Sophie continues her trades with the monsters in the woods, only this time she has more at stake than just staying alive. Her husband has returned from the war, and he's dying of battle sickness. But the old Gypsy won't tend to his wounds unless Sophie sticks to her commitment to trade with another monster in the woods, and bring back the magical monster-stones, that only Sophie and a monster can make. Sophie must complete the task before sunrise. Little does she know that the new monster she's taken to is incapable of making the moonstones into monster-stones, but just having touched them has doomed the monster to a horrible fate, unless they can find another monster to fertilize the moonstones quickly before the sun rises once again.
