Shielder's Mark breaks the spell on Ghostwood. This has been a dream since childhood. The legends of knights and heroes who went to Ghostwood, and did not return, were many. He wanted his chance to break the spell. In addition he wanted the reward promised by the King - to ask one thing and have this wish fulfilled.
Shielder's Mark asks for the hand of the princess Gail. Despite his misgivings, the King has to fulfill the promise made to whomever managed to break the spell. So Shielder's Mark gets the princess and a dukehood to support her. One would think that they lived happily ever after, but this is when the story takes off (kind of like real life). Nobody's Son is told in 3rd person and one has to take a sneak preview of the last page in order to know how things turn out.
I enjoyed this book - after all I gave it 4 stars. It has some unexpected twists and some given ones. Some authors are worth trying twice and this certainly goes for Mr. Stewart.
