They've won. The palace is won. One of the wolves slinks through Rayek's hard-fought opening toward the castle, Nightfall goes to fetch her lovemate and the children while Cutter and several of the others go to retrieve Leetah.

Nightfall finds the GoBack lodge littered with troll bodies, Dewshine's Trollhammer dead and Redlance catatonic. She deep-sends with him, using the knowledge that he holds her soulname to delve past the trauma and twine her soulname with his--Lifemates, recognition be-damned.

Leetah has cut One-Eye free from the wrapstuff and healed his body, but his spirit has fled, and feel deeply ashamed at the abuse of her healing gift.

The elves all converge on the opening Rayek has forced leading to the Palace of the High Ones carrying One-Eye's breathing husk. They see a wolf writhing outside the metal shell the Trolls were building around the palace and are all shocked when she shifts form and the WolfRiders recognize Timmain, mother of their race.

Rayek flies over the shell, leaving the rest of the elves to ponder how they can gain entrance to the Palace when the Holt Trolls arrive to contrive an opening so the Elves can see that the Palace is just a wreck and leave.

Timmain, with Rayek's help, sets Petalwing on its way to open the chamber of Srolls, but the High One who operated the Scroll of Colors has died in a damaged cocoon so Timmain has Petalwing encase her in wrapstuff and tells the true tale of where the Elves came from and how they came to be trapped on a planet where their powers don't work well--that the "dig-dig" trolls are responsible does not come as a surprise to the GoBacks. Locksending the story with Suntop narrating aloud the far-away tribes of SunFolk and Gliders get to learn the story as well, even as Rainsong gives birth to the new healer Mender.

Deciding that the Palace is theirs, the WolfRiders head off to find a green place to live, the Go Backs head back to their lodge and Rayek, Ekuar and Skywise stay to study the Palace and its secrets.

Before too long Skywise rejoins the WolfRiders -- apparently the Palace has not windows or skylights because he couldn't see the stars.

The Quest is Ended.
