Thisby is BACK!! And this time she’s saving the Dungeon! Again! This time rumors of war on Umberfall have reached the king, who sends an royally appointed overseer to oversee the dungeon in case of Umberfallians who would like to very much see too a war. But, an adventurer shortage makes a gold shortage which make the overseer make the Wretched Scrattle happen again, but the last time it happened was a couple hundred years ago, so the rules need some changing. But then Thisby’s beloved Grunda quits, in light of having to work for Marl, the overseer. But Grunda goes to Iphigenia, the crown princess who is also Thisby’s BFF. She will happily sign Thisby’s form to enter the Wretched Scrattle, ( they had to have had a dungeon official and royalty or a royally appointed official sign it) now they need a dungeon official. Oh yeah, Marl doesn’t want Thisby to win, nor anyone else, but the master is in favor of Thisby because 1. He hates that you can’t even so much as step outside of the castle when you’re master and 2. He thinks Thisby is the best person since he’s been doing his job since the dawn of the dungeon. ( not in one term, not in two side by side, two entirely separate terms, which kinda makes you think that that isn’t possible since masters serve until the end of their life!)SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oops, I almost told you his real identity

I recommend this book to kids 4th grade + because it’s so great!!!! I also recommend this book to kids who like monster, adventure, magical bad guys, and stuff like that!!
