{Synopsis} –He’d bonded with the child. It was foretold, and so it would be.

Black Ledge is inhabited again, but not everyone in the Realm is pleased. As the Driscolls settle into their new home they meet magical Beings, discover secrets, and exasperate the Elven Guard. They’re having a great time.

Charm turns to alarm when they meet Doris, the Acadian Water Witch, who's removed the Alabaster Chalice from its watery grave. The Noctivagi, drawn by the artifact's Water Magyk, seek the Chalice for their own nefarious purpose, and mayhem ensues.

Eleanor, Rob, Jack, and Flora fight time and tide to return the Alabaster Chalice to the Undine Prince before the darkness steals it.

{My Thoughts} – Eleanor, Jack, Rob and Flora Discoll set off on another wonderfully written adventure in the “realm.” The children are faced with trying to solve the mystery of what happened to the Alabaster Chalice and why the Noctivagi are so determined to start a war in order to get their hands on it. Eleanor seems to be the child that is favored the most within the pages of this book. She appears to be special and gifted in many ways. Do to her having these particular gifts Gunnr a Night Elf and Camedon the Keeper of the Realm have taken an interest in her. They have decided it is their moral obligations to help her embrace her gifts and to understand as well as fine tune them.

Since Eleanor is getting so much attention it seems to have caused some sibling rivalry between her Jack and Rob. In the end though they all work it out because they all have a common goal. They want to know what will happen, they want to help and they want to learn as much as they can about the Realm. It is however, Eleanor that figured out the common links between the missing Chalice and the other characters within the book. This is definitely a must read book for anyone that has read the first book in the series and for anyone that is interested in reading about characters such as dwarves, elves and other beings of the sort.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
