Two years have passed since Curdie uncovered the goblins’ plot to kidnap the Princess. Now the king is deathly ill and a new threat is lurking inside the palace walls.
Join the Miner's son and an unlikely companion as they embark on a mission to save Princess Irene and her father from the plot to usurp the kingdom.
"In the first book, although offered a chance to go off with the King into another part of the country, Curdie chose to stay at home with his father and mother. Dear reader, I wonder what you would choose? Do you like the idea of staying close to home and family or are you hoping for a chance someday to go off to some faraway place?" ~ Timothy Larsen, Introduction
