Worse, the Dark Gods give her an ultimatum...and Ami is in no position to refuse.</spoiler>

"I- I tried everything I could think of," she said reluctantly. "I even managed to create a cure of my own, but the dark gods just improved their plague and made all my work worthless."

Fortunately, Jadeite hasn't arrived while Ami is under attack, when he might be tempted to turn on her. For the moment, Ami is the top dog, pouncing on another vulnerable Keeper like a hyena, harassing Arachne, sailing to the Avatar Islands, and training for her duel. Not much happens, mainly it just shows off how disoriented Jadeite is by the change in Ami.</spoiler>

"You. I remember you," the monster suddenly snarled, making the puddles on the ground vibrate with its rumbling voice.

After losing twice, a third defeat will mean her death. To escape eternal damnation...Ami may have to make a deal with the devil. <spoiler>Ami learns to create a dungeon heart the Dark Gods can't touch! But then nothing goes Ami's way. First her experiment causes a magical accident that forces her to sacrifice a dungeon heart. Then one of the many enemies she's made destroys another dungeon heart...banishing Ami to the Dark Realm and allowing Azzathra to make her face his test.</spoiler>

Please don't notice me, she pleaded silently.

Ami may be done with her past, but her past isn't done with her. While Ami is trying to start from scratch with her new Azzathra-proof dungeon heart, two of Azzathra's Keepers have her in their crosshairs. Worse, the fairies Ami imprisoned to protect herself aren't going to let it go with an "I'm sorry"...and they can bend the ear of a King...a King rich enough to hire bounty hunters. But Ami is looking for a rematch of her own --- with Emperor Zarekos. For that, Ami needs to build one more dungeon. But not a hideout. A warship.

But Ami's secret gem furnaces keep her from running out of wealth...forcing Arachne to put up her two most powerful minions as stakes. Even then, Arachne's big plan lowers Ami's defenses but doesn't seem to allow for an actual attack on Ami's own dungeon heart...<spoiler>until Arachne brings in Keeper Alphel, a servant of Azzathra.</spoiler>

The crawlers were covering the ground with thick, gluey webbing that would spell doom to any rats she sent to reclaim the area. An annoying and efficient tactic.
The red-pulsing dungeon heart smashed into the side of the crater and shattered into glittering shards that followed the rest of the avalanche down into the lake of lava, accompanied by terrified howl.

With the death of Nero, Ami gains a Reaper, but she's losing the Islander trolls. Ami thinks she has time to breathe, but she's been ignoring Wemos, Zarekos' most bloodthirsty servant, who took over the remains of Zarekos' decapitated empire. Wemos raided the Underworld for materiel, and they're blaming Ami for killing Zarekos and letting Wemos off his leash. Their retribution will scour the continent if Ami doesn't disarm them politically by killing Wemos herself, soon. As if that's not enough of an incentive, Wemos has finally seized Zarekos' temple, where Zarekos kept his vial of Ami's blood. <spoiler>But Wemos gets more than he bargained for: Zarekos is not quite dead yet. Zarekos offers Ami knowledge in exchange for helping him return. Ami may soon wish she had taken that deal.</spoiler>

"Mercury! Destroy her, or she will destroy us both!"
"Serve me well, however, and I may even share some secrets."
