“Michiko.” She stopped and looked back at Puck. “Sometimes, you can't have everything go your way,” he said. “Sometimes you have to make the best of a bad situation, make a bad choice.”
so,” Michiko said, barely keeping her emotions in check. “But this
isn't a game. This isn't something you can decide by flipping a coin.
Maybe you see it differently, but all I see are refugees who are scared
because they may lose their new home and a lonely girl who can't even
afford warm clothes. And I have to help them, all of them. It's why I do

Michiko, the hero known as the Monkey Queen, and geek girl Beth
McGill thought it would be easy. They've become good friends since they
started working together to save the world, why not become roommates? Of
course, that was before the kitchen fire. And the broken bedroom door.
Not to mention the cranky guinea pig.
But they have bigger problems ahead. A shady real estate deal has
left two new groups of Emigres arguing over a meadow. Other Emigres are
vanishing without a trace. And enemies old and new lurk in the woods, in
the shadows, even in dreams.
Can Michiko and Beth stop the darkness that lies ahead...or will they be the next victims?
