This companion to Clements' Things Not Seen was enjoyable, but not as good as the previous book. Only the main characters, Gwen, a 17-year old violinist, and Bobby, (the protagonist of Things Not Seen) who reappears to help her, are fully drawn. And the central plotline, the disappearance of Gwen's beloved grandfather, is resolved in a hasty and unsatisfying conclusion.
