Mel continues her double life imprisoned within the castle of Acidulous, but now she is not alone: Satorin has been lured there by the beautiful and seductive squelp Satoran. Although Mel's powers are growing, will they be enough to free her and Satorin from Uro's ever-tightening trap?
Meanwhile, Doug, Jim, and Naomi must confront monsters of their own making that rise from Xandan Lake's waters, illusory demons embodying their greatest fears and hopes. As Xandan Island collapses around them, they risk perishing along with Irenu, Butabo, and half the army of the Turtle Realm. Only with the miraculous arrival of the Aqami's warship does their escape seem possible.
