It’s been three years since Dandelion began traveling the world with the young, spirited bard who entrusted him with her heart at the Belleteyn fires in Oxenfurt. Three years and they’ve seen plenty of adventure and excitement together, filling the world with music, following the road and their hearts, and for the first time in his life he can’t think of a single addition to make his life anymore perfect than it is.
Perfect. Everything is perfect. It really and truly is, except that his fiftieth birthday approaches with the month of November and his lovely companion has started acting strange and distant, making him question the security of their arrangement.
Approaching Lyria shortly before Saovine and the dawn of a new year, Dandelion is forced to face his past, his present and his future, which suddenly doesn’t feel very certain at all.
When the ghost of his oldest and dearest friend slips through the thin veil between worlds on Saovine to provide him with some much needed council, Dandelion discovers things aren’t always as complicated as they seem and that sometimes the simplest answers are the ones a man can only come to with the aid of a wise old friend.
