"Huey" Anthony Disward and Dalian trek to the land owned by Sergeant Callavos, where it is rumored that a Phantom Book may be located. With the help of a local herbalist named Thalia, the two reach a remote village and begin to confirm relevant information to their investigation. Although it has been reported that Callavos perished alongside his family in a gruesome fire six months prior, his daughter Florence has been sighted in a nearby forest—and is suspected of causing the blaze. To verify these allegations once and for all, Huey and Dalian travel to the lord's manor, only to uncover the truth behind a thorny past.

Too long, I'd say! It's been over a year and our Black Biblioprincess returns in this special episode with her partner, Huey. We miss her and it's here in this episode that we see Dalian who once again presents some supernatural mystery.
