Something is wrong in the house that Lin's family has rented; Lin is sure of it. The clocks tick too slowly. Frost covers the flowerbed, even in a rain storm. And when a secret key marked "Twistrose" arrives for her, Lin finds a crack in the cellar, a gate to the world of Sylver.
 
This frozen realm is the home of every dead animal who ever loved a child. Lin is overjoyed to be reunited with Rufus, the pet she buried under the rosebush. But together they must find the missing Winter Prince in order to save Sylver from destruction.
 
They are not the only ones hunting for the boy this night. In the dark hides a shadow-lipped man, waiting for the last Winter Prince to be delivered into his hands.
 
Exhilarating suspense and unforgettable characters await the readers of this magical adventure, destined to become a classic.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Fans of the Narnia books will enjoy this story set in another magical world, only you enter this one through a cellar door instead of finding it at the back of wardrobe.

I was captivated by this book from its exquisite detailed cover to the adventurous plot. The first book by its Norwegian author, it's a different fantasy... who wouldn't want to visit a wintery world inhabited by beloved pets? Even if trolls and nightmares live there too...
