In Volume II, SONGS OF DEEP GREEN, Jeff and Carl trek to the west coast of Arvalia and sail for Zomar in search of allies. There, deep in the ocean, they meet La’ani and Fiala of the Pelohahani. The desire to linger in the tropics is strong, but their mission is urgent. Sailing to Zomar, they become embroiled in a web of intrigue and civil war. Fighting for their lives, the men risk everything.
Surviving a near death experience in Zomar, Jeff and Carl set sail on their way to Hochberg with new allies and new hope.
On the way they stop at Tonupu to meet with the Pelohahani Chieftan and council. The mood is somber for there are partings, and shortly before they are to sail the great wolf Balko is pursued by a pack of large saurians. Although terrified of the dinosaurs, the men charge into a night-long battle to save their companion.
Jeff works the Gilnora hard on the way north to Hochberg, for he has a strong sense that something is very wrong with his wife, Zimma. He also wonders how she will react to the women on board. Zimma has a volcanic temper.
The way to Hochberg is dogged by a Morlock, the deadliest predator in the ocean. Then, one gray morning following a storm, the Morlock attacks when least expected. A battle to the death ensues, leaving the Gilnora little better than a drifting derelict.
Limping into Hochberg, they are met at the pier by Helwin and Zimma. Zimma is furious with Jeff when she sees one of the women, explodes into fury, shatters a basic tenet of marriage on Aketti, and as a result nearly dies. Determined to be with Zimma, Jeff visits the home she is recovering in. There, with darkness settling, he encounters such death and evil that all living things in the area suffer, wither and die. A servant of Lucifer has come to take Zimma. Gareth and Carl arrive to assist Jeff but all three are not enough to win through.
