The lilac waters of the ice moon are filled with a false sense of peace. Z and Lord X have remained hidden. There have been no new Horrturn attacks, confirming the belief that the Horrturn Queen can be trusted. Believing all is well, Jeanip finally takes King Enok’s advice and retires, turning his role of Supreme Commander over to Jazee and starts a family with Phameena. He undergoes the necessary operations to rebuild his middle wings so he can care for his newborn son in his birthing pouch. Inspired by the thought of a newborn, Europa and Kiijon decide it is time for them to try for their long hoped for daughter.This false sense of peace is soon shattered as the lilac waters turn deep purple with blood. An assassination attempt is made on Jeanip in the medical facility. Realizing Z and Lord X are still formidable foes, the monarchs and Jazee search for the identity of Lord X and are determined to find the traitors. But they are well hidden. They attack again, this time going after Mytwindee, Kiijon’s mother, in hopes of drawing the monarchs out from behind the palace’s fortified walls. Their plan works and the monarchs rush to Mytwindee’s defense. Z and Lord X launch a Horrturn assault against the monarchs and the city.No longer able to deny the fact that Z is somehow controlling the Horrturn, Europa and Kiijon know there is only one way to stop him AND the Horrturn. No weapon in their arsenal can stop these beasts. Only the four Lilac Orbs can. They must be found, returned to their place in the Deep Desert and the lilac veil re-established. But How? Even if the three lost Orbs can be found, the fourth Orb is on Earth with Terrance, three hundred and sixty-five million miles away. With no starship and no portal, how can they possibly retrieve the last Orb? And without it, the monarchs have no hope of saving their people.
