An adventure-filled sequel to the middle-grade fantasy Kirkus called, "Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, and Inkheart all rolled into one."

Uncle Geryon's library holds many secrets and much magic so, despite battling a dragon and tree sprite, Alice has barely gotten her feet wet. Now Uncle Geryon decides it's time for Alice to have her first adventure outside his library, and she's not going alone. Alice, Isaac, and four other apprentice Readers are tasked to capture a rogue apprentice who murdered his master, but the library he's hiding in isn't the easy target they expected; none of them know the library is still a working deadly labyrinth, or that the vicious guardian is still protecting it. As the apprentices face the fight of their lives, Alice learns much more about Isaac, Geryon, and the fate of her father.

Perfect for fans of Coraline and graduates of The Books of Elsewhere, this is a classic middle-grade fantasy, with a poignant, dark edge.
