The Ember and the Knife
by Chris Loblaw
The saddest sort of homecoming brings Mallory, Kean and Robert back together after 2 years. The three friends have found out that the cruelties of life cannot be wished away or banished by a spell. But as they struggle to reconnect with each other and mend their hurting families, an arcane menace returns, threatening the manyworlds tied together by the Spellbound Railway.
