It has been almost a month since the tragic events at the Lighthouse of Pendragon. Lord Asadan has regained his full power and the war has now begun.



Arthur Noble has left the Ministry and travelled far to his parents home of Longburrow. A fateful decision which sets him upon a quest to find the last of the Dream Spheres.
