Book II of Forest Kingdom. In Castle Midnight, where the Real and Unreal meet, the King lies murdered.  His three sons get ready to do battle for the throne.  One prince is ill – possibly the victim of poison – so his followers, determined to keep his illness a secret, hire an impersonator.  The Great Jordan had been a great actor, but currently down on his luck, and more than willing to take on a royal role.  Then the Unreal gets the upper hand and large sections of the castle become supernatural no-go zones, with hallucinations and spectres as thick on the ground as spies and traitors – and just as deadly.  Soon the Great Jordan begins to wonder if this is his final curtain call.
