A page-turning story that moves between the modern world of a teenager and a dangerous world where mythical legends live.
Two years have passed since Elayne returned from the magical world behind the unicorn tapestries in the Cloisters Museum of New York, and things finally seem to be settling down. But when reports start coming in on the news about an unusual two-headed snake that was caught in the city's sewers, Elayne knows that the world of Goloth is not quite ready to let her go yet.

The prospect of romance emerges from the most unexpected of places. Thrust into this world of danger and action - one in which a dragon holds terrifying power - Elayne must join forces with old enemies and journey far to find the great unicorn Moonspill if she is to have any thope of saving Goloth - and her father - from total destruction.
