Now a full-fledged Ranger, Will's assigned a special mission with his friend Alyss: working undercover as a jongleur, he's to investigate reports of a sorcerer hexing the lord of a strategically important northern castle. A new grudge-holding acquaintance threatens Will's and Alyss's cover. The series' emphasis on rationality and out-thinking one's enemies will gratify its target audience.
