Somehow Dinah manages to unleash forces relating to the stone images at the nearby castle. The ensuing story is somewhat disturbing - and the question is whether she will be able to control the forces she has unleashed. Will her school friends be able to help?
This is an interesting, and somewhat strange book. Worth reading though.
That said, "Griffin's Castle" is a very weak addition to the canon. It has a nice atmosphere, but its basic conceit, stone figures that come to life and threaten the heroine, is not at all compelling. Even with a relatively strong start, (that is, though, awfully loaded with heavy-handed teen girl angst), the book sort of drifts to an abrupt and unsatisfying conclusion. If all you want is a wintry mood piece, this should fit the bill. Otherwise, to borrow from the editorial review above, the work is awfully muddled and contrived.
