Cadderly, Danica, and the Bouldershoulder brothers, Ivan and Pickel, fight against the evil that threatens the Edificant Library. The evil mage Abilaster has released a powerful curse that will threaten to destroy the Edificant Library, and eventually, the realm. R.A. Salvatore does an admirable job with this adventure, adding mystery and humor, romance and intrigue.
