Overview

From the author of Abhorsen comes classic fantasy set in a world dominated by the Ragwitch, a being of sinister, destructive intent.

Quiet, easygoing Paul never expected to be cast in the role of savior. But his strong-willed sister, Julia, has come under the thrall of the Ragwitch, and Paul himself is drawn not only into the creature's world but into a battle for Julia's very existence — as well as his own.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Julia felt compelled to unwrap the strange, doll-like object, and as she did she became a captive of the Ragwitch. Paul, her mild mannered younger brother who always looked to his sister for leadership, is really torn. He knows that Julia needs his help, but does he have the courage to face the Ragwitch and her evil forces. It is a heart stopping good versus evil struggle with a variety of people and hideous creatures. One aspect that sets Garth's story above the rest is his multiple perspectives—the story as told through the eyes of Paul, the Ragwitch and Julia; and Julia's struggle to keep her own persona against a monstrous evil. Readers will race through this one and feel gratified at the end, but they will want to know more about many of the characters—a sequel seems to be in order. If you haven't already read the "Abhorsen" trilogy by the same author, it should be next on your list after reading this book. 2004 (orig. 1990), Eos/HarperCollins, Ages 12 up.
