Goodreads Summary: Sarah and her twin brother Jon are heirs to an ancient magical realm and its most valuable treasure, an enchanted library. The library endows readers with the supernatural means of crossing into the uncharted inner-sanctum of the second dimension, inhabited with peculiar and sometimes perilous creatures.
The children are emboldened with a wondrous mystical gift that no other being has ever possessed. But fate intervenes and triggers a disastrous inter-dimensional war that disrupts the fabric of time and space spanning multiple universes, tearing destiny a new and savage pathway.
The two must rescue their world from a phantom hybrid alien race controlled by a demented dark-wizard, Jeremy Sermack. They will either assimilate or be exterminated.
Will they be the saviors the prophets spoke of, or will they retreat to the perceived safety of their distant homeland?
This book had everything that I love in a book! Creatures, magic, and a library that is enchanted????? Hello?....I work in a library. What would I give to work in a library that is enchanted. Everything! This fast gripping tale has action and comedy.
Sarah and Jon are twins that are traveling to their grandparents home in Wales. There have it set in their minds that it is going to be quiet and not that exciting until they find themselves emerged in their family roles as being special and having an inter-dimensional world (love it) that has an enchanted library. When certain things start to unfold it is up to the twins to protect those they love.
I had so much fun reading this. It is for middle graders but I am 27 and I really enjoyed it. I felt the writing was good. It started off with a good pace and I love how it took me on a roller coaster of pulling me in and out. All of the characters were very enjoyable to read.
