Valerie succeeded. The queen is dead; now the artifact can be retrieved. She takes the Soul dagger key dropped out from the priest's robes. Touching it, Valerie feels tremendous energy and a surge of strength. Something inside tells Valerie that symbols on the cube are the names of all the missing people-is that what they call the Book of Souls?
"Carve a symbol on the book and free the souls," is what the pagan incanted. Valerie finally understands what the dagger is for and remembers the symbol given by the cultist. Plunging the dagger into the Book of Souls, she only has time to turn her face away before everything shatters into tiny pieces and the souls of the missing people break free!
But Valerie's beloved isn't here, was it really the wrong village?!
