into the mix. But, the last person she expects to be her travelling
companion and partner in crime is the Riddler.
collection goes off on bizarre slants every now and then,
but there is a good reasons for all the little diversions...
as soon becomes apparent. Why does Kyle keep having weird
dreams and doing things totally out of character - like throwing
herself at the Riddler?
also starts to unearth something about her past - and slowly
stars to unravel who her parents were. But will the truth
be too much for her?
