It’s not easy to be a hero when your bum is the size of an airship and you’re bobbing around the ceiling, mocked by angry dwarves.
Mellie has stolen the unluckiest charm in Wychwold and can’t get rid of it. Pook has an insane plan to rescue the Collected children. The demons Nuckl, Spleen and Tonsil are after Ike’s innards. And the Fey Queen, Emajicka, is coming to tear out his worst nightmare.
Only Ike can save Grimmery. But first he has to win a contest with a lying, cheating scoundrel – the desperate dwarf, Con Glomryt.
