VOYAThis second book in The Dark Ground Trilogy can be read as such or as a standalone. It is very fun, fast paced, and energetic, but seems short. The language seems a little bit odd, but I suppose that because the author is British, and the language definitely adds to the book being fun to read. It is heavily recommended for fans of Elizabeth Winthrop's The Castle in the Attic (Holiday House, 1985/VOYA April 1986) and The Battle for the Castle (1993/VOYA June 1993). VOYA CODES: 3Q 3P M J (Readable without serious defects; Will appeal with pushing; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9). 2006, Dutton, 272p., Ages 11 to 15.
