Description: Noah is quick to notice that there is dissent among the Nomads. Now that they're no longer on the run from a common enemy there's a restlessness. Old Monsoon visits with his wares and tall tales and wheedles an invitation to stay the night. In the morning, Noah discovers he's taken his PH-Ts and he and Arushka set off to the get the precious time travel device back. Meanwhile in North Col, Becky tries to cover for Noah's absence by producing the Noahgram, a hologrammatic version of himself which Noah has recently created. Its behaviour creates bizarre situationsand the ruse is quickly discovered. Chip, annoyed at being left behind, determined to catch Monsoon by himself. Against Kwan's warnings, he saddles up Moshi, Arushka's majestic black mare. Arushka and Noah catch up with Monsoon and demand the PH-Ts returned, but the crafty old man denies having seen them. Meanwhile, Chip is having trouble with MoshiÑbut he hears the rattle of Monsoons pots and pans in the distance and manages to spur the horse on É into the woods. All is silent and there is no sign of Monsoon, but something in the bushes frightens Moshi. She rears and Chip is thrown into a pit of quicksand. The frightened horse bolts, leaving Chip alone and helpless, sinking further into the quagmire. What could have frightened Moshi so much she'd leave a Nomad in Peril? Alerted to the danger by Moshi, bridled but riderless, Noah and Arushka race to Chip's rescue. But they're too lateÉ as Chip disappears below the sand four strangers to Haven haul him outÑMyah, a barbaric looking young woman and her three brothers, Rorden, Tod and Lyal. Not only have they saved Chip's life, they also have the PH-Ts, which Rorden reluctantly relinquishes. The Nomads and the new family pledge a wary friendship. With the PH-Ts returned, Noah must face the fact that there is no source of power for them in Haven. How will he get back to North Col?
