Soman Chainani delivers action, adventure, laughter, romance, and more twists than ever before in this extraordinary chapter of his epic series.
At the story's beginning, we see the two couples, each in different worlds, Rafal and Sophie & Agatha and Tedros. We discover that, upon returning home to Gavaldon, Agatha realizes that her prince is in mortal danger, and she is too. After traveling up Graves Hill, Agatha's mother treats Tedros' wounds from book 2, and reveals to Agatha that she has been branded a witch, with a bounty on her head. After enduring each others presence in the cramped house for a while, Agatha and Tedros get caught by an elder guard, who realized that Callis was stealing eggs for them. On the way to the execution pyre, Agatha understands that Callis and Stefan were made guards by the elders, as a punishment for their children. The Elders forced Stefan to be a guard by making him choose between Sophie and his new family. Right before the flames ignite beneath Agatha, Callis stabs out a glowing green finger an repels the fire into a glowing green ring around the guards, and she frees Agatha and Tedros, instructing them to flee to a swan marked gravestone. They obey, although Agatha turns around and sees guards kill her mother. Pursued by the same men, Agatha and Tedros find the right grave at the last moment and are snatched into it. In the grave is Princess Uma, who tells of their predicament. Old villains raised from the dead, Sophie accepting Rafal's love, and the mysterious League of Thirteen. We also see the grave of Vanessa, Sophie's mother, oin Necro ridge. After saving them from a wolf and giant with her animal talents, Uma leads Agatha and her prince to the "league of 13." On the way, they pass through Foxwood, and Snow White's cottage, where the group of 3 finds Snow White and her dwarves brutally murdered by the reincarnated Evil Queen. After venturing alone into the cottage to find the princess, Agatha is attacked by the Evil Queen, barely escaping with her life before Tedros found her, bloody and bruised. However, as Tedros yells ate her, the couple hear a scream from outside, the screams of princess Uma, being petrified by the Evil queen. Picking her up and following a rabbit, the ragtag group entered the headquarters of the League of 13, located in a dark cave. There they find Yuba the gnome- berating them for their rashness- as well as a group of old, wrinkled strangers. Yuba continues the surprises by telling that the real help would come from the 13th member- Merlin. Seeing Merlin, Tedros passes out and, upon waking, is enraged that Merlin left him, but quickly forgives the queer sorcerer. Later Tedros asks Merlin where he had been the entire time he was gone.
This will be finished later... I apologize, if this were more in depth I'd be here all day.
