Jon’s only route now is south, directly towards his enemies, but with the aid of their new dwarven friend, not only are new ways opened up to them, but it may be that there is a place where he might finally have the shard removed from his chest and be healed. But as they head south, Lucifer’s daughter has given the sorcerers free reign to use the ancient and abhorrent blood magic. An army is heading north that even Jon will struggle to kill, even with his new magic.
But Jon is not alone and Jacob has powers he doesn’t even know of. Together they may have a chance, if they can resist the temptations of their own desires and powers and their new friends don’t kill them first!
