So Adriane runs off to the portal field to hone her Magic Tracking skills. She manages to see through Stormbringer’s eyes, and sense everything the wolf does. Adriane’s so overcome with emotion that she howls.
And then the portal opens.
A black mistwolf steps through, and he’s not very pleased that Adriane summoned him with a wolfsong. (Apparently howling — sorry, wolfsong — is Serious Business.) He tries to attack Adriane, but Stormbringer conveniently intervenes.
The black mistwolf introduces himself as Moonshadow, leader of the mistwolf pack. He invites Stormbringer to run with them in the pack’s time of need. Stormbringer, who always thought she was the last of her kind, decides to join him. Adriane tries to follow, but … well, let’s just say Moonshadow isn’t very fond of humans and bars Adriane from coming along.
And now Adriane’s all sad and alone. Aww.
Adriane learned Wolfsong!
Stormbringer leaves the party!
EDIT: Changes in the e-book edition
- The portal field is no longer as big as a football field.
Next time: The Catty Girls and Cool Dudes take the Ravenswood Tour. It doesn’t go well.
