The Gathering Edit
The Gathering is the first of the two books in 2.7- Spiros The Ghost Phoenix.
Tom and Elenna get a message from Wizard Aduro- Uncle Henry and Aunt Maria are gone! Aduro tells Tom how to find them- Spiros! This Beast has the gift of all sight- and could easily find them. But there's a problem. Spiros hasn't been seen in centuries! He's a ghost now, too! Tom, Elenna, Silver and Storm call on the beasts Ferno The Fire Dragon, Arcta The Mountain Giant, Epos The Flame Bird and Tagus The Horse Man for help- but they couldn't find Spiros. Then Elenna has an idea- bring the Beasts together! Maybe they could summon Spiros! First they summon Sepron The Sea Serpent, before summoning Ferno The Fire Dragon, Arcta The Mountain Giant, Nanook The Snow Monster, Epos The Flame Bird and Tagus The Horse Man! This summons Spiros, and Tom and Elenna sit on Epos as Epos follows Spiros through the sky. But they are ambushed by Nawdren The Black Phoenix and Sethrina- the sister of the cold hearted Seth. Tom and Sethrina duel in the sky, while Epos and Nawdren attack eachother. then Sethrina tells Tom the truth- Nawdren is Spiros' body! Elenna falls off Epos, and Tom and Epos follow her in hot pursuit to save her.
The story continues in 2.72- Rebirth.
