"Jinian Footseer", "Dervish Daughter", and "Jinian Star-Eye" were all published in "The End of the Game." This is a sequel to "The True Game" and tells the story of Jinian, who appeared in the third story of that book, "Wizard's Eleven".
Jinian has been traveling and exploring with Peter, Queynt, and Chance following the battle at the end of "Wizard's Eleven" and "Jinian Footseer". Tattered and torn by her three-year oath of celibacy, she nevertheless continues with the group, hoping to find out about Dream Miner and Storm Grower and learn why they want her dead. The group encounters storm wreckage, yellow death crystals, and old enemies of Peter, which lead them ever closer to their goal.
Ultimately, Jinian deals with Dream Miner and Storm Grower, who have been tormenting the world these past centuries and been motivating forces behind certain events in "The True Game.&qu! ot; Unfortunately, in the process, she learns something ever worse about the world itself, known as Lom.
What was it really about the shadow? Was there supposed to be a shadowmaster somewhere? How did Jinian and the group manage to avoid it when it was everywhere at night? When the humans all huddled in the wagon when the shadow lay over everything, what happened to the birds? What happened to Jinian whenever she had to sleep all night out in the open?
We learn that Huld was moved by Dream Miner and Storm Grower to bring the legion of bones to the Wastes of Bleer; Huld wouldn't have done that otherwise. Could it be possible that Huld in himself was the honorable, decent Gamesman he was thought to be in the first story of "The True Game"? But then he came under the influence of the crystals and was corrupted and controlled by them. I don't know; it's interesting to speculate.
