Suntop rescued and Winnowill injured and fled, the Wolfriders return to the main Glider chamber where Leetah heals Lord Voll back to consciousness. We learn that Winnowill was Voll's lovemate when Blue Mountain was founded, but as the years passed with no new births Winnowill grew restive, disappearing once for years and when she returned she was "much the way she is now."
Curious as to what prompted her rash actions Leetah "introduces" Petalwing and Lord Voll remembers -- the High Ones' Home! Admitting that the gliders are not really the High Ones, but that Voll's parents WERE members of the crashlanded original elves Voll "sends" them the story of what led to the founding of Blue Mountain.
Then he kidnaps Cutter, Leetah, Choplicker, Ember & Suntop--on his own quest to return to the home of the High Ones.
Until a large arrow kills Lord Voll and the gliders abandon the Wolfriders as trolls attack. Wounds are received, Leetah has to kill a troll, and One Eye is fatally wounded before a new strange tribe of Elves arrive to fight the trolls with the WolfRiders.
