At their first riding lesson Sesame and Maddy are watching Silver being re-shod, when they're whisked back to Karisma to hunt for another magical charm. But they're up against Zorgan the sorcerer and his wicked pixie puppets, Nix and Dina. Treacherous Zorgan has raised the spirit of the dragon Agapogo who guards the fabled silver pool. Now the pool has dried up, there's no more silver and the Silversmith and Queen Charm are in despair.
Sesame and Maddy are on holiday in Cornwall when they're whisked to Lantern Hill in Karisma to meet the third gatekeeper, Firebird. The girls arrive to find the spirit of the great dragon, Agapogo, Guardian of the Silver Pool seeking revenge on Zorgan, the sorcerer. A plague of fire-breathing drakons is causing havoc. They must also face Morbrecia, Queen Charm's older sister and bitter rival. There are still 11 precious charms missing - Morbrecia, Zorgan, Ses and Maddy all want to be the first to find them.
When Charm became Queen of Karisma, the Silversmith made her a precious gift. A bracelet. On it are fastened 13 silver amulets, called 'charms' in honour of the new queen.

And so it was until Zorgan, the evil magician, stole the bracelet and scattered the charms far and wide. Then there was chaos!
