Our Delvers are scattered across the Heart. Hyponikon colludes with the Blood-Witch Voto to rescue Muz'zel and their son from the Briar. Meanwhile, Muz'zel and Clawde commence their hunt for a Blood Gibbon to present to the Gryndel Club. Finally, Moon's Chosen Light undergoes a ritual to become a scion of the angel, Theolosian. What is clear is that something, or someone, is hunting the Heart. Though who, or what, it is none of them can say.
