With no way into the house’s magical paintings, and its three guardian cats reluctant to help, Olive’s friend Morton is still trapped inside Elsewhere. So when Rutherford, the new oddball kid next door, mentions a grimoire—a spell book—Olive feels a breathless tug of excitement. If she can find the McMartins’ spell book, maybe she can help Morton escape Elsewhere for good. Unless, that is, the book finds Olive first. The house isn’t the only one keeping secrets anymore. Mystery, magic, corruption, and betrayal abound (plus just enough laughs to take the edge off). You’ll never guess what happens next in this thrilling, chilling second volume in the critically acclaimed series.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larissa | 2/18/2014

    " This book had me under the covers reading. Full of suspense, worry, mysterry, and adventure. LOVED it, but i was so sad when the book ended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/9/2014

    " While not quite as excellent as the first in the series of Elsewhere books, this was still most fantastic. There is more jumping in to paintings, and other fun magic. New characters to love. And the old talking cats, of course. More of this, please. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 2/8/2014

    " Olive learns who real friends are and how to be a better friend. She also learns that not all magic is dark. The cats begin to get more of a personality as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 2/3/2014

    " An accomplished sequel to The Shadows. Compelling writing moves the story forward, as Olive, goaded on by new next-door neighbor Rutherford, searches for the Grimoire, or book of spells, that had belonged to the McMartin witches. The occasional black and white illustrations enhance the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/2/2014

    " This is such a good "magical" series with a strong female protagonist! Lots of humor mixed in along with paintings that you can step into, talking cats, and some very ornery evils! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/27/2014

    " It was the best book ever! I have already read the first and second and am so excited for the new one to come out! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorelie | 1/23/2014

    " The second book in the series was just as great as the first book! Couldn't put the book down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/16/2014

    " This series is wonderful. I love the creepiness of it, but it has doses of humor and cuteness as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leopold | 1/10/2014

    " One of the best books I have ever read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Anderson | 1/10/2014

    " Agent 1-800 to the rescue! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/4/2014

    " This is a wonderfully creepy second in the series of Elsewhere. Olive is a spunky female character. She is trying to save Morton from inside a painting where he's been spellbound by a wizard. She also meets a new neighbor boy, Rutherford, who turns out to be very helpful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 M.e. | 12/6/2013

    " Finished this on the way to Seattle...now afraid my library book is still in Seattle. Sigh. Again, Soooo good. This is just her first series and this lady is going far! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa E. | 12/1/2013

    " Still fun, but this sequel wasn't quite as engaging as the first Book of Elsewhere. Still, I'm looking forward to book three. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elevetha Houre | 11/26/2013

    " 3 1\2 stars. Cute and fun. Imaginative. Sequel to "The Books of Elsewhere: The Shadows." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 10/9/2013

    " Just didn't hold my attention. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Delaney | 6/2/2013

    " The second book is better than the first. She takes children's books to a whole new level. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 3/4/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 6/24/2011

    " I was confused for part of this book...I didn't know who was real and who was a painting...also - the plot was too similar to the first in the series. "
