The world isn't always as it appears, and home isn't always a safe place. The Lonely Tower has always been home for Sebastian, but the time has come for secrets to be revealed, as the monastery's true nature is uncovered. Sebastian's quest for the idea of home leads him to a memory he dares to relive, and an ancient myth he hoped to avoid.
The twins return on their own mission as they join the monks who have prepared for every eventuality except the one coming. The roses have been whispering for a long time, but their message has changed as they speak through cold stones and living flames. The journey is unfinished as it promises to take them deeper than ever before, but they will have to venture to the forgotten and forbidden places looming large with history, known and unknown.
Sleeping secrets no longer rest as the Walk of the Dead awakens, and those who know it best no longer idly watch. Sebastian prepares to face the devastation following and forcing him to take the final step to the future he can no longer ignore.
