With the green stone retrieved from Gallamaya Falls, and now safely in Adeema's possession, she is rightfully deemed the possessor of the stones. She realizes that, her once thought, duty has quickly become her destiny. While having fallen deeply in love with Rainin, she also builds trusting friendships, and is blessed with many heartfelt moments; but those don't come without an increase in enemies, and overwhelming moments of heartache. One thing for sure that has not changed; and that is the fact that her relationship with Damien has remained the same. Her introduction to Lieutenant General Killian left her with the undeniable reality that this huge man is much scarier than the young prince she nicknamed, "the beautiful bastard", could ever be.
Adeema is well aware that her new journey will begin sooner then she wants; and has no doubt in her mind that Sir Rominon will appear in his unusual brilliant style to guide her into the unknown. White lilies left by the great wizard lead her to where those sane would never go. Little does she know that deep within the bowels of darkness lurk more than just bats, roaches and spiders. She gets more than she bargains for when she and the men are faced with ear piercing creatures called Geikovians; and a serpent woman once thought to be nothing more than a myth.
It will take more than their gut instincts to survive, and find a way back to the surface from a place that holds more secrets, and lies then she ever thought imaginable. Meticulous thinking and team work leave Adeema uncomforable in knowing that the men will do more than their part in the search. This time they must solve the rhymes and riddles that etch themselves out on the cave walls. With no room for error, things quickly heat up: leaving them all to once again trust one another in the scariest place on earth, or so they think. For there is definitely more hidden in the darkness just beyond, "The Gateway to Geiken Cove!"
