At long last, Sadie Sugarspear has entered the City of Revelathia.
At a local bookstore, she mysteriously finds a copy of Travelers of the Dust, the very book that has followed her all her life. Its words, stories, and characters take her back to her past, but as Sadie tries to find a quiet place to read, a voice calls for her.
It turns out that the voice belongs to Joseph, who Sadie believed dead. Sadie is confused, but happy to see him, and realizes that he owns a part of her heart—the part that does not belong to Alasdair. Joseph gifts Sadie a very special stone before sending her on her way to the City of Revelathia’s inner circle: the Kingdom. There, she finds a palace more magnificent than anything she’s ever known and is immediately greeted and cared for like a princess.
Now, she must wait for the king to grant her wishes…
