Nikolette is the newly crowned queen of Eryx, but she finds herself in quite a predicament when she received a frightening message from the neighboring kingdom of Goth. Faced with the realization that an invasion from evil King Iodoc is imminent, Queen Nikolette struggles to create a plan to defend her sea kingdom. Will the young Queen Nikolette find a way to secure the shores of Eryx and keep King Iodoc from setting foot upon the sands of her kingdom?
Young Nikolette arrives at the beautiful sea kingdom of Eryx and happily adjusts to her life as a princess. But Nikolette's carefree days as a princess are cut short when her grandfather passes on to the Isle of the Buried and Nikolette becomes the ruling queen of Eryx. Nikolette faces her biggest challenge when she discovers that evil King Iodoc has plans to invade her peaceful sea kingdom. How can Nikolette keep her people safe and keep King Iodoc from landing on the shores of Eryx? In addition, Nikolette suspects she has discovered some startling news about her family, the royal family of Eryx who perished at sea many years ago. But if Nikolette shares her suspicions, will people think she is not of sound mind--or worse, away with the faeries? Worse yet, would the people of Eryx question Nikolette's ability to rule their kingdom?
