Forced to flee Tamlaght, Bronwyn finds refuge with her uncle, King Felix of Londeac. She continues to scheme ways to undo the villians who have all but ruined her homeland. She is amazed at the level of scientific and technological progress in Londeac, compared to her own country, where intellectual advancement is systematically stifled. She makes a new ally in the person of the director of a scientific academy: Professor Wittenoom. Treacherously betrayed, she flees Londeac in a hair-raising balloon/dirigible chase, only to fall into the hands of the faerie king, Spikenard. Later meeting a man she believes she is in love with, she is finally able to raise both an army and a navy, and leads an invasion of Tamlaght. |
