Cory and Cyclo have lost two friends to the Shadow World and know that they must do something, but what can it be? Do they join forces with Emily Jones and the Elves to battle Noctura? They took on Ragana and the Goblin King and proved that they can fight, but Noctura may be a different type of foe... Considering that Noctura is eternal, can she even be defeated? Is it too dangerous to take her on in a battle of magic? The stakes are high: if the Guardian Creatures, the Elves, and Emily lose the battle, they could lose what little magic they have left.
