I: Meet The Monster Of The Middle Forest

What could pass for a forest in the middle of a large city? Harry hoped the King's message was referring to the city, because if not, there were far too many forests to choose from—hundreds in this part of the country alone!

Someone should really have organized this thing better, Harry thought. Assigning individuals to specific areas would have gone a long way toward streamlining the whole process.

There was a huge urban park in the city, though it spanned both sides of the river and about half of it was in another chunk to the north. Henry sighed. He would have to commit to one of the three sections.

He lived on the West side, and was more familiar with those parts of the park, so he decided to remove the East side from consideration. But there was still a ton of acreage to choose from. The West side's older park was bigger, but it was broken up by monuments and museums. The northern park area was wilder and much more like a forest, but it was also dark and more deserted this time of night. Either way, he would have to bring a flashlight and hope for the best.

Should he try the older more developed park?

Or the wilder northern section?
