Having escaped the murderous grip of Princess Faegria (for now), Sadie finds herself lost once more. Determined as always, she continues on her journey to find King Orphanos.
On her way, Sadie encounters a mysterious boy named Joseph who tells her of the dangers that await if she is to continue on to her destination. He pulls her into a deep forest against her will and to the tree that can take her back home to Muddlewoods.
But as Sadie protests her need to see King Orphanos, she loses Joseph and finds herself in the grasp of a much more sinister force: Gismania Twylight and the many monsters of the Terrible Stream. Sadie is terrified to learn that she is also being hunted by unumbered and unknown forces from kingdoms all around.
Will Joseph return in time to save her? Will Sadie give up and return home with his help? Or, will she risk everything to find King Orphanos and make her wishes come true?
This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing content that may cause the reader to delve into his or her own land of fantasy…just like Sadie.
