In the 4th story of The Bekka Chronicles, a time-traveling shapeshiftress sends Bekka of Thorns 1000 years into the past to perform a task. What task? The frustrated Bekka is unsure and blames the shapeshiftress for failing to give her enough instruction. Adventuring for the first time without her best friend Kar, Bekka is left to stumble all alone in the Woods Beyond the Wood. She is forced to rely solely on her thorough knowledge of historical lore to determine the unknown task she believes must be performed to keep the future as she knows it and likes it. She encounters and recognizes from ancient tales a shy woodlock and twin water wizards. Seeing no other option, Bekka assumes her task is somehow tied to the trio, and she proceeds to take action on that assumption. Is she right? She'll never know until she returns to her own time and finds it changed...or not.
