A group of bold strangers meet one another on their way to the Ravensfaire Peace Festival. Rather than carnival games and regional delicacies, they find themselves in the midst of a rodent driven plot to throw that celebrated peace off balance.

Months later, and seasoned from adventure and intrigue, they find themselves on the road to Ravensfaire once more; no longer strangers, but a band of adventurers. This time, however, they are burdened with the memories of the last time the world was in complete mortal danger, and with the knowledge that the threat their kind faced then is reassuming his place of power.
