Fleeing from the ruins of Undertown, Rook Barkwater and his colleagues - the librarian knights, Felix Lodd and his banderbear friends - must lead the escaping population to a new life in the Free Glades. But perils aplenty are ahead for the crowd - not to mention some goblins with plans of their own - This is a dramatic and exciting conclusion to the Rook Barkwater sequence that takes the reader on a thrilling journey across the Edgeworld.

Undertown is no more, New Sanctaphrax has been destroyed and the Mire has all but been washed away – life on The Edge has changed drastically and those who have survived have to make their way to the Free Glades at the heart of the Deepwoods. But the journey is arduous, and there are those whose ambitions lie in enslaving the new Freegladers. Rook will face his biggest challenge yet as he fights for freedom and uncovers the truth of his mysterious past. Both compelling and inspiring, this is a fitting end to the Rook Trilogy.
