On the way, she meets a familiar spirit, Blue and together they travel into the depths of the dark migration where not all ghosts are friendly and the creature of darkness, Teemencaag lurks in the shadows. Can Nyssa learn the meaning of fear and intuition in time to save her village before Teemencaag breaches the magical walls and destroys everything she loves?
