The dark and thrilling sequel to the book Kirkus called "Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, and Inkheart all rolled into one."
When Alice's mysterious Uncle Geryon sends her to help capture a rogue apprentice - a boy who has the same ability Alice has, to read himself into stories - she knows to expect a wild and unpredictable trip. But even though Alice has visited the magical realms inside libraries before, this adventure is far more dangerous. Because Torment, the magic creature holding this library together, has gone mad.
But he might also have information about Alice's missing father.

This sequel was engaging from cover to cover. The author's unique sense of mystical imagery catapults ALICE's ensuing journey of self-discovery, unwitting cohorts of acomplising characters, and morally complicated conflicts into the stratesphere of epic classical literature.
It is claimed that the good 'copy' the greats, and the greats simply 'steal' from those more talentedly experienced. This tale accomplishes grandeur without 'copying' or 'stealing' from the greats which have come before it (Lewis, Rowling). Instead, it simply steals the essence of nonsensical dystopian fairtales and, in turn, the hearts of all who dare the reader's journey.
