Bridget and Tom have entered the giant, smouldering volcano of Fles. They discover an astonishingly sophisticated community which uses the power of the mountain to transmit ‘thought messages’ back to the Realm of Omelyn.

But a fierce struggle is taking place to decide what those ‘messages’ should be. Should they contain highly-coloured, provocative images to excite citizens of the Realm and help them forget the drudgery of their lives? Or should they be truthful and instructive messages, helping people to ward off the threats of war, famine and climate change that hang over them?

Bridget discovers her friend, Pageya, is to be used as a pawn in one faction’s bid for dominance. Can she and Tom help their friend escape an awful fate in the fiery cavern of Flesethro, thwart the evil wizard, Shoderim, and save the realm from the doom which his plans would inflict on it?

Malcolm Haslett has been involved in conflict situations from an early age. Brought up in Northern Ireland, he worked as a volunteer for two years in Rwanda, and for most of his career worked at the BBC World Service trying to explain Russia to the world, and – rather more difficult – the world to Russia. He is very happily married, with three adult children, and lives in London.

    Happy to have finally read the third volume of this beautiful fable on an imaginary world where young people will put in check the pernicious wills of power of some.
    This story is a hymn to friendship and brotherhood among men, it proves that they can hold in check the prophets of misfortune who seek only to enslave man to satisfy their thirst for power.
    The image of the rushing river coming from lake Esiruel and a wall of water engulfing evil and transforming the desolate landscape into a laughing and fertile valley is very beautiful and an excellent metaphor.
    The adventures of Bridget and her friend Pageya in the Realm of Omelyn end after amazing revelations and quite dramatic adventures by the peaceful image of a family reunited on a beach. The absent ones are in their hearts and are not forgotten.
    Thanks to the author for this beautiful story well written, with a great dose of suspense and rich in twists.
