The second of the Rook Trilogy, in this the Librarians' refuge comes under threat. Their hideaway in the sewers is to be hunted both by the Shryke sisterhood, and by the Goblin warlords who wish to take them as slaves. And Orbis Xaxis, lord of the Guardians of Night, intends another, perhaps even worse fate for them. Surrounded by enemies, can the Librarians escape the city and make their way to the Free Glades?

Well, of course they can. And Rook is of course instrumental in what's going on.

A fairly action-packed trilogy-middle.
