When Hoole, Tash, and Zak stop on Necropolis to look for a new starship, Zak immediately makes friends with the local kids. And he’s willing to pull a crazy stunt – like going into the Necropolitan cemetery at midnight – just to prove he’s as tough as they are. The cemetery is silent as death and full of while, wriggling boneworms. And maybe Zak should have thought twice before accepting this dar. Just because the bodies are buried doesn’t mean they’re dead.
