Emma doesn't have any luck modeling, but is approached by a woman looking for an actress at Mademe Visage's Theatre of Many Faces. She's given a powder for free that most actresses there are said to use, and suddenly finds she is the center of attention as a model. When she returns to the theater, the other members there who somehow all look pale and identical have her watch Mademe Visage stare into an empty book, and suddenly her face is on the page while her head is bare and shows no signs of life, then she touches Emma's face and steals her looks, as she's been doing for years to stay young. Emma sees that everyone else under Mademe's power is too afraid to disobey since they don't want to be cast out into the world where their strange empty faces will find them outcast, or torturing them with the Book of Punishment so they feel pain within the pages. However, she'll need help to fight Mademe and stop her from going after her friend Jessie next.
