Synopsis

Midsummer Knight by Gregory Rogers

On a morning of midsummer magic the Bear discovers an enchanted world in the heart of the forest. But there is treachery at work and the Bear is swept up in a sinister plot that lands him in the palace dungeons. After masterminding a crafty escape he leads his new friends into a royal battle - but what hope do they have once swords are drawn? Midsummer Knight is a swashbuckling story of friendship and courage. An irresistible companion to Book 1 in the Boy Bear Series: The Boy, the Bear, the Baron, the Bard.
