Publisher's Summary

Return to Castle Rock as Richard Chizmar offers the sequel to Gwendy’s Button Box, the acclaimed 2017 novella he cowrote with Stephen King!

Something evil has swept into the small Western Maine town of Castle Rock on the heels of the latest winter storm. Sheriff Norris Ridgewick and his team are desperately searching for two missing girls, but time is running out to bring them home alive.

In Washington, DC, 37-year-old Gwendy Peterson couldn’t be more different from the self-conscious teenage girl who once spent a summer running up Castle Rock’s Suicide Stairs. That same summer, she was entrusted - or some might say cursed - with the extraordinary button box by Richard Farris, the mysterious stranger in the black suit. The seductive and powerful box offered Gwendy small gifts in exchange for its care and feeding until Farris eventually returned, promising Gwendy she’d never see the box again.

One day, though, the button box shows up without warning - and without Richard Farris to explain why, or what she’s supposed to do with it. The mysterious reappearance of the box, along with the troubling disappearances in Castle Rock, leads Gwendy home again...where she just might be able to help rescue the missing girls and stop a madman before he does something ghastly.

From New York Times best seller Richard Chizmar comes Gwendy's Magic Feather, a breathtaking novel that asks whether our lives are controlled by fate or the choices we make - and what price we might have to pay for those choices when we reach for the things we most desire. Prepare to return again to Stephen King’s Castle Rock, the sleepy little town built on a bedrock of deep, dark secrets, which is about to awaken from its quiet slumber once more.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Gwendy is back

Gwendy's Magic Feather is the second novel in this extremely entertaining trilogy started by Stephen King, alongside award-winning author Richard Chizmar. Mr. Chizmar continues to delight the reader with another original story.

Renowned actor, voice-over artost and narrator Maggie Siff reprieves her role and delivers another top notch performance.

a whole lot of nothing

a story completely without conflict and almost without incident. gwendy is a likeable protagonist but is merely an observer to a series of meandering events. skip this one.

Captivating

Can be read before or after Gwendy's Button Box. The author did a wonderful job of including enough detail from the first story.

Gwendy is a lovable character. The author's descriptions & vocabulary throughout were beautifully composed. The perfect amount of suspense and closure.

Hoping to hear more of Gwendy Peterson's adventures in the future.

Love returning to Castle Rock.

Richard Chizmar captures the great place of Castle Rock once again. We also get to see what our beloved Gwendy Peterson been up to. A magnificent story after a magnificent first; Gwendy’s Magic Feather is a page-turner and it will keep you guessing until the very end, Richard Chizmar is a great story teller with a hell of an imagination.

totally enjoyed this book.

Loved the second book about the button box. So hoping there is many more to come. The authors wove a story that draws you in and has you totally liking the main character.

Well written but Lacking Substance

While written well, the magic feather aspect to the story was like an afterthought and doesn’t have much to do with the overall story. I was well into the novella (about 2/3rds in) and had forgotten about about it when it turns up. Also the story really doesn’t go much of anywhere. Seemed more of an excuse to send Gwendy to Washington and to make a political statement tangled into a lackluster story. Really lost the “magic” of the 1st book.
