The gods wanted to kill Bianca Monroe.

But she's not going anywhere.

Join Bianca Monroe—and all her beloved friends—as she returns to her life under the trees in Letum Wood. Her body needs time to heal.

Just like her spirit.

Not all scars can be seen, though they wreak the same havoc. Bianca grapples with deep emotions, nightmares, and reunions with beloved friends and family members, in the aftermath of her choices under the Alaysian sky.

Did she make the right choice, alone in Alaysia, when all lay against her?

THE RETURNING is the eight novella in the Network Saga. This heartwarming novella will sweep you into the heart of Letum Wood—and our favorite witch that cradles the forest in her heart.

This is what I needed! I needed to close up the unknown in Bianca's life after returning from the land of mortals and gods. This is a very short in between novella that ties up a bunch of loose ends from The Forgotten Gods. I am at peace! Now I'm ready for the war!!!

Jennifer Chi

This novella is a pleasant little surprise after finishing The Forgotten Gods. It is the story of Bianca coming home to her forest, to her home, to her people. Alaysia was a great new adventure, but it’s good to be back in Alkarra!

Sweet Bridge Novella

This was a pleasant short story about Bianca's recovery. Some of the chapters are a little less action packed than normal for Bianca, but recovering is not fun (she was just trounced by the removal of god magic)! The reconnections with Bianca's friends and family are very sweet. Bianca feels a little guilty that she almost left it all behind to stay in Alaysia, but by the end she is feeling a lot better and ready to tackle a new adventure!

Welcome Home!

I love this novella so much! Can I take a moment to gush about what a beautiful story it is?! All your questions from Derek and The Forgotten Gods will be answered here. But true to Katie form, some new ones will arise. What's brewing in the Northern Network? What's going to happen in the south? How do they all prepare for war? There are some wonderful heartfelt scenes and fences mended. When you have finished this book you will be able to let out that sigh of contentment - for now. The biggest adventure is coming soon.

Kim Jones

This book is everything you would hope it would be. Many questions are answered, tears are shed, and cheers are shouted. Katie knew what she was doing to have this available as soon as we finished The Forgotten Gods. Pay attention to the unspoken words, there’s so much in this book, you’ll love Letum Woods even more. Bravo Katie!
