Summary

An enchanting, exciting fantasy about a real-world girl searching for her sister in a land full of magic and strange creatures, blending the timeless feel of A Wrinkle in Time with Frozen 's powerful themes of identity, enchantment, and sisterhood.

Claire Martinson still worries about her older sister Sophie, who battled a mysterious illness last year. But things are back to normal as they move into Windermere Manor . . . until the sisters climb a strange ladder in a fireplace and enter the magical land of Arden.

There, they find a world in turmoil. The four guilds of magic no longer trust each other, the beloved unicorns have disappeared, and terrible wraiths roam freely. Scared, the girls return home. But when Sophie vanishes in the night, it will take all of Claire's courage to climb back up the ladder, find her sister, and uncover the unicorns' greatest secret.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* The first book in an exciting new series, this takes readers into the world of Arden, where, once upon a time, magic thrived, people of all trades mixed and worked together, and unicorns roamed. Then war between the various magical guilds raged, and all the unicorns were lost, save one, which was turned to stone (according to legend, anyway). Hundreds of years later, enter Claire and Sophie Martinson, who, like Lucy and her siblings in Lewis' classic, find their way to this magical, Narnia-like world through an old house full of unusual artifacts, and are quickly drawn into conflicts within Arden. When older, bolder Sophie disappears, it's up to shy and careful 11-year-old Claire to find her sister and bring her back home. Benko's debut ends in an excellent cliff-hanger bridging directly into the plot of the forthcoming second book in the series. The vivid world building and memorable characters add to the fantasy allure, while some truly touching moments of friendship and sisterhood give this story a great deal of heart. Fans of magic and fantasy, especially those who love Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time (1962) or the darker, creepy atmosphere in Neil Gaiman's Coraline (2002), can't miss this debut.--Pino, Kristina Copyright 2017 Booklist"
