Synopsis

'It's a rotten old job being King!' says Dido Twite. Her friend King Simon agrees - his scheming courtiers want to marry him off to a pushy princess, and he has to lead his army against a tribe of invading Wends.

Their only hope is to find a long-lost heir to take Simon's place on the throne of England, with the help of failed witch Malise and her prophesying parrot.

The last book in the series that first introduced Simon as the hero of The Wolves of Willoughby Chase is a helter-skelter of battles, vicious villains and mysterious monsters, packed full of magic and humour. If you don't know the Wolves Chronicles, this gives a wonderful taste of Joan Aiken's fantastic world - and you still have all the rest to discover!
