In book four, Nathaniel has a lot on his mind. With the hope that his parents might still be alive somewhere, all Nate wants to do is find his traitorous cousin, Obediah Fludd, and make him tell Nate where Nate's parents are. Unfortunately, Nate's starting to learn that when you're a Beastologist (or Beastologist-in-Training), the animals come first.
Four new species of beasts are introduced in this adventure as Nate and Aunt Phil relocate a guivre, meet a faun, and save a unicorn (or two...or three...). When Obediah turns up in the most unexpected way (with the most unexpected companion), it's time for Nate to once again save the day.
But with all this travel and adventure, how will Nate ever uncover the truth about his parents? Keep reading this series to find out more about how when you're stuck, sometimes it's best to go back to the beginning.
