It's time for Constance Stephens to leave the Sharla Ganz Performance and Fairie Review caravan, to say goodbye to the roadies, and Theresa Wonder, to Sharla, and to Bliggo the Clown. She's going to travel with Percy "Spade" Alexander in the hopes of finding her old mentor, Red, and possibly discover what it was that crashed in the woods off in the distance. Will Sharla let her go without a fight? And what about Percy's responsibilities as a mercenary of justice?
