Thirteen-year-old Toby Baxter looks forward to enjoying the winter break with sledding and holiday festivities. However, his plans are interrupted when he receives a frightening warning that draws him back into the magical land of Riverhome. This time, Toby must confront an even more significant threat—the land is dying, and the sword that could save it has been taken by the trolls led by his arch-nemesis, Clygon.

Wright has the knack for weaving elements of fantasy and holiday cheer in this enthralling adventure, creating an exciting and heartwarming story.

The suspense is persistent as readers follow the young protagonist, wanting to know the outcome of his journey. Wright’s exquisite prose captures quirky moments and witty expressions that will excite readers. One of the book's highlights is Toby's unconventional approach to heroism, choosing to combat Clygon with empathy rather than physical force. Fans of Toby's first adventure will thoroughly enjoy this heartwarming holiday tale filled with thrills and inspiration—a deft and balanced tale with a protagonist that instantly steals hearts.
