From the author of Abhorsen comes classic fantasy set in a world dominated by the Ragwitch, a being of sinister, destructive intent.

Quiet, easygoing Paul never expected to be cast in the role of savior. But his strong-willed sister, Julia, has come under the thrall of the Ragwitch, and Paul himself is drawn not only into the creature's world but into a battle for Julia's very existence -- as well as his own.

B.O.R.I.N.G! Okay fine, so the story was... whatever. But I could not have cared less about it. I read the entire thing only to finish it for finishing it's sake. LOVED the Abhorsen series, but this was awful. NOT RECOMMENDED!
