Branwen thought her previous adventure to the North Mountain had been her last—after all, Captain Gavel's fortress had collapsed after she and the three others rescued the necessary crowns. She thought that she'd get to see Edyth, Quintin and Silas at the annual Tournament of Warriors for only a few days each year. But most of all, she didn't expected to ever go beyond the North Mountain . . . and that's exactly what she does. When the young princess goes missing during the last night of the Tournament, the king and queen turn to the four faithful heroes to rescue the kidnapped child. And that’s how Branwen finds herself caught up in yet another once-in-a-lifetime journey, headed north—this time, beyond the mountain.
