In the second book in the Heartland Series, cancer survivor Kit Hansen returns to the land where he became a hero. Little does he know, trouble is brewing in Quagmire, where the Mad Queen Setha is plotting revenge. She will turn the tables on King Harold by sending her two bumbling sons, Myron and Squirt, to spy on him and discover his battle plans. Back in Heartland, Harold is busy planning an invasion of Quagmire. Kit and the two spies stumble right into the thick of it. The battle is fought on Quagmire soil with whips, swords and arrows flying. This includes the whip of Eve, the noble Musicette. Then the lives of both Kit and Harold hang in the balance as Setha's plans take hold. But there's a traitor in her camp and it is he who will defeat the queen at last.
