By Zurcher, Andrew
A sweeping and magical tale of imagination, adventure, and the transportive power of storytelling, perfect for fans of The Golden Compass and A Wrinkle in Time. The fact that Kay's father has gone missing on Christmas Eve is strange enough. But when Kay and her sister Ell go to h...is office and everyone he works with claims never to have heard of him, that's downright unsettling. Later that evening, Kay wakes up to find two mysterious strangers outside her bedroom window, talking about her father and looking for the last remnants of his existence. Boldly, Kay confronts the men and demands to know what's happened to her dad. The two men, Flip and Will, are not actually men at all, but wraiths, on a mission to remove Kay and Ell's father and bring him back to their world--the world of woven stories and grand imagination that their father has spent his career studying. Only things in that world have gone very wrong, and the Bride of Bithynia, the only being who can set things right, is nowhere to be found. Kay and Ell join Flip and Will in a centuries-old battle to restore harmony and balance to the world. Debut author Andrew Zurcher has created a world as captivating as Lyra's Oxford and Alice's Wonderland in this spellbinding quest of a novel.Read more
