The sequel to the award-winning Where Dragonwoofs Sleep and the Fading Creeps.

As Ben, Avery, and Marcus near their last summer break before high school, a feverish sleep beckons them back to the mysterious dream realm of Meridia.

The three friends haven't returned to Meridia since they stopped the Fading from consuming their magical world. But a new triad of villains threatens the land: The Ghastly Three. Ben, Avery, and Marcus must join forces with a kodkod pirate, translucent elves, and even the Sovereign's former generals if they wish to survive.

Traversing the Lost City of Contraptionists, the Drowned Swamps, and the Undercurrent ruled by the Nightmare Queen herself, they race against the Ghastly Three to stop them from obtaining the World Builder, an artifact that empowers the wielder to reshape Meridia to their wicked desire.

Meanwhile, the real world is threatening to break them apart and thwart their summer plans. With changes unseen and secrets unspoken, will their friendship survive this supreme threat, as well as their transition to Trinity High?
