Chapters 13 to 15
Chapter 13: The wizard Antorell catches Cimorene and the others talking about the wizards’ plans, and threatens them. Alianora, however, melts Antorell with a bucket of soapy water. Cimorene, Alianora, and the stone prince prepare to do what they can to stop the wizards, mixing more buckets of soapy water and then using one of Cimorene’s magic feathers to transport to the clearing where the contests are taking place. They are unable to convince any dragons to help them, however, and so use the second feather to transport to Morwen’s house.
Chapter 14: Morwen uses a magic mirror to find out where the wizards are, and they all use the last feather to transport to that location. They discover several wizards, and melt them with the soapy water, but are then confronted by Zemenar himself. Zemenar uses Morwen as a shield, but the stone prince is clever enough to realize Morwen won’t be melted and destroys the head wizard. They then find the stone the wizards enchanted in order to cheat the contest, and with the help of a small rock Cimorene found in the Caves of Fire and Night destroy the spell. The furious Woraug attacks them, and they are all (including Woraug) arrested by an escort dragon who decides to take them to the new king of the dragons for judgment.
Chapter 15: We discover that the new king of the dragons is none other than Kazul, who was able to win the contest successfully after the wizards’ spell was broken. Cimorene and the others tell Kazul everything that has happened, and Woraug turns into a toad due to his un-dragon-like behavior. Alianora plans to leave with the stone prince to marry him and live in his kingdom, and Cimorene worries that Kazul won’t need a princess anymore now that she is king. However, Kazul puts Cimorene’s fears to rest by asking her to stay on as the king’s helper, and Cimorene is pleased with this role and optimistic about the future.
