The premise of this supernatural tale was good. Years ago, Jack's parent disappeared leaving him and his brother, Jeremy, to live with their grandfather on a farm in a small town. Years after their disappearance, Jack investigates a small sphere that sits at the entry to the woods. When Jack ventures beyond the sphere, he finds himself in a beautiful, magical place that mysteriously appears. When a beautiful woman, Genovene, shows up and invites Jack to a feast in their village, he is taken with her beauty and follows her further into the magical community.

What he finds there is the answer to not only his parents' disappearance, but the before now unsolved disappearance of many others. He discovers that the magical village is not at all what it seems, but filled with evil that he could never imagine.

My problem was not with the story itself but the way it was told. The story was narrated by Jack as he told it to a government agent and the dialogue between the agent and Jack, and the dialogue in general was rather elementary. I feel that relaying the story in a different fashion would have added greatly to the appeal of the book.
