Overview

The heroes of Vastia are back in action.

Peace has finally returned to Vastia. The familiars Aldwyn, Skylar, and Gilbert have defeated the evil Paksahara, and the Council is throwing Queen Loranella a birthday party to celebrate. But when the queen falls victim to a terrible curse, the familiars find themselves the prime suspects.

Narrowly escaping the palace dungeons, Aldwyn, Skylar, and Gilbert set out on a quest to prove their innocence and find a cure for the queen. Their journey will reunite them with old friends and even older enemies, and it will take them from the far fields of Vastia to the magical Dreamworld. But nothing can prepare them for the puzzles and perils that await them there.

With all the action, humor, and friendship that have made the familiars so well loved, plus a mystery that will take all their wits to unravel, palace of dreams is the familiars' most thrilling adventure yet.

Gr 4–7—Their reputation as heroes is short-lived for the Prophesized Three-cat Aldwyn, blue jay Skylar, and tree frog Gilbert-when they are suspected of poisoning Queen Loranella and promptly sent to the dungeon. After a daring escape, the familiars quickly go from being Vastia's most celebrated to its most wanted. Intent on clearing their names and saving Loranella's life, the three embark on an adventuresome journey to find a magical spell before it's too late. Not knowing who framed them or why, the friends travel great distances in disguise, encountering magical creatures and tricky obstacles along the way. Meanwhile, the queen is stuck in the Wander, between this life and the Tomorrowlife. The trio must enter the Dreamworld and hope to emerge alive with the lifesaving spell. Fans of the series will enjoy this installment that ends in a cliffhanger. As a movie is rumored to be in development, fantasy fans will want to get up to date on the plight of Aldwyn, Skylar, and Gilbert before its release.—Michele Shaw, Quail Run Elementary School, San Ramon, CA
