When the protective shield of the glade is breached, they are forced to separate. Murray heads out in search of an unknown beast, armed with nothing but his courage and the magic of his new friends. Apple Blossom stays behind and faces her own challenge — hide everyone! As the fate of the secret glade unfolds, the gnomes each wrestle with secrets of their own. Ones that will change their future forever. What if Murray finds more than he expects? What if the beast isn’t their biggest problem? And…What if the red plank door reveals the biggest secret of all?
