From the Back Cover:

The Seven Swords have been united, and Artie Kingfisher and his knights are ready to take their place at the Round Table. . . .

What began as a video game has become all too real for Artie Kingfisher. He has escaped the evil Lordess Morgaine, reclaimed Excalibur, and finally opened the gate to the legendary isle of Avalon, where he will take his rightful place as King Arthur reborn. Now Artie and his friends--each with a mythical sword in hand--are ready to become the new Knights of the Round Table. In Avalon they are safe, but their fight is far from over. . . .

Reeling from her defeat, Morgaine still plots to overthrow Artie and claim Excalibur as her own, while Merlin's blind quest for power grows wilder and more dangerous. In preparation for the greatest battle of his life, Artie must discover the secrets of an ancient and mysterious tool called Scarffern and recover nothing less than the mythical Holy Grail. And he may soon find that his final fight won't be against an enemy--but against someone who he used to call friend.

In this exhilarating final chapter of Otherworld Chronicles, Artie and his sister, Kay, will struggle for their right to return home, save their father and their friends, and of course rescue the worlds themselves. . . .
