Ash Kensington has found her way back to the fantastical realm of Fallenwood, a land across the portals, where dragons, unicorns, and other strange creatures roam. But she has little time for whimsy, and there is much to be done.
With five crystals to destroy, in order to rob the dark lord Malegaunt of his power, her path is set. Fortunately, she has friends, like the sorcerer Will Everett, and the court jester Terces Solario. But one morning, they set out, leaving Ash to herself. She begins a quest with the talking cat, Greymalkin, and her wyvern, Slick. But attempting to take Slick home, she meets up with the handsome dragon-slayer, Draeon.
Draeon ushers Ash from the cold confines of the house in the deep woods, into the camp of his fire performer friends, a land of eternal summer, as he promises to help her find her lost friends. Ash becomes unsure about Draeon, as they go along – is he all that he seems? And will she find her friends, and destroy the crystals, so that she can challenge the dark lord Malegaunt?
