Overview

For Todd, Zak, Jordan and Andrea, summer vacation at their grandmother s remote cabin in the Colorado Rockies has just become a lot more interesting... and terrifying. In the few days since they stumbled upon Paul McGurney s mysterious house of Glimpses, the children have been introduced to a Knowledge like no other and a monstrous Evil who wishes to oppose it at any cost. Drawn to the Knowledge but fearful for their lives, the children must weigh the costs and decide whether they are willing to risk it all for a Knowledge who is willing to risk it all for them. From ancient Jerusalem to the harrowing heights of Devil s Playground, the children experience one heart-pounding adventure after another before facing off for a final showdown against an Opposition who wants nothing more than to destroy them. In this adrenaline-packed second installment of the McGurney Chronicles series, all questions of Paul McGurney s identity will be revealed.... the Opposition will be unmasked for what he truly is... and the Knowledge will prove there are no limits to sacrifice and redemption. In Devil s Playground, Book II of The McGurney Chronicles, Josh Clark has accomplished what only the best authors can, making the second work better than the first. As a writer, I delight in his use of language and construction of engaging plot and characters. As a grandmother, I rejoice in a book I can buy my grandchildren with no reservations about language or content. As a reader, I was compelled to keep reading, moved to tears and sorry to come to the end. This is not just another cookie-cutter formula young adult novel; it will draw you in and hold you from first to last, no matter who you are. I can hardly wait for Book III! Mary Mueller, author of Stargazer: The Story of Mary Mother of God.
