Hunter Wilson is in trouble - even more than he realizes. His enemy, the Dark Child, has not only discovered what Hunter looks like and what he's been doing (namely, stealing all the Dark Child's precious treasures), he knows, even better than Hunter himself, where Hunter is going next: an eerie, maze-like museum full of magical artifacts, one of which is the Dark Child's most potent and terrible weapon. If Hunter can get this weapon, he'll be one step closer to saving both worlds. But who can he trust to help him? The museum's strange caretakers? The dog-monster Murphy, who might still be the Dark Child's servant? Esthuan Thievesbane, who is certainly a servant of the Dark Child, but might consider herself in Hunter's debt? Hunter will have to discover for himself before it's too late.
