(From the publisher):
In another age, the pathways connecting Earth to the Wildworld were sealed, forever separating humans from the shimmering parallel universe where legends still live. A great sorceress, Morgana Shee, guards the solitary gate between the worlds. She alone holds the secret of Fell Andred, her mansion built directly on the Great Coastal Passage, whose mirrors are the last doorways to enchantment.
Morgana's grand dwelling is a short walk from the suburban California home of Alys, Charles, Janie, and Claudia, a brother and three sisters with little in common, until now. When Morgana is betrayed and imprisoned in the Wildworld, her familiar, a vixen gifted with speech, recruits all four of them for the dangerous and desperate rescue mission.
Armed only with resolution and courage, they must face Morgana's captor, a master sorcerer bend on enslaving the Earth. Though powerful, Cadal Forge cannot travel through the mirrors to the Stillworld, except on one night - the night of the Winter Solstice. December 21 is only two weeks away. There is no time to spare!
Mastering the secret of the mirrors, the children brave the terrifying journey again and again, searching for Morgana. The danger increases with each visit. Not only are there deadly perils at every turn, but Cadal Forge and his followers know their plans. Back home, their parents grow suspicious of their frequent, unexplained disappearances, making it harder to get away ...
