Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It’s a few days before Halloween, and Samuel Johnson and his dachsund Boswell witness strange goings-on at 666 Crowley Avenue. The Abernathys don’t mean any harm by their flirtation with the underworld, but when they unknowingly call forth Satan himself, they create a gap in the universe. A gap that holds a pair of enormous gates—the gates to Hell. And there are some pretty terrifying beings just itching to get out….Can one small boy defeat evil—and harness the power of science, faith, and love to save the world as we know it?

In his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the death of his mother. He is angry and alone, with only the books on his shelf for company. But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness, and as he takes refuge in his imagination, he finds that reality and fantasy have begun to meld. While his family falls apart around him, David is violently propelled into a land that is a strange reflection of his own world, populated by heroes and monsters, and ruled over by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a mysterious book.... The Book of Lost Things. The Gates
