Late one night Alice Creighton hears her father having an argument with a fairy - a snarling, bald beast with warts and needlelike teeth. The next day her father disappears, never to return. And Alice is sent to live with Master Geryon, an uncle she never even knew existed.
Geryon has a dark, mysterious library which is strictly off-limits to Alice. But after meeting a talking cat who is willing to sneak her in, Alice opens a book and suddenly finds herself inside it - and the only way out is to conquer the dangerous creatures within....
I loved the book but you need to read the first one to understand it
Unfortunately I didn't get to the end of the story as I couldn't bare the narrator voice but I will be buying the book to read as it seemed really good.
