The Bone Season[]

Kathryn burns Liss' tarot cards, which is her numen. As a result, Liss begins to lose her aura and almost becomes an amaurotic. Warden gives Liss his last dose of amaranth to bring Liss out of spirit shock. Warden and Paige are able to find her a new set of tarot cards just in time. Liss reads Paige's cards using the ellipse spread.
