Princess Nightshade and her friends are at it again, this time accepting a desperate plea for help. Hannah, retired from being a war-daughter, has been teaching Saraly all she knows. Fuzbud is well on his way to becoming a wizard with Wizard Gloxnix's help. With Intessa, the unicorn, they all embark on a voyage across two seas that could end in disaster.
Will friends like Intessa and Hepzibannah, the dragon, be able to help? And how can they outwit an evil old Vizier who has managed to rule many kings for too many years? As always, however, it is the unexpected that really tests their hearts, their strengths, and their friendship. The future of three kingdoms may be resolved by their success, or failure.
