The mysterious Stalkers show up at almost the same instant twelve-year-old Aiden Cain’s grandmother dies. Following his grandmother’s instructions, Aiden decides to seek out a powerful sorcerer at Melstone House. Yet when he arrives, he discovers the man died a year earlier. Melstone House now belongs to the sorcerer’s adult grandson Andrew, who agrees to help Aiden with the Stalker problem. But then other problems come up: a creepy neighbor is stealing power from the land, and magic is leaking between the realms. Dealing with these issues would be so much easier—if only Andrew could remember anything his grandfather taught him about magic. Fantasy legend Diana Wynne Jones, who has captivated young listeners for generations, delivers a compelling and humorous adventure. Steven Crossley’s narration captures the excitement and wonder as newly acquainted characters work together to prevent terrible consequences. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “She’s the best children’s writer of the last forty year. I read her latest book, Enchanted Glass, and marveled once again at how good she is.
