The sequel to the New York Times bestselling House
of Secrets-hailed by J. K. Rowling as "a breakneck, jam-packed
roller coaster of an adventure"-this second installment by
Hollywood director Chris Columbus (of Harry Potter fame) and
bestselling author Ned Vizzini (It's Kind of a Funny
Story) is full of even more explosive twists and turns.
Since the siblings' last adventure, life in the Walker household
is much improved-the family is rich and the Wind Witch is banished.
But no Walker will be safe until she is found. Summoning her to San
Francisco brings all the danger that comes with her, and puts the
Walkers in the crosshairs of a mysterious journey through Denver
Kristoff's books. As the Walkers travel from ancient Rome to World
War II to Tibet, they are tested in ways that cut deeper than
before-by Denver Kristoff, the Wind Witch, and one another.
Fantasy fiction fans who enjoy Rick Riordan will find much to
love in this thrilling and action-packed novel.
