Gargoyles of Blackthorne

Tyler Trent and Zack Vander once again visit the disappearing bookstore and go on another adventure from The Book of Mysteries, this time battling the terrifying Gargoyles of Blackthorne. Their quest is to retrieve the golden sceptor of Good King Elveron that keeps the country of Gothica safe and thriving, now stolen by his stepmother, the evil former queen. She has bewitched the gargoyles that guard her castle and the beasts come alive and menace the people of Gothica every night. With the help of identical twin Goth princesses, Lily and Ivy and their cousin, Sir Valor, the boys must enter Blackthorne Castle, home of the wicked queen where the sceptor is kept under the watchful eye of the gargoyles.
