What's going on?
Puckett is eighteen now and still wondering about the fear,
anguish, and destruction humans allow on their planet. He's been summoned back to Orr, unaware that he's a major player in the game of a devastating adversary.
The reason for the summons is deliberately hidden, but a visit to the Eight Bells Inn and a frightening and deadly encounter in the forests of Pottles Patch soon make it clear. Puck and his brave group are separated, and their task takes them through the perilous Soggy Downs,
the great Festival in Wackerbarth,
the magical city of Dragoslava,
the horrors of Dawn's Perch,
and unexpectedly . . . to the deadliest game of all.
