The second arc begins with Hannah and Regan pursuing the remaining Chimera. Regan is opposed to it, but then she begins to hear voices: she has inherited the fallen Chimera Manny's auditory gift. But when Hannah kills John-Boy, his gift goes to Vanessa instead, strengthening the Chimera...and then she takes Cara's power as well (she had heard one of Manny's last messages, which mentioned a sacrifice). So, there is a Highlander-style "there can be only one" theme developing. Vanessa calls Hannah and Regan back to the town of Kingsly, where the Chimera first emerged and killed Hannah's family. Their conflict does not settle anything, but it looks as though the third collection will bring the story to its conclusion.
