Something is wrong. Lakali can’t figure out why her clear-thinking sessions are leaving her upset and frightened. Plagued by the “daymares” that now take over the sessions, Lakali wonders if she should go to the leaders for help, but something tells her that isn’t a good idea. All of the islanders believe that their leaders provide the sessions to help them make wise decisions. How would the leaders react if Lakali told them what was happening to her? Still, the more she remembers, the more frightening her life becomes. Do the leaders truly have the islanders’ best interests at heart, or is there something more sinister going on? Worse yet, will Lakali be able to convince her best friend and the man she loves that she isn’t going crazy before it’s too late?
