Having located the torc, it's up to Jack and his friends to keep it from the clutches of Velindur, who threatens to snatch it away and claim for himself the kingship of Annwn, which Jack knows is rightfully his. Meanwhile, somebody is kidnapping fairies and other creatures from Newton Gill Forest. The Oak Lord can help protect the creatures on Earth, but who is he and why is he so important?
