The word is out upon the land: Marwen has vanquished the dragon and finds herself heir to the Wizard's staff. But her transformation is not yet complete, and the staff is not yet hers. And danger lurks closer than ever as the staff is sought by another who holds the dreaded power of the Prism Moon.
