After every defeat, Lord Shambles returns stronger than before, and more determined to punish humanity. Having crushed all resistance on magical Iltior, he moves the war to Earth, an Earth that is on the verge of collapse.
Unfortunately, Earth's weapons are useless against this enemy. Only Runcible Jones can stop him, though it's an impossible battle - a fourteen-year-old boy against the most terrible sorcerer on two worlds. Runcie will need every bit of his courage and cunning to save Earth.
And this time, someone close to him is going to die.
