The Kiran'Tai is underway and Konda has committed murder to be the victor. Borga struggles to bring proof of Konda's betrayal back to the tribes with the help of a stranger that helped him escape from the jaws of death, literally. Meanwhile, back at the gathering, there are rumors of an evil bearing down on the other races of the world and Timank, Borga's wife, reveals her new born child to the tribe.
By the end, the tribes will all have changed within just a few days, even though many will not feel it for years to come.
And it is all because of a new born Minotaur with snow white fur. The one they all label kho'ven, ill omen.
