Under attack by the Gawtrybe, Martin and friends seek shelter in a cave and come face to face with the huge owl Boldred who seems threatening until she helps by angrily chasing the Gawtrybe away. She is a mapmaker and offers to show Martin and his friends the way to Noonvale; there is a tunnel through the mountain! Brome and Felldoh ensure the slaves are safe, then return to lead a group of pursuing pirates into a swamp. Badrang returns to Marshank through the slave's escape tunnel and quietly creeps up on the unsuspecting Clogg.
At the same time, Martin and friends emerge from their own mountain tunnel and see the gentle sun soaked woods before them.
Boldred leads them to the ship of an otter named Starwort, and the logboats of a tribe of shrews. The friends float down the river on the boats-- being transported to Noonvale. As Badrang attacks and overcomes Clogg and his crew, Brome and Felldoh rejoin the slaves who are preparing to re-take Marshank as the Fur and Freedom Fighters. As they prepare for the siege, Martin and Rose see Noonvale-- they are almost there. But they fear for Brome and the others, unaware of the momentous events taking place at Marshank.
