From the author of Sky Raiders, magic and danger abound in the second book in a series of “fanciful, action-packed adventure” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fablehaven and Beyonders series.
Cole Randolph never meant to come to The Outskirts, but when his friends were kidnapped on Halloween he had to try and save them. Now he’s trapped in a world that lies between wakefulness and dreaming, reality and imagination, life and death.
Cole’s search for his friends has led him to Elloweer, another of the five kingdoms that make up The Outskirts. He’s accompanied by Mira, Twitch, and Jace—new friends he’s met here in the Outskirts who each have their own important missions.
The group is following news that Mira’s sister, Honor, could be in danger. However, Cole and Mira are soon the ones facing direct threat, and must resort to a fascinating new kind of magic to protect themselves. Their journey brings them across familiar faces—some more welcome than others—until their paths ultimately cross with the infamous man known throughout Elloweer as the “Rogue Knight.”
Will he turn out to be an unstoppable enemy, or a key ally?
Every move is filled with danger as Cole and his new friends try and outwit the High King, who will stop at nothing to regain what he has lost.
