The strangeness of the McGunnegals continues to unfold as Colleen begins to glimpse the latent power of the ancient bloodline that runs true in her veins.
Frederick also has something within him—the poison of the Goblin Phage that threatens to transform him into one of the hideous creatures of the night. He must leave Colleen in this strange land in order to save himself, and to seek the help of a long-dead king back in the world of Men.
Colleen goes on without him, but has again encountered the goblin, Nous, whose life she once saved. She must convince her companions that he is worth befriending. She must trust him to lead them to the Witch’s dungeons, and there help her to free its captives, and hope that he does not betray them all.
High adventure, storms and monsters at sea, creatures of legend and myth, captures and escapes, magic and invention, terrible loss, fool-hearty daring, and a journey toward finding one’s true self all come together in these epic tales.
