Summary[edit | edit source]
After Emily and company find the city of Cielis, they attempt to see the Guardian Council, but they slowly realize that something strange is going on in the city, particularly for the fact it is empty. Emily's stone tells her she will not hear the stone's voice after she arrives in Cielis, and warns her of a hallway she should not walk down. Emily is sent to the void, which is a simulation which the stonekeepers have to survive. If they die, they're turned to stone. Other young stonekeepers show up angry at Max for omitting this fact, but Ronin and Pierce help Emily, and Max follows. Meanwhile, Leon, Enzo and Rico roam the city, finding it empty, contrary to Leon's memories of the busy streets. A girl called Alyson Hunter takes them to her family restaurant upon discovering they aren't "ghosts", where she explains that the Guardian Council was actually dead but re-animated to trick them into coming, and they rescue Trellis and Luger from their jail cell in Cielis. Meanwhile, Cogsley and Miskit are taken by an older stonekeeper named Vigo, and they also adopt a baby wyvern, which Cogsley names Dagno, after the robot that Silas had never finished building. They leave to go find Cielis and rejoin the others, and Vigo decides to return with them as well. Emily, Max and the other tested stonekeepers find the last shard of the Mother Stone, a stone that was used to create all of the amulets. The other stonekeepers turn to stone, and Emily finds out that they were simply reanimated dead stonekeepers. Max is revealed to be working for the Elf King, and brings the Mother Stone to him.
