They were then forced to co-operate with Sengar, Onrack, and several other T'lan Imass in order to escape the shattered Warren. This ritual allowed the T'lan Imass to kill the demon posing as Osserc.
They recovered in Seven Cities and were able to track down the intruders to the Bonehunters camped outside Raraku's centre: Gesler, Stormy and Truth. However, after a near fatal encounter with Malazan sappers, they elected to retreat to their own Warren.
