I am always pleased when I discover a fantasy story that is different, and this one is.

I'm a sucker for stories where children travel to other worlds, so that was the hook for me. But it's also a bit of a mystery, which parallels between our world and the other world, and involves people from each. As they face mystery, and danger, I found the characters believable and likeable. I really like the way the children truly did have fear and reluctance at times, while forcing themselves to do what was right but hard.

The other world created was an interesting place, and I grew fond of the characters. I am wondering why there isn't a sequel yet!
