Gauntlet – Allon Book 5
Prince Titus is kidnapped, and the suspects are Tulundian pirates. But what do they want with a 7-year-old boy?
The fate of his nephew in question, Nigel takes Chad and Avatar on a covert mission into Tunlund. To facilitate their effort, they join a tribe of gypsy entertainers opposed to King Dante. The trio get more than they bargain for with the tribal shaman, a gypsy dancer, and a sword-wielding young woman who matches Nigel blow for blow. When the mission is betrayed, it becomes a race against time to stop a war and rescue Titus.
