''I'm Fifth Keeper of the Museum of Dunt, and I'm back where I belong.'

When Goldie, Toadspit and Bonnie steal into Jewel in the middle of the night they find their city under the heel of the Fugleman, and the streets controlled by the Blessed Guardians and an army of ruthless mercenaries. The Museum itself is seething with danger, and only the older Keepers prevent it from spilling out into the city. Goldie, Toadspit and Bonnie must use all their clever tricks and hard-won bravery to undermine the Fugleman's brutal regime before he rounds up the children of Jewel and sells them into slavery.

In order to stop the bombardment of the museum, save the children and defeat the Fugleman once and for all, Goldie must walk the Beast Road, an ancient pathway deep inside the museum, a pathway so secret and perilous that no one has ever returned from it. And according to the old stories, she can take only two companions, and they must be mortal enemies ...

The thrilling conclusion to the highly successful Keepers trilogy.' (Publisher's blurb)
