An Elondrian ambassador and his wife are kidnapped by the overlord of Cylmar, and Ayrion finds himself being whisked away in the middle of the night to save them.
Not even given the chance to tell his tribe that he is being sent on a secret mission, Ayrion and Room Eleven find themselves being forced to sneak into the kingdom of Cylmar in hopes of rescuing the ambassador and his wife.
To make matters worse, Dakaran, the crown prince, decides to join their team. Now, Ayrion must divide his attention between completing his mission and making sure the prince isn't put into harm's way.
Unfortunately, as Ayrion's luck usually hold up, nothing goes according to plan. With this being Ayrion's first time to lead a mission, he doesn't want to fail, but the deeper into enemy territory they get, the more deadly it becomes.
Warning:There are a couple darker scenes in this book from the previous four as Ayrion now reaches his late teens.
