The Nocturnal University has drifted off course and no-one can figure out why. No matter what Dean Piskine does, the massive, floating cloud-covered island keeps shifting course, heading unerringly towards the Australian Nocturnal Academy.
Meanwhile, Malcolm McAllister and Kim Long enjoy a meal at a new restaurant called the Gateway Café. At this small, rustic eatery, with its frilly curtains, checkered tablecloths and intimate lighting they eat probably the tastiest meal of their lives.
And then, a few hours later, they both come down with a particularly nasty bout of food poisoning, which is extremely unusual because supernaturals don’t get food poisoning.
They voice their concerns to Dr Nigel Ashe and Dr Muriel Primus, who decide to investigate. It doesn’t take long for them to discover the Gateway Café is no ordinary restaurant but the herald of something far darker and evil, a well-known entity that has managed to infiltrate the supernatural college.
Something is brewing deep underground, something that has managed to spread its roots through the campus. Can Malcolm, Kim, Nigel and Muriel find stop what is happening before the Nocturnal University reaches its final destination?
