Publisher's Summary

A new novel from a master of comic fantasy, Tom Holt.

New evil.

Same as the old evil, but with better PR.

Mordak isn't bad as far as goblin kings go, but when someone - or something - starts pumping gold into the human kingdoms, it puts his rule in serious jeopardy. Suddenly he's locked in an arms race with a species whose arms he once considered merely part of a calorie-controlled diet.

Helped by an elf with a background in journalism and a master's degree in being really pleased with herself, Mordak sets out to discover what on Earth (if indeed, that's where he is) is going on. He knows that the truth is out there. If only he could remember where he put it.

Critic Reviews

"This is a must-read for those who grew up in awe of The Phantom Tollbooth ....Holt achieves near-perfection in his new comic fantasy." (Publishers Weekly starred review)
