That baby is of an age for Euberacon to demand remittance. Refusing to be a pawn, a desperate, Risa flees her home though she believes no place is safe for her. Still with her skills, Risa hopes she can elude the abomination until he becomes wary of chasing after her. When she meets Sir Gawain on his way home to warn King Arthur of a plot to destroy his realm, Risa realizes that Camelot is the ideal locale to avoid Euberacon. However, Euberacon casts his lure to catch his frightened prey even as he employs spells to remove the King and destroy his Knights of the Round Table. Only Risa fighting the spell might save the kingdom, its monarch, and herself from wickedness with no scruples.
