The town of Briarghast pays close attention to the observances of All Hallows' Eve. For a century or more they’ve lit the lanterns without fail as the sun descends. When Aisling asks her grandmother why they never let the candles burn low, why someone must always keep the night’s watch until dawn, her grandmother tells her it’s to ensure that only their loved ones find their way home on All Hallows' Eve.
