Jasper decides to embark on a rescue mission with his friends Collin and Eileen to bring William back home before it’s too late. On this perilous journey, Jasper will see for the first-time life outside the countryside, and he will realize that he is not only rescuing his brother but Maeve, one of the last druids.
