After completing her first year of learning magic at Whitehall School, Emily accepts an invitation from Princess Alassa to accompany her on her progress back to her home country of Zangaria, where the princess may meet her future husband. For Emily, it is a chance to relax and explore a world very different to Earth, meet new people and come to terms with her reputation in the Nameless
World. And yet, as she sees more of the countries surrounding Whitehall, she feels more and more out of place. Even her friends are strange to her eyes.
But dark forces are at work, plotting to capture the Princess, take power in Zangeria ... and undo all of Emily's work. As all hell breaks loose, Emily may be all that stands between Zangaria and a return to the dark ages of brute force.
