When a giant black tower appears on EmeraldClan territory, Moonshimmer - a SapphireClan cat - has an idea to invite cats from all the clans to go on a patrol to it. Sneezenose, along with Rockwatcher, are the cats from RubyClan that go on the patrol. Moonshimmer believes that by going there they will finally be able to stop Phantom, Chocolaterain, Lilyblossom, and Ancient. By the time the reach the tower, it is almost moonhigh. The tower's doors open, and 'zombie-zombie' Jasminedung greets them, welcoming them to her castle; she is quickly killed by Rockwatcher. The castle is very well decorated and furnished, with a statue of a cat that looks like Jasminedung in the center of the entrance hallway.
The patrol travels up a long flight of stairs into the attic, where it is very dark. Jasminedung's disembodied voice tells them they will be stuck there, then closes and locks the door. When Sneezenose hears the key clicking, she immediately realizes what is happening and exclaims that they are trapped. While the cats contemplate a way to escape, Sunsetshine has his/her kits; two toms and two she-cats. After the birth, Gazingflight spots some paracute backpacks, and the cats use them to get safely out the window. Sunsetshine names his/her kits, and the cats, including Sneezenose, disperse to their clans.
