Reader reviewed by Gigi

Fairies are vain. Trolls are greedy and money hoarders. Satyrs are mischievious and always up to no good. And there is evil bound to the woods in the backyard of Grandpa's house. But when ancient laws are broken and this evil is released, there is no telling what can and will happen...
Siblings Kendra and Seth had no idea that a visit to their grandparents house will change their lives forever.
I won this book in a contest, and, to be honest, I probably would not have read it otherwise. This book sat on my bookshelf for months after it came in the mail. But I started reading it on one boring Saturday afternoon and I just couldn't put it down. I recommend this book for all fantasy and science fiction book lovers, including all of the Harry Potter fans.
