Cossypha's father, a reclusive sorcerer, seems to have gone mad. He's done something truly horrible to the servants and, since becoming obsessed with a mysterious Great Spell, hardly even notices Cossy's existence. She's had enough of being treated like a child and forbidden to study sorcery, so when she discovers Prince Rufik in the dungeon, she decides to steal him. Rufik, though he doesn't like being forced to believe in magic, is on a quest for a legendary, dragon-slaying sword. His father's kingdom is being laid waste by a dragon and the Sword Wormbane may be their last hope. Among some of the creatures in the Wild Forest, there's a story that the sword was forged by a sorcerer long ago and hidden, against the day when it would be needed to save the kingdom of Erythroth. Torrie begins to suspect that the story of the sorcerer and the Sword Wormbane is bound up with his own past. Did his friend Wren foresee some terrible fate for him, or why didn't she ever tell him about the sword? Even if they survive the dragon, Torrie and Cossypha may still be bound by Torrie's promise to return to Mistglom Castle and set things right. And a mad sorcerer who can do ... that ... to his servants is not a man to trifle with.

Critical Praise for the Torrie Books

Torrie and the Snake-Prince
''Typical of Johansen, the writing fits the world: quest, magic, forests and castles, are all described with rhythm and vocabulary that bring the reader close to this Dark Age fantastical environment... If this book could be compared to a wine one might taste hints of Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and the Brothers Grimm yet not without sensing the distinct flavour of Johansen.'' -David Ward, Resource Links
