Alyx and her guard are on to the next task…and there are surprises around every corner. With the reality of her last guard showing up, things are on track for her court to be formidable, and she knows without a doubt that regardless of anyone's beginnings, they, as a unit, will be making this task something both easy and satisfying. But they are not the only ones on this task. The hobs and the Light Court have their eye on the prize as well, and this time Incanta is not taking any risks…she's coming to compete herself. And when tragedy strikes, will Alyx and her guard be able to power through and do what needs done, or give up their prize to those that would try to ruin them?
