Salvation comes from the Summer Queen, who asks her to fetch a magic artifact that will determine the winner of the eternal war between the Courts in exchange for the Summer Court’s protection. If Riley can bring this artifact back, the Summer Court will extend its protection to Riley and her friends and family, keeping them safe from the icy touch of Winter.
