Carnival of the Soul : It is the mettle to proceed that matters …
The Labyrinth behind him, Terry and company arrive on the Eastern Steppes in the midst of a carnival, and a fateful decision puts him under a dire curse. Stripped of his bond powers and exiled to the dreamlike Wildervast, he must find and free the ultimate witch, then kill an invincible man.
Meanwhile, those left behind must face the machinations of the tauren herd leaders, whose law allows them to take a template for common use, and the remnants of Theseus’ bonds in search of revenge.
Beyond all, there remain the inscrutable machinations of Vlad the Dreamer, and the immortal might of the Twilight Zone’s gorgon, Stheno.

He then dropped his sword and crouched, supporting himself with his hands on his knees. While they were technically only sparring, they were doing so using real weapons, and over the course of the last week both of them had sustained life-threatening injuries.

Terry grinned and said, “Thanks, but I can’t take all the credit. I’ve got great teachers, and Prada’s helping my body learn the habits it needs.”
Yuri nodded as he straightened and said, “Take every advantage. Given what little I have seen of your life, I know you will need them all. I think we are done for today.”
“How do I measure up?” Terry asked, pressing the bloody-hafted lumbering ax into the knot of the deceptive red silk sash at his waist. Prada accepted the weapon and held it for him.”
