Leek and Cecil will do anything to find their way back to each other—even if it means facing enormous odds and seemingly insurmountable obstacles. To escape from Hat, Leek must sail across the Great Ink, travel beyond the Jungle Prime Evil, trek through the Grottos of Ill Repute, and enter the heart of all bad luck: the fortress of the black cats itself. All while Cecil heads out on an adventure of his own to find the hard-heartened magician, whose tricks seem to have turned Cecil’s life upside down.
