A series of unexpected events lead Lobías to accept the travelers’ invitation to accompany them.His confusing journey through the mist is full of spectral encounters, until Ballaby, By appears. This girl claims to have seen Lobías in dreams and has come to find him with the mission of taking him back to the Homa Tree. But what the expedition finds on the other side of the fog is as strange as it is terrible: a world at war where entire villages flee from an army that arrives from the north and advances, devastating everything.The Way of the Bees tells the story of a trip, but also that of a war between sinister forces. For Lobías Rumin it will mean the encounter with a destiny that he had never imagined, an adventure that will change his life forever.
