Only a couple of weeks have passed since Henry York and his cousin, Henrietta, had their adventure in the mysterious cupboards adorning the wall of Henry's attic room.

Since he'd come to live with his aunt, uncle, and cousins in Kansas, Henry discovered the hidden wall of cupboards accidentally, and learned that each one leads to a different time and place. Built by their grandfather, who listed the combinations to the different worlds in his journal, the cupboards can only be traveled through via the large cupboard in Grandfather's room, which had been locked tight until the battle with the witch of Endor.

Henry's aunt and uncle receive a letter from his parent's lawyer saying that Henry must return to Boston in two weeks. Henry can't stand the thought of going back, especially now that he might have more of a history in one of the cupboard worlds than he'd ever imagined, and he grows desperate to escape through the door to Badon Hill, which calls to him in his dreams.

Henrietta, who'd stolen the key to Grandfather's bedroom so that she could explore the cupboards on her own, finally relents, and she and Henry go behind the barn to retrieve the key. While Henry keeps watch in the growing storm and Henrietta digs, he spots a curious dandelion that appears to glow. Reaching for it, Henry sees a flash of light and is knocked unconscious, with only a dandelion shaped burn on his hand to indicate what happened.

After a stranger visits him in his dreams, and he awakens blind, Henry knows that he must escape into the cupboards to find a better explanation of what's happening to him. Unfortunately, less compassionate forces are already interested in his growing abilities...

I must admit that I liked this book much better than its forerunner, 100 CUPBOARDS, if only for the fact that I felt much more involved with the characters and that we find out more about the history of the cupboards. Everything comes together in this volume, and, taken as a whole, this original concept makes for an interesting, action-filled story that will keep horror and fantasy lovers on their toes.

    Wonderful series!

    This is a second book in a trilogy and I expected a "trasnition" type of book where there are more details given but only enough to move the story to the final book in the series. However, this book is good enough to stand on it's own. and watching the main character grow and develop from a shy quiet boy to a person of power and how he handeled it was just perfect. I love the raggant and want one of my own! But aside from that it's the kind of series you can curl up with and read over and over. The characters are engaging The story flows smoothly and no one does anything out of character just to move the plot along. Also while there are a lot of characters to keep track of their personalities are distinct enough that you don't get them all mixed up with each other.

    So Far So Good

    It's a nice book. A little confusing at times, but pretty good. I think it could be a couple of dollars less, however.

    Hey idk

    Here is some advice. Ive read 100 cupboards and I loved it. Iwill agree that Dandelion Fire is confusing. I would reccomend going to a library and getting it before buying it, to see if you like it.
