April starts to feel effects of sharing her heart with Corakinus, and his attempts to sever the attachment only make it stronger. When April’s estranged father makes a startling appearance she confronts him with Shadow Kin force, manifesting traits of the Shadow Kin leader.

Frightened by this extraordinary new-found power, April seeks comfort in Ram, and vows to reclaim her heart as her own. Meanwhile, something strange is happening to the others – London is slowly being infested with unusual, sinister flower petals.
