New Beasts. Old Magic.
Everyone in Avantia knows the terrors of the jungle: creatures that pluck men from the ground and eat them whole; plants whose rich scents could overwhelm a person at twenty paces. Few dare to enter--and fewer still return.
But Tom has no choice. The next stage of his journey lies at the very heart of the jungle, where a terrible creature resides, evil as the wizard who created him.

It won’t be long before we find you and rescue Aduro — and then there.
And grabbed hold of the hilt before the sword sank out of sight. His lungs were burning as he stabbed his sword into the riverbank with all his might and held on. The power of the current and Storm’s weight almost dragged Tom away. But he kept his grip on the sword, and the blade held fast in the ground. “Tom!” Elenna called, running to the edge of the river and holding out her hand. He kicked hard, and felt solid ground just in front of him. His feet slithered through the mud, and the water.
Quickly, he cut away the vines that still bound Storm’s legs. The stallion waited patiently as Tom tugged him free. Claw had left a trail of destruction in his wake — it would be easy to follow him.

His curved claws were perfectly adapted for swinging among the treetops. But walking on the ground was another matter. But how could they coax Claw down to the jungle floor? It was impossible! Tom was exhausted now. He groaned. There was no way he could do this on his own. Dimly he heard Aduro’s voice in his mind:.
