From the Back Cover
"Such was the fate of Owen Reeder, for as he took his last step of what could be called a normal life, something caught him at his waist. His feet and arms flew forward along with his head; then he snapped back. Owen was suspended in midair.
That's when he heard the whisper. . . .
Nothing special is the best way to describe Owen Reeder-at least that's what he's been told all his life. When a stranger visits his father's bookstore, Owen's ordinary life spirals out of control and right into a world he didn't even know existed.
Owen believes the only gift he possesses is his ability to devour books, but he is about to be forced into a battle that will affect two worlds: his and the unknown world of the Lowlands.
Begin the adventure.
