Chapter 2.34 is the thirty-seventh chapter of Volume 2.
Ryoka has rested in a cave for two days, after having drunk Teriarch's potion of haste, but is now slowly back on her way to Liscor. For pastime, she talks to the Frost Faeries and learns several important things. A Gnoll [Hunter] appears, to lead Ryoka back to the Stonespear Tribe. Ryoka notices how all animals are gone.
Zel and his prisoner Ilvriss are bickering as they follow Ryoka, roughly a day behind her. They both have their respective armies with them, and Zel is also aware of something dangerous lurking around them.
At the Stone Spears campsite, Ryoka gets a healing poultice and then joins the tribe in their search for the missing child Mrsha, trying to find her before the blizzard hits. After searching for a whole day, they return not having found her. But Ryoka wants to give it another try, and bargains with the Faeries for the life of the child. Urksh also offers anything his tribe can offer to safe Mrsha, and a deal is struck.
As Ryoka follows the Faeries in search for Mrsha; Zel marches through the snowstorm to find the Gnoll tribe; while some dark entity continues to slaughter members of the Stone Spears tribe and reanimate their dead bodies.
