After his last adventure, Urchin of the Riding Stars has taken his place as a trusted member of the Circle in King Crispin's court. Life on the island is back to normal, with little Princess Catkin growing up and testing everyone's patience in the process.

But daily life is disrupted when Lord Arcneck and other inhabitants of Swan Isle come to Mistmantle asking for help. Their home has been taken over by bloodthirsty ravens that are attacking them and ravaging everything in sight.

The brave animals of Mistmantle rush to the aid of their friends, but in doing so, incur the wrath of the invaders. The vengeful ravens are powerful, and will stop at nothing, until Mismantle is a desolate wasteland. Only by using all of their courage and cunning will Urchin and his friends preserve their island home as they know it.

I really enjoyed this chronicle of Mistmantle. It was really good, and fun, and you feel so in there with it with the goodies! Good old Urchin!

Violence and fighting. Not horrible descriptions. It also mentions wine, and that the enemies are led by an evil power.
