While Andromeda is being held captive, yet with the freedom to walk the halls of Lijuan's citadel, she marvels at Suyin's artwork and the design of the building itself. Andromeda encounters her in her room, sketchbook in hand, led there by soft humming, and befriends her.  Naasir helps her escape with Andromeda. One wing had been revered that morning, so Naassir had to rebreak and bind there other wing before she could travel. She eventually passed out on the journey. Jason took her off their hands and brought her to Amanat. Keir reported that Suyin had fallen into Anshara—the healing trance that Angels go into when badly injured due to having her wings severed repeatedly.
- “I was given the choice to Sleep or to die. And in this, I was . . . lucky, for others who helped build this citadel and thus knew its secrets, were all executed.” Sorrow in every part of her as she flipped a page and began to sketch again. “I chose to Sleep, but I wake every few hundred years to see if this prison I built has fallen and I can fly to freedom.” The quiet horror of her pain made Andromeda’s eyes sting. “Yet each time I wake, my aunt is more powerful, more a nightmare.” — 
- Turning to pin her with those penetrating green eyes, Avi took his time to reply, but when he did, his tone was gentler. “Keir says it is the best thing for her. Her physical wounds will heal, and when she wakes, she’ll do so in a city where she was often a treasured guest before her imprisonment.” An unexpected touch on Andromeda’s hair, as a father might do to a child. “Have no fear, young one, Suyin has friends here who will protect her and help her heal wounds not so visible.” — Avi & Andromeda
- “It appears immortals can die of sadness and loneliness, of an existence without hope. I never knew that.” ~ Isabel 
- "Caliane says it is a kind of willing the self to end. It takes a long time, but Suyin has had millennia. She probably wouldn’t have woken from her next Sleep.” ~ Isabel
