Bearing the scars of defeat, Erik must now race to protect his home from the powerful enemies that have declared war on his family. Outnumbered and outmatched, he must hold off the advancing horde until help arrives. To fail would bring the destruction of the Middle Kingdom, and all that he holds dear.
Meanwhile, Al must finally deal with his brother Threnton, king of the dwarves of Roegudok Hall, if he is to have any chance to restore the Keeper of Secrets and help Erik survive the impending onslaught. Each night brings with it powerful new foes that flock to the warlocks' army as the tides of darkness sweep through the land, yet few allies stand with Erik and his friends. They will have to find a way to band together if they are to have any chance of keeping the enemy from regaining Nagar's Secret.
