Twelve-year-old twins Matt and Emily Calder are Animare: they can bring art to life and enter paintings at will. They must do everything in their power to prevent a breach in Hollow Earth: a supernatural place that holds all the demons, devils and creatures ever imagined.
The Hollow Earth Society are getting closer to finding the key that will release the beasts: an ancient bone quill whose powers can be only be used by a powerful Animare. The quill has been lost for centuries, but important clues to its whereabouts lie somewhere on the island of Era Mina - as does the entrance to Hollow Earth itself.
Matt and Em must find the quill and protect it - but their lives in the relative safety of Auchinmurn Abbey are thrown into confusion with the arrival of a newcomer who threatens to ruin everything they have worked for. All too soon, the twins are forced to make a terrible choice: save their father, or save the world.

Zach - he is awsome, he might be deaf but he is very smart.
John's voice is great I loved the Scottish accent.The story is unique and just great.
Definitely...I was very sorry that I could not do that so I listened to in 2 sittings
I really like to read more sequel.
I really liked the story and is a brilliant follow on from Hollow Earth. John Barrowman's narration brings the creative colour of the words in his native Scottish tongue.
I have just bought The Book of Beasts in paperback to continue the story, but I will be on the lookout for this as an audiobook.
