Chapter 4

Available from July 26–August 2

Bertil and Tankred, still searching for Tilda, wind up getting captured and taken prisoner by the community of women, whose wonderful hospitality nevertheless requires strict adherence to the rules. As the princess recovers, witnessing a mysterious late-night rendezvous, Bertil meets Frida, a guest living apart from the other women. She reveals to him the existence of a text he believed to be a myth: The Golden Age. But before he can learn any more, the farmhouse suddenly comes under attack from a horde of soldiers, appeared out of thin air.
