In this second adventure Will still lives at the Abbey with Brother Snail, a kind monk who tends the gardens. He also has two special friends, a warrior fay called Shadlock who does work around the Abbey just to be near Will and protect him, and a hobgoblin called Brother Walter - a small creature that can ride on Will’s shoulder and senses when danger is near.

The hob climbed down from the tree and stood beside Will, his face sharp with anxiety. “Something bad is coming,” he whispered. Will crouched down beside him. “Is it the king?” “No,” the hob said, edging a little closer to him, “Not the king. Something much, much worse than him.” “And it’s in the forest?” The hob nodded. “It’s close by, maybe in the forest, maybe here in the brothermen’s stone place. I don’t know for sure, but I can feel it.” (page 3)

Walter is right, something strange IS going on. The church’s wall has a huge crack in it that is growing wider every day – like a silent, slow earthquake is shaking the Abbey from below. The monks begin to report feeling a presence or something unknown hiding in the shadows as well as haunting dreams – nightmares. There HAS been something hidden deep under the church and the monks have inadvertantly let it loose – a demon even the fay fear.
