(From the publisher):
When Bryn returns to the village that reared him, he and his friends have to use the very first opportunity that presents itself to get back into their old habit of playing jokes on the community. However, the welcome celebrations are cut short when disaster overtakes the village.
Bryn, a thoughtful young Barue who is heir to the famous Bellyset family, the success of which came about by means of the popular drink Swigny, is pitched into a world of horror that gives way to a tapestry of deceit.
By the time Bryn and his allies even realise the dastardly plot, let alone discover who is behind it, it is too late to reverse their fortune. Soon their plea for help becomes a race to escape the capital city with their lives, never mind the aid they didn't get...
