Sandra and Jax are close and they connect with the rest of the group hoping to get another member, a demon, to work with and free Alex. There are many variables involved and the author includes the fact that Alex uses dreams to connect to her friends and Ryan and sometimes it’s hard to tell whether something is real or in her imaginary dreams. Hoping the cat can help her release the bracelet and find her way back to her friends before the King gets what he wants.
Things spiral out of control as Sandra connects with Alex and Ryan sees her in his dreams while waiting for the team adding in Dana, Valiant, Jax and the rest to form a plan to get Alex away from the King. When a call comes in from someone named Nora who they have not heard from in years they should have realized that this might be a trap and what they see is total destruction, death, devastation created by a diabolic King that has yet to reveal what he wants besides Alex as his prisoner. The scene is quite graphically depicted and the author even through the King and the others creates sound effects as the screams, fire, and harrowing experience should have forewarned them that getting to Alex would take much more than what they had already planned or dished out. When Sandra finally gets to Alex she tells her to get out and leave her. Dana created something that would eat through anything and hopefully remove the bracelet but will it eat through Alex too?
Every time Alex thinks she is home free or safe the King comes at her with different ways of torturing her. Nora is injured and Alex wants to bring her back. Nora is a Seer like Jax and they both need to find a way to bring Sandra and Logan to her but how can they get past the spell surrounding where they are? The king has devised a sick and diabolical plan and would allow Nora and her family to hear the anguish from Troy, but he would keep their loved ones from getting to them fast enough. Bodies were falling, people died in front of her and if Logan could see that was going to happen to Nora and if Troy called out, then they may be the only ones to help reach outside of his trap. This is a story of friendship, loyalties, distrust, betrayals, murder, fear, and a king that is focused on taking out Nora but why? As Alex looks at the dead and their loved ones distraught and crying will she find a way back home, will she bring Lestan back and what about Justin? Thatcher appears to be trusted but is he working with the King? Promising to protect her yet she could have left with Versus, Misa and been save and trying to fend for themselves knowing that Lestan would never have a chance at life again. But, things unravel in tragic way as Alex thinks that Lestan and Thatcher are her friends that Versa and Misa will be there to protect her but somehow the King just might win. He has brought someone there and demands that this person give her loyalty to him and states but can you trust him that Alex will go free but she is smart, has a wise mouth and the end result you just won’t believe. Justin came to keep her safe but was he really Justin? Hearing Lestan talk about Justin and telling Alex that he could never hate her and that somehow they can make things safe for her in Avalon but only if the King is taken down and that does not look like it might happen any time soon unless she can regain her powers and take him down but can she murder someone and live with it? All of a sudden Alex realizes that she might have been deceived by everyone that she trusted: Verus, Misa, Thatcher, Leston and even Ryan and where is Ryan? Gaia was manipulated too into working for the King and as she realizes that she might have the same fate as so many others that she just witnessed as author Parker Sinclair throws someone a dangerous curve ball and the end result is the king’s close around the last link to her friends and she hears Ryan scream and outside of the dungeon she lives in she sees Logan, Sandra and the mouths are moving but she hears nothing until a thunderous noise comes out and then the two pins that Versus gave her Serenity and Chaos take over and the end result is a fight to the death as in Chapter 16 titled Trust Alex will face off and she will have to deal with the fall out.
