Fourth and final (thus far) book of the Minivandians. Spoilers for the earlier ones ahead.
DaddyBear is escorting Ruarin home to Eyre, but troubles abound. Slavers, for one, and mostly Northmen, like Daddybear, and miscommunication between DaddyBear and Ruarin.
It involves the Good Folk, distilled spirits, someone DaddyBear knew of old, a spell that turns rope into metal, an aunt who disapproves of what Ruarin learned on the way, and more.
