Over a million copies of Ian Irvine's fantasy novels sold.

It's not easy to be a hero when your bum is the size of an airship and you're bobbing around the ceiling, mocked by angry dwarves.

The Fey Queen, Emajicka, is stealing the children of Grimmery for her Collection. She bathes in their nightmares to relieve her own. There is one nightmare she wants most of all.

If Ike had stayed home that Tuesday, he would not have been expelled from school, betrayed a princess or robbed a murderous queen. He would not have been tied to an insane imp desperate to eat his liver.

He certainly would not have floated across a strange land on an impossible rescue mission, powered by exploding manure.

Nor would he have tried to escape via that disastrous troll-bum door.

But can he ever escape the Nightmare Queen?
