After rescuing the beautiful Princess Gorgonzella from a deep dark hole in the ground, the kind and gentle Faerysouls from Sweetascanbee Castle are invited to attend a fabulous party at her home, deep in the heart of Ringfinger Forest, the easternmost forest of the Kingdom of the Three Forests. After being met by two seemingly friendly forest goblins, Grizzenbeard and Scryne, the faerysouls are guided along a lonely winding pathway, at the end of which lies a rickety old house.
But Princess Gorgonzella turns out to be not quite what she first appeared, and her friends, the slobbering Grymdlehack Troll, the Wasteland Ogres, the Sea Hags, Red Wolves and the Black Crows, are not as friendly at all. With the night fast approaching, a scary chase through the forest begins . . .
Can the faeries escape . . . who knows?
