Al and Owen are more intrigued by the Dragon Blood Islands than ever after Al's dad casually reveals his own father's connections to them. Keen to find out more and uncover the secret words that empower the magical sabre, the boys head back to the islands.
On arrival, they discover the elephants of Sabre Island are still in danger, at risk from pirates who want their ivory and who constantly steal the emeralds from the idol that is supposed to protect them.
Witnessing the theft by a newly arrived pirate, the fearsome Captain Slitgut, Al and Owen are determined to retrieve the emeralds and return them to their rightful place, so set off in hot pursuit, hiding on board Slitgut's ship.
But when the dastardly Gunner finally crosses paths with Slitgut in a battle for bounty on the high seas - will the boys be able to escape to return to Sabre Island with the gems in time to give the dying elephant access to the Elephants' Graveyard and secure the idol?
