Something lurks in the shadows, watching, waiting. A darkness threatens the happiness Ri and Shaw have found in each other and the life they might build together. Ri is getting closer to finding a way home, which will put her family out of danger, but if Ri and Shaw are to have a future in any century, they'll need to find this threat and eliminate it.
