Mermaids attack ships sailing to port. A magical plague caused by malevolent fae grips the countryside. The capital city of Dere is completely cut off from the rest of the kingdom. And Queen Dagmar is pregnant with her first child-and the heir to both the thrones of Niune and of the Faerie Realm. Cut off from their friends and allies, Pook and Alex must battle their way across a kingdom besieged by forces most folk no longer even believe to be real. Will they survive long enough to discover what has brought on a war between Faerie and the mortal world? Or will the answers they seek come at too high a price?
