FIRST IT WAS A SNAKE. The sacred snakes of Narcisse are being slaughtered by a magical secret society—the Serpent's Chain. Will a deadly duel of snapdragon win the day?

THEN A BEE. The Serpent's Chain hatches another dastardly plan—this time, to steal magical honey from the MiddleGate bees.

AND THEN A FISH. Wil and Sophie end up in cold water thanks to a mysterious woman named Catfysh. Fin by tail, they must save the Palace of the Blazing Star from the Serpent’s Chain.

...ON TO THE WILDS OF ICELAND, where Sophie and Wil almost end up in troll soup!
