Repercussions ended with victory, at a cost. A Sentinel is dead, Megaton lies grievously injured, and Astra is no longer a member of the Sentinels, America’s premier cape-team. Beyond the personal consequences, both the US and Europe must recover from crippling attacks. Now Astra and her Joyeuse Guard must find their footing in the world after the Chicago and Brussels Attacks. Mal deals with an unexpected complication to his recovery. A journalist is invited to ride along with the new team. Ozma and the rest pursue their campaign to liberate Oz. Santa Claus comes to all the towns. Shell and Shelly engage in a little side-conspiracy to ensure a happier ending than history would allow. And Hope just wants to get married. Again.
