With peace reigning in the Magic Kingdom at last, Ben Holiday is finally free to lie back and enjoy the finer things in life - like watching his daughter grow, which she does by leaps and bounds. Born a seedling and nourished by soil from Landover, Earth and the fairy mists, Mistaya is a unique child, fully as dazzling as her mother, the sylph, Willow - but fiery and impatient with those who can't keep up with her lightning-fast development. But Ben's idyll is not to last. The dark and pitiless Rydall, king of lands beyond the fairy mists, arrives at the gates of Sterling Silver. His armies are ready to invade if Ben will not accept his challenge: to face and defeat seven different champions of Rydall's choice. And accept he must, for Mistaya has been snatched from her guardians by foul magic and only Rydall holds the key to her fate...

Nightshade seeks revenge through Mistaya for what happened between her and Ben, as the Lady and the Knight when they were imprisoned in the Tangle Box.
Mistaya is not the daughter Ben imagined he would have. She grows at an unpredictable rate, and she?s a genius when it comes to learning, talking, and magic.
An unknown conqueror, (he calls himself a king), throws a gauntlet down and challenges Ben. He claims to have come from beyond the fairy mists, and he demands the unconditional surrender of Landover.
Rydall, king of Marhhull will send seven monsters to battle Ben. Ben has to live through and win all seven battles in order to save his life and his throne.
Questor and Abernathy are saved from an interfering magic, when they are attacked by Nightshade. A result of which is that Abernathy is turned back to a man. He realizes how deeply he wants to be returned back to his all man form. Because now Questor doesn?t think that he can convince him to return to the king?s service. Abernathy will be forced to choose between Landover and himself, and Questor will be stuck out of Landover if Abernathy chooses to stay and live a normal human life.
Mistaya is excited that she can do magic. Nightshade teaches Mistaya how to do magic, while using her too not only fight and defeat her father, but to kill him too.
In the meantime, Ben and Willow desperately search for Mistaya all over Landover, because Rydall has kidnapped her. Following closely behind them are Ben?s seven battles, and he fears becoming the Paladin more and more will destroy his soul and take away his humanity.
