(From the publisher):
Beneath the hills of Wales a band of valiant knights sleeps.
Growing neither old nor weak, the knights slumber until the next call to arms is sounded in the never-ending battle between good and evil. When that day comes, the wizard Cadellin will use the Weirdstone to rouse the knights and they will go forth against Nastrond, the spirit of evil.
But the Weirdstone has vanished.
And without the stone, the malice of Nastrond will run unchecked, all goodness falling before it, fear and hatred ruling the world...
...Unless Colin and Susan - two children vacationing in the area - can find the stone first. But even if they do find it, between them and the wizard stand all manner of wicked creatures - creatures who will stop at nothing to keep the stone from being returned to its rightful owner.
