Amelie always thought there was no way out of it, no way to defeat Magnus and the Draug. She also wondered why Myrnin kept so calm and enthusiastic when she couldn't. How he could stay strong when she, the strongest and most powerful person in Morganville, couldn't contain her consuming fear.

Myrnin had a secret, one that held the key to defeating the Draug and saving Morganville. He also knew that this secret wouldn't stay a secret for much longer.
