At the request of Nettie's spiritual advisor N'Dour, a former Geomancer-in-training, Jack travels to the bayou where he finds a back door into the Lost Land. When he arrives, Jack does not know why he was sent, or even who the players are. He encounters a dino-rider by the name of Elya, with whom he travels to Mothergod's tower. At the tower, Jack witnesses a climactic battle between Mothergod and Solar. Choosing sides, Jack attacks Solar, allowing Mothergod the chance she needs to imprison Solar inside a wormhole, while Jack is seemingly killed by Solar.
