Teenage slacker Robert has returned from his harrowing adventures in Gwerinatha where he and Louie the wolf rescued Branwen (see Branwen’s Garden). His best friend Cameron Gray, who was with him when Robert vanished, decides to enter Gwerinatha, but only for a short while as he wants to be back in time for lunch.

However, Cameron, to his chagrin, learns that entering was easy, but leaving impossible. With no fast food available, Cameron must adapt to the strange Land of Gwerinatha if he is to survive. Over the next few years Cameron becomes an adept hunter. However, Cameron soon realizes he is part of an Originator ethnic cleansing plot to rid the Unfinished Lands of Gwerinatha of the unwanted humans like Seren.

The second Legend of Gwerinatha is a fabulous twisting middle school coming of age fantasy starring a slacker who has the grow up fast to survive only to find himself caught in the crosshairs of a diabolical genocidal scheme. Action-packed yet character driven by Cameron, Seren and others, fans will relish Chaos' Corner as the protagonist feels like Alice entering an eerie “Looking Glass” version of the Eagle’s “Hotel California”.
