Great read, very enchanting.
I received a copy of this book for the purpose of review.

This book is aimed at 10-13 year olds, but is not childish in anyway. I am far from Middle School and enjoyed it. Robyn and Kit are two 12 year old girls who have both had strange senses awaken in them. Robyn sees visions and Kit hears voices having conversations. When Kit's family moves to town to escape frightening disappearances and arrests of family friends, Mr. Fischer, an elderly neighbor, introduces her to Robyn. Both girls are excited to have a best friend but are afraid to discuss their magical sense because it is a criminal offense to even talk about magic.

Telling any more of the story line would include spoilers, but there are magic doors, police actions that are reminiscent of the Nazis, demon-like creatures, a king and prince who have C. S. Lewis type connotations, and lots of lessons for the girls (and the reader) including how to treat others, standing up against prejudice, learning about your own weaknesses and strengths, and dealing with envy and anger.

If you or your child like the Narnia series, or books where kids are the heroes, you will love this series.
