As Layna and Gryffon desperately attempt to persuade the Treymayne council of the impending threat of King Nathair's use of blood-magic and the warning signs of Nuko's awakening, their attention is suddenly diverted to an issue much more personal. As the situation intensifies, Gryffon finds he must abandon his efforts to fight for something he values even more than his country...Layna's life.
