In the months since her last visit to Joona, Margaret’s life has been easy. Not only does she desperately want to see laurel and visit Joona again, but perfect Heather Fitzgerald has been spreading mean rumors about her and her “swan stories” all over school.

Just when Margaret thinks she can’t stand heather a minute longer, Laurel reappears. And his message is more serious and urgent than ever: the dark swan, Sebasian, has talked the snobbish Regalia swans into rebelling. They have already taken over the castle and turned dozens of joona’s peace-loving swans into mindless servans of Sebastian’s evil, selfish desires. Unless the Regalia are stopped — and soon — Sebastian will have all of Joona in his power!

Margaret, Ryan, and Craig are determined to help Laurel win Joona back for the gentle swans they love. But then Laurel invites Heather to come along, too. She’ll ruin everything! thinks Margaret. Laurel has his own motives, however, and the grim situation at hand soon requires Margaret’s complete attention. Heather or no Heather, she’ll do whatever it takes to defend Joona against Sebastian’s sinister plan!
