With Rose who enters into a Squire’s contract with him, Sorey goes to Pendrago and purifies the dead dragon which has continued to fester Malevolence. Then, Alisha’s voice reaches him from Ladylake, calling for his help to deal with the tornadoes that have appeared. She loses connection with him but Alisha heads for Sitole which is in the path of the tornado, intent on rescuing the people. Alisha and her knights arrive safely, but even here, a hellion attacks. Just as she is about to be swallowed up by this mud-like hellion, the seraph Zaveid arrives.
