This sequel to The Wizard s Dog proved to be just as entertaining Gale has taken the story of Merlin, Arthur, Morgana, and Camelot and turned it on it s head with thoroughly enjoyable results Nosewise, the talking, magical dog, and his pack, Merlin, Arthur, and Morgana, think the worst is over after defeating Oberon on the island of Avalon But when they return to Avalon after gathering some supplies they discover their fae friend Nivian dead as a result of the worm sprites that Oberon created, that they had thought were dead Nosewise being an extremely loyal companion won t accept that there is nothing he can do to help his friend After Oberon, who is dying himself, tells them that the only way to bring Nivian back is to find the Grail of life with it s life bringing water, Nosewise is determined to do whatever it takes to find it But traversing the land of the fae and confronting Queen Mab, sovereign of dreams, proves to be much difficult than he ever imagined Especially once Queen Mab gains control of Merlin, Arthur, and Mo
