A new evil has arisen in the far away kingdom of Despare, a nameless creature known only as the Jester, who is furious over the arrival of Max, a mysterious wanderer who's been befriending the cruel ruler's slaves. The slaves want him to liberate them, the Jester wants him dead, and all Max wants is to be rid of Despare so he can be back with his love, Rachel, who is waiting for him back in Aleria. With Rachel practicing for the lead role in Masquerade, Aleria's spring play, Max, along with two goofy friends, a monk wise beyond his years, and a mischievous sword, must chase after the Jester, who flees to Aleria to aide Furion, who has been committing murders behind the scenes. When the final curtain falls, can Max and his friends save Aleria from the Jester? Can Rachel stop any of the mysterious murders that seem to be leading toward her? Will Furion rise to power? Find out in the second installment of Venture to Midnight, a story that explores the mystery of human nature, sheds some light on a sorcerer's tormented mind, and shows what one man would do to be with his true love.
