Finn decides to leave in order to lead the goblins away from the family but before he goes Teagan's younger brother Aiden sees a shadow man touch their mother when then dies a few days later. Dealing with their grief several months later the siblings discover that their father has been taken by some goblins into Mag Mell, another realm where many different types of sidhe live. With the help of Finn and their grandmother Mameio, Teagan and Aiden decide to enter Mag Mell to save their father.
