Young Jonathan Goodfellow and his father set out to rescue children from slavers with the help of the Bairnsley University underground. Things go from bad to impossible when a raiding party of thurgles - huge giant-like creatures - and their hellhounds get there first. Then the Bairnsley University wizards fail to arrive. Will the Goodfellows save the children? Or will Jonathan become a slave himself?
"The Secret Child" is a read-alone prequel to Quest (Book 1 The Sylvalla Prophecies)
