In the second novel in the Rook Barkwater sequence, the young knight librarian attempts to stop the dark might of the Most High Academe. High in the crumbling Palace of Statues, oily Vox Verlix – the Most High Academe in name, but really no more than a lowly prisoner – is brewing a terrible plot to take over power in Edgeworld once again. Rook stumbles upon the truth when he is taken captive and forced to work for Vox. Can Rook foil Vox’s plan and save the lives of his librarian colleagues?
