The protagonists deal with the fallout of capturing the Infernal nemesis. Including the Nightman being particularly cross about Tepet Ejava having hidden her involvement with the Apostate Juno. We then recap the story of the gremlin containment adventure back when Shockwave was attempting to enter Creation from the north. The circle then decides to go hunt down the Five Metal Shrike with little to no planning, as is their way. Then they go hang out Ma-Ha-Suchi, and that leads to another mirror being found. We all know how those work out.
