Lady Cici wants Jack to live, but not for Jack’s sake.
Though the prospect of marrying a prince preserves her sanity, Cici’s heart is still in anguish over the death of her childhood sweetheart, Ornardo. Being Lord Shusha’s daughter, she has learned many arcane crafts. Injecting the soul of a dead person into a living body is one of them.
Jack slips into a helpless stupor and wakes up to find himself in a very strange situation. His body is painted blue, Lady Cici calls him ‘Ornardo’ and gazes at him with eyes glittering with passion. He realises, to his utter horror, that he is no longer the master of his own body, which is now occupied by two souls.
To his bewilderment, Ornardo, the master of Jack’s body, is also tormented. The long sleep he has just woken up from, the realization of his own death and the death of his parents, and, above all, the unknown fate of Lizi, his beloved sister, fills Ornardo with dread and despair. Jack and Ornardo discover that Lizi is alive, and that she is in danger. Ornardo must save her, but he cannot save her alone – he needs Jack’s help.
Dr. Pentland is troubled: genes don’t lie. Prince Mapolos is not a legitimate prince, that is why his genes are incompatible with Bo’s. If the treatment goes ahead, Prince Mapolos would be killed as the result of it. If Dr. Pentland is ever to get the energy-rich “blue-moon” stones needed to save the Earth, a miracle is needed.
Brianna is the miracle, Teilo knows it, the land of Taron knows it. She will become a targar woman, the hope of the land, if only she swallows the Pearl of Targar. However, Lord Shusha and Dr. Pentland know that after swallowing the magical pearl Brianna will develop healing powers, and they devise a plan to use her extraordinary abilities to make the treatment of Prince Mapolos a success. Then Prince Mapolos will have a chance to become king, and Earth will prosper once more.
