The final book in The Hollow Kingdom trilogy recounts the story of Kate and Marak's son, Catspaw, and his bride-to-be. The goblin king's bride must be one who will help insure the continuation of the goblin race. She may not be a goblin, but a human or an elf, and the more magical power she has, the better. Wedding preparations come to a skidding halt when a band of elves show up and lay claim to some land within Catspaws kingdom. After discovering an elven girl with great magical potential, Catspaw agrees to give them the land in exchange for an elven bride. What happens to his human bride after she is cast aside and goes to the elves? War! This book is a more traditional look at elves and has some great moments, but I didn't like it nearly as much as the first book in the trilogy.
