In Part 2, A Land in Peril, Mason, Adam and Tom realise they have the seven Life Elements that were lost in the Diminishing, a catastrophic event that distorted the World Without and the creatures in it. As the source of all life, the Marou believe the seven Elements are the only cure to the sickness that afflicts them. The boys are tested to their limits as they embark on a quest to save the Marou and emerge as the new ‘Keepers of the Elements’, a task only ever earned by the most learned and skilled of the Marou. However, even before they set off, Septus hears of their plans and sets a trap, in the hope of gaining the Elements to use against the Marou, the boys, and the people of the World Within.
During their quest, the boys must discover the true ‘Places of Finding’. They travel to the six surviving Guilds, each a centre of learning dedicated to a single Life Element. However, the Elements are hazardous and veiled in secrecy that could take their lives or entrap them forever.
With the help of the Marou, Mason, Adam and Tom must overcome their own fears and weaknesses if they are to pass the tests of the Elements and overcome the trickery of Septus—only fully revealed in their final moments of triumph.
