The mysteries grow deeper and the secrets darker in the second volume of the New York Times bestselling Books of Elsewhere series.

With no way into the McMartin house's magical paintings and its three guardian cats reluctant to help, Olive's friend Morton is still trapped inside Elsewhere. So when Rutherford, the new oddball kid next door mentions a grimoire--a spellbook--Olive sees a glint of hope. If she can find the McMartins' spellbook, maybe she can help Morton escape Elsewhere for good. Unless, that is, the book finds Olive first.

The house isn't the only one keeping secrets anymore. You'll never guess what happens next in this thrilling, chilling fantasy series, perfect for fans of Pseudonymous Bosch, Coraline , and Septimus Heap.

Olive is on a quest to discover more mysteries in her old house. She knows that there is danger in learning some secrets but she just can't stop herself. Now she has help from a new kid next door, but he isn't everything she thinks he is. Readers will love another spine-tingling mystery to solve with Olive as she tries to help her friends.

I was not disappointed with this second book in the series. Olive continues to uncover more secrets of the house, makes a new friend and fights an old enemy. Can't wait for the next book!
