"Full-scale war has erupted between the Crusaders and the demons and even Chi has to admit that it isn't going well. Like any sensible rat, Meda's eager to abandon the sinking ship but, unfortunately, her friends aren't nearly as pragmatic. Instead, Meda's forced to try to keep them all alive until the dust settles. As the Crusaders take more and more drastic measures, the tables turn and Meda suddenly finds herself in the role of Voice of Sanity. No one is more horrified than she is. When old enemies reappear as new allies and old friends become new enemies, Meda has to decide—again—whose side she's really on."
