But when greedy, chocolate-hungry twins awaken the banished Old Malignant One, evil magic and Total Oblivion threaten the Five Kingdoms. Gracie must find a powerful, long-forgotten dragon’s egg before the Old Malignant One does in order to save the day. With the help of a wayward troll, two chatty bats, and the ancient crones, can Gracie foil his rotten plans?

This story started slow and introduced the two main characters Prince Marcus, second in line to the throne of Gorebreath and Gracie Gillypot, a Trueheart. These two also have help from two smaller characters like Gubble, a domesticated troll and Marlon, a bat. These people find a dragon's egg and face many troubles both while looking for it and after they find it. They even find help along the way from Queen Bluebell who returns Gubble after he runs off. At the end of the story they bring the egg back to the dragons just in time to see it hatch.
