~* Book 5 of the Salak'patan Series *~
The clocks have turned and time has passed since Monorth was snatched out of their shared lives on the edge of the unexplored hallways, but for the family he has left behind, Hope is a thing both dangerous and all important. Though they have found proof of his journey through history and been reassured that his fate has not yet been decided as he tries to fight his way back through the quagmire of forgotten history to rejoin them, the answer to that all important question has not yet been written into that history. Will Monorth be able to navigate his way through the past or is it his destiny to be fade into annuls of forgotten lore, far from home and alone. Even though Monorth has fulfilled his promise to guide and nurture a being capable of making time-travel possible and see to it that she reached the future to fulfill an all important role for all the peoples of the Salak'patan, his fate remains in doubt.
For the family he has left behind the Hope that keeps them moving forward even as it threatens to break their hearts, the search has been given a powerful new champion to aid them in their search for answers. Jynx, the Avatar who is the fulfillment of Monorth's promise and a being capable of making time travel a reality, has joined them in their sanctuary and become a part of their increasingly strange family, but she can only offer them hints of where her creator might have been. So it is that the search for answers goes on, and it leads all of them into the last direction they might have expected, into the very same history that has prevented Monorth from returning to them. Will they find the answers they hope to find or will they discover the truth that they all fear, only time will tell.
