"[Odo] writes measured, self-delighting prose, with witty dialogue, successful jokes, surprises, and a happy sprinkling of satire and a gently didactic wishfulness about how people should behave better" - "Sunday Times". When Bartlett, Jacques le Grand and Gozo emerge from the Margoulis Caverns into daylight and the scorching heat of the stonefields, little do they realise that they are about to embark on a wonderful adventure. An adventure that takes them from a glorious palace in the City of Sun to the underground depths of the City of Flames. This time a young prince has been kidnapped and it is up to Bartlett and Jacques to find him and reunite him with his family. But nothing is ever as easy as it originally seems, as Bartlett has to persuade two arch enemies to reconcile and overcome centuries of misunderstanding and animosity. A brilliant adventure full of bright and vibrant characters and a plot full of suspense and gentle humour.
