As Rheidan woke up in the Shadow Realm, he pondered about what could be done now. His plan had failed and he didn’t have the Artifact. He had to make Selik pay for what happened.
A voice in the shadows called out to him. “Rheidan, I wish to make you an offer. I have a plan that will get all of the Shadow Elementals back to the real world and you can go along with them. You just have to get me something.”
“Anything,” Rheidan agreed.
Malochi laughed in the distance.
