The book then considers the Polish insurgents against Russian rule of andarticulate protesters, if they escaped execution, against Siberian exile. The journey inland, however, takes place after the events told of in The Odyssey. Each character's date of birth and death were moved forward multiple years. Easy enough mistake to make, I guess.

Gradually Goryanchikov overcomes his revulsion at his situation and his fellow convicts, undergoing a spiritual re-awakening that culminates with his release from the camp. This experience allowed him to describe with great authenticity the conditions of prison life and the characters of the convicts. It was a stark contrast with his own heightened sensitivity. Her peace is short-lived as Kaitlyn begins to see visions of a menacing dead girl and becomes stressed when she cannot see her little sister Jaimie, who was placed into foster care.

She stood very still in the dusky passage where the light was poorest. Sounds pretty reasonable to me. Kaitlyn also tries to discover the Shyan's identity via a charm supplied by Haji. Once escaped, Naida hides Kaitlyn in the school basement and reveals Kaitlyn's location - and the secret of the dual souls - to their friends, who are surprised and skeptical but supportive. First to approach is Elpenor, one of Odysseus' men who died just before the crew left Circe's home.
