The one who turns from wood to bone,
and then in turn from bone to stone,
must face the giants all alone.
With Olive the Oracle’s words ringing in his ears, Noname sets out to battle the fearsome Ginogle—half eagle, half ginomee, and sworn enemy of all wild ginomees. After scaling the lofty Mountain of Mirrors, Noname realises he is the only one who can retrieve the legendary Clonestone. Can he find it before the Cheating Giants use it to create a monster even more terrifying than the Ginogle?
