Because he can see in the dark, Loric's duty is to guide the Rake through the treacherous wilderness at night.Cymbril and Loric secretly join forces to plan their escape--soon the two friends thread their way through a series of increasing dangers, encountering an enchanted market and deadly monsters as their one chance for freedom draws nearer.
