But Janner gets more excitement than he bargained for when a trip to town goes awry and he and his siblings end up with a posse of Fangs at their heels! Things go from bad to worse when a search for buried treasure reveals a treasure hoard that could cost Janner and Tink their fingers… if not their very lives. And from worse, things quickly approach the realm of nightmere, when the ghost of Brimney Stupe awakes, and the Fangs close in, and the Nameless Evil named Gnag the Nameless brings his search for the lost jewels of Anneria to Skree.
Janner struggles to adjust to his newfound position as the Throne Warden and protect his family while fending off Fangs, ‘scaping from Stranders, dodging enemies in Dugtown, running from Ragmen, and the fearsome ferocity of the Fork! Factory! But even more dangerous than the perils of the road, is the threat of division with his own family! Can their hearts remain true to one another in the face of such difficulties?
Each day presents new challenges as he and his siblings adjust to life in the Hollows. What is a Throne Warden to do when he doesn’t want to be the Throne Warden? And how does he protect a King who doesn’t want to be the King? Bullying classmates are the least of Janner’s troubles, however, for whispers of a monster in the Hollows threaten to bring the fear of the Fangs back into their new life.
