About the Book

In this sequel to The Castle in the Attic, William returns, through his toy castle, to a medieval land for more adventure.

William is turning twelve and he’s pretty sure that Jason is still his best friend. But things have changed in the last year, and William’s not certain where he stands. Then a magic token takes the boys back to the Middle Ages. There William can show Jason a place and time where knights still joust and fools do tricks—and where William was once a hero.

Soon after they arrive, the two boys sense danger. What does an old woman’s dying prophecy really mean? Why are there bones floating in the river? William must join forces with the mysterious Gudrin. Together thy must face an evil force intent on the destruction of the world—before it’s too late.
