“What is the spell for?” Miranda asked curiously, stepping close beside him to squeeze through the first ring of trees. She didn’t know of any goblin spells that used flowers unless they were crushed like herbs.
“Do you really want to know?” murmured the elf absently, looking up at the dark crowns of the ancient oaks.

The powerful final volume of the Hollow Kingdom Trilogy

Miranda has waited her whole life to come home to the goblin kingdom, but she never imagined she’d feel so alone there. Her beloved Marak, the center of her world since childhood, has reached the end of his reign.

But Marak didn’t raise a coward. Miranda needs all her courage when a mysterious elf lord takes her prisoner, reigniting an age-old battle. Caught between two hostile races, she becomes their greatest reason for war—and their only hope for a future.

In this final volume of the Hollow Kingdom Trilogy, Clare B. Dunkle draws readers deep into her magical realm for one last incredible story.
