Kensho and Thurma are worlds apart and their hopes of being reunited begin to dim. Alongside her rival, Nita, Thurma studies under the tutelage of the legendary Fireling elder known simply as The Fire That Stays. As the two prospective queens compete against one another, their teacher reveals new abilities of the Firelings with dark and powerful potential that could change the throne forever. In Thra, Kensho's quest takes him to a place of wonder long forgotten...the Valley of the Mystics. There, alongside his companions, Kensho will need to face his past and the future he so desperately flees. Writer Adam Smith (Long Walk to Valhalla) and artist Alexandria Huntington continue Kensho and Thurma's quests as the fate of two worlds hang in the balance.
