Joining Dinah, Vincent and Edaniel is the second of the four tower guards, Edrear. He is Edaniel's brother and takes a much more active role in battling the spirits. This is especaily useful as the spirits are much more deceptive than earlier encounters.

This time they face IXI who lives in a pleasure palace where everyone has two faces and everything appears in it's duality, Keeper who deliberately blinded her brother Finder as a child before herself going blind in both eyes in later life, and a ghost who lives within a maze who tricks them all into giving in to their true desires. There are are great twists and turns in trying to find the spirits and the chapter with their true desires was very revealing.

The tension mounts between Dinah and Vincent. He is jealous of Edrear who he sees as a rival for Dinah's heart. There are some great witty comments from Edaniel and a little more about Dinah;s aunt who she now refers to as her mother. There are also some more comments about the mysterious ghost of Addie Clark. Another great addition to the series.
