As the secret agents of Tale Corps get closer to controlling the Panchatantra storyworlds, Vishnu contemplates the ultimate betrayal. The Panchatantra characters are summoned from their own stories to Council Rock in the center story world of Kathagraha, where their collective future will be decided. But as Leo strives to unite his subjects to face the peril that threatens to overwhelm them, shadows lurk in the forest -- it might already be too late. The Panchatantra heroes face imminent danger but questions still remain: Can Jack really be trusted? Will Vishnu put self-preservation above the needs of his new friends? We'll never tell, but one thing's for sure -- this tale is about to get a lot more... graphic.
