Tom and his friends restored the barrier – but that was a temporary fix. Now they must find a permanent solution, the artifact, to protect Elfhaven for a thousand years and bring Tom and his mom safely back home to Earth.
To find the artifact they are forced to embark on a dangerous quest through the deadly Demon Forest, cross the raging Icebain River, and solve the riddle of the Cave of Nightmares.
On their desperate journey they must climb an active volcano past scalding geysers and deadly giant ice-worms.
Standing in their way are a bungling troll and ogre, a shape-shifting demon, and a demented fairy queen. With gremlins and wizards in hot pursuit only Tom’s scientific knowledge and the use of light and dark magic can save them.

A Note From the Publisher

1st Place winner in WRITERS DIGEST 2017 International Book Awards, middle-grade/young adult category.
The story's unshakable momentum takes the young protagonist, etal., through the unnerving Cave of Dreams, complete with a riddle and five tunnels to choose from, and the deceptively peaceful Realm of Fairie. Excitement, too, is elevated, knowing the barrier's power is on the verge of expiring. Doherty's breezy prose speeds through exposition, so readers new to the series won't be lost--or bored.
Familiar creatures and an other-world setting, a persistently fun tale chock-full of energy.
