Drogo arrives with news from the Citadel of Xax's impending Coronation. Xax has declared he will go on the Pilgrimage of Kings alone, as the Statutes require ... But when has Xax ever obeyed the Statutes? Will is convinced this must be a trap, and not a very subtle one at that. Aruna, however, has become impatient and angry with Will's passivity since Kalem's "death". Against orders, she goes after Xax - and is herself captured.

To prove Aruna's loyalty to Xax, she will fight the first combat to the death - and her partner will be: William Tell.

He is the Chosen One; his life is paramount. Kalem orders will to kill Aruna. Gar creates enough of a disturbance for the band to escape - but with the death of Aruna all seems lost. The others turn on Will, they cannot believe he could have betrayed one of them so callously. Will, equally appalled and equally heartsick - abandons the Quest - and the Princess - and he and Alvar set off on their own once more ... Written by Anonymous See less
