When we last saw Thomas and Li-Ming… Lady Hallow took the Magic Feather and the Fundamental Orders, but Li-Ming stole it just in time before Lady Hallow could get away. Lady Hallow then used magic to turn Thomas into a cat, as Li-Ming used similar magic to turn Lady Hallow into a frog! Li- Ming stood alone in the castle as she watched the Fundamental Orders explode and break into pieces.
