Family secrets lead to a fantasy world in this dazzling fantasy debut from Todd Mitchell.

Darren and Jackie Mannahan thought they lived in an ordinarily unhappy family, where some things were never discussed. But an unexpected, shadowy visitor suddenly propels them into a mystery they didn't even know existed -- the mystery of where exactly their family came from, and why it's now in ruins. After tracking down many clues and signs, Darren and Jackie discover an alternate world where their family used to rule -- and was banished in disgrace. Can they redeem the family name ... and discover whether their lineage is truly evil, or if there's more to the story than that?
