On a cold autumn night, twelve-year-old Remi Cobb makes a startling discovery—a mysterious object floating on the pond in her backyard. With no idea where it came from, or how it got there, Remi is compelled to unravel its secrets. Her quest for answers takes her on a perilous journey across realities, where she finds a crumbling world—and the dark forces behind its ruin. Here she learns the truth about her connection with the strange object, and of those that will stop at nothing to destroy them both.
But even if she can find a way to survive, can she find a way home?
Mr. Ballagh not only does it again with this second foray into his Quantum Worlds, but he manages to do it better. Any of the minor issues I had with The Quantum Door were utterly absent from novel. The author doesn’t waste any time with the narrative. He jumps right into the action of the book, and it’s instantly engaging.
