Through loss comes rebirth...
After losing someone precious to them, Gabriel, Solomon, and Florian have grown even closer. Gabriel has spent the last year learning as much as he can about magic. Florian has taken an enthusiastic worker under his wing, someone who may represent the future of Vienna's best coffeeshop. And Solomon has been struggling to discover how faith fits into an ever-changing world.
But with a new year comes new problems, and the trees in Augarten are getting sick... even the one that has proven to be so critical to Gabriel's survival. As Gabriel himself falls ill, he digs into Florian's old journals. He hopes the tear-soaked pages will hold the answer to what to do with the powerful magic that has such a deep link to Florian's past and that may be the key to Gabriel's future. The nature spirit wants the magic and is growing impatient, but how can Gabriel relinquish it after so much has been sacrificed on its behalf?
With Vienna and the rest of the world brought to a standstill in a spreading pandemic, Florian's business struggling to survive, and Solomon reporting to a hospital to help those suffering, Gabriel scrambles to find an answer that will save everyone he loves without losing what he has worked so hard for.
