The story so far:
Ellette and Rand have fallen into a dream-world where they are supposed to be enjoying their honeymoon as part of a ‘gift’ given to them by their not-quite human friends. Rand is a bard with musical gifts, Ellette, a hero, able to dreamwalk and bend such worlds in ways she’s only recently begun to control.
They are shown to their honeymoon cottage by Miss Muffet. Rand finds a musical instrument, much like the one he lost in his waking life. Ellette, unable to listen to him playing without the music stirring painful memories, goes on a walk in the forest. She is captured by Boudicca, a fierce warrior queen.
