Now, Meredith is an 18-year-old, freshmen in college, and her brothers have been kidnapped. The police have no leads, and the family has not received any sort of ransom demands from the kidnappers. Meredith's grandfather is convinced that Cameron and Tyler were taken to a magical world, the same world as the setting of his stories.
While her grandfather is on a much needed vacation, Meredith investigates a noise coming from the basement and discovers a door that leads to a magical world. When Meredith passes through the door, she begins an adventure that teaches her the truth about her family's history and leads her to her brothers.
