In a nearby forest where he is now the hunted, Bajaret meets people reengineered in the Boston labs beneath the ice. Richard is more beast than human; sly Nancy, and Errol demand that Bajazet aid them in their efforts to destroy Boston, a place where evil rules. Bajaret would prefer to hide, but also learns that the Bostonians plan to attack his beloved Middle Kingdom, currently in chaos caused by the royal deaths. He begins to question whether conspiratorial murders occurred.

This science fiction occurs approximately six centuries after Jupiter' orbit changed causing a new ice age (see SNOWFALL).
