In a small kingdom beset by enemies on all sides, the Queen hears disturbing rumors from her coastal city of Pingala and sends two spies to investigate. During their journey the spies discover just how much they dislike each other and are warned by brownies to beware of river trolls lurking under bridges. In the city they find the air thick with gossip of war with a neighboring country, the arrival of a malcontent prince, and an affair between the city’s most prominent clergy and a royal lady. The spies use their magic of invisibility and communication with plants and animals to investigate many leads but find nothing incriminating until three young Princes disappear. As they race against the clock to save the royal children the spies battle not only the enemy, but also each other, while at the same time watching for the ever present danger of river trolls.
