All around us there exists a world just on the edges of what we call Real--a realm of underground forests beneath the sewers, goblin markets held in empty parking lots, and witches living just a few houses down the street.
For siblings Thomas and Jayne, a walk through the woods behind their new house suddenly plunges them into this new world and sends them running for their lives. Lost, afraid, and pursued by a group of shape-shifting children, Thomas and Jayne have no choice but to accept the help of the only one who comes to their aid: the sinister Locust Man. Their new guardian--the clueless, but well-meaning Desmond--follows his cousins into the same strange magical realm, and will stop at nothing until he rescues them from the Locust Man and brings them home again.
