Since we last saw Karic of Cricket’s Glen things have gone well, with him finally accepting his destiny as the chosen one and even finding time for a little romance with Aquila. But things are about to take a turn to the dark as Glass, Oeming and Santos begin the build towards their climactic finale. Who will prosper, who will fall and, knowing their fondness for mice mortality, who will even survive?! So we got in touch with Bryan and Michael to find out.
