Archie Stringweed is now an official curse breaker -- he even has the medal from I.C.E. (International Curse Exterminators) to prove it. After defeating Huigor, Archie has the utmost confidence in himself. Unfortunately, his family is still treating him like a child. Archie is getting understandably frustrated with them, and it's making him behave a little bit recklessly. Especially now that strange things seem to be happening around Westervoe and Windy Edge. Again.

Archie hears the sound of an army marching over the sea, but how can an army march on water? Then there are the hypnotic eyes in the sea that keep trying to bring him closer, and the crazy sea gull that attacks him and his friends, the weird shadow in the classroom closet, and more icegulls. Archie knows there is a curse afoot, but no one seems to be willing to tell him anything at all. Archie is determined to help, whether they want him to or not.

This time, though, the curse might just be too much for all of them. This could be the curse to end all curses. Or, more accurately, the curse to bring back all curses, broken or not. All of I.C.E. and the entire Stringweed family is about to be put to the test, and Archie may be more necessary than anyone is prepared for.

There is a lot of information in this book. It still has all of the exciting elements of WIND TAMER as well as the characters that we got to know in that story. There are also a bunch of new characters, new monsters, and a whole host of new information about curse breaking. The story itself almost gets lost in the barrage of new information. I have a feeling, though, that this may turn out to be useful information. So pay attention because the end of the book makes it pretty clear that we haven't seen the end of Archie Stringweed.
