From Publishers Weekly&newline;&newline;Debut novelist McNish's imaginative if somewhat predictable fantasy begins with evil witch Dragwena kidnapping Rachel and her younger brother, Eric, and taking them to her icy world of Ithrea. There, Rachel cultivates magical gifts with help from Dragwena's kindly assistant, Morpeth, and Eric discovers a power of his own (he can break spells, but not cast them). Rachel also learns of Dragwena's sinister plan: since being banished from Earth, Dragwena has kidnapped children, killing or enslaving them, as she searches for a child with enough magical powers to help her return for revenge. Rachel could be this child, or she could be the &doublequote;child-hope,&doublequote; a legendary hero amongst Ithrea's slaves, whom they believe can return them to Earth. A final face-off with Dragwena is inevitable, but first Rachel faces a forest of murderous trees, strange half-crowhalf-baby creatures and talking killer wolves as she searches for safety. McNish draws a clear line between good and evil, and there's never a doubt who will win the showdown, but the author will win over readers with his creative descriptions of strange Ithrea, and especially examples of Rachel's magic (in one of her early spells, she creates chocolate sandwiches from nothing; later, she tries to fool the witch by filling the sky with thousands of identical clones of herself). The conclusion hints strongly at a sequel. Ages 9-12.&newline;Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.&newline;--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. &newline;&newline;From School Library Journal&newline;&newline;Grade 5-8-Rachel and Eric have been having identical dreams about an evil witch on a frozen world, but no one takes their story seriously-until the witch breaks through to their world via their cellar wall, capturing them as their father tries to save them. Plummeting through immeasurable emptiness between the worlds, Rachel discovers that she has new powers to control her descent and the space around her, which she uses to catch Eric and bring them both to a safe landing on Ithrea. The witch Dragwena and her dwarf slave Morpeth are there to greet them. Each of them has awaited their arrival for a very different reason. Dragwena has kidnapped many Earth children with the hope of finding one with powers equal to her own to share her evil reign over Ithrea and feels that Rachel could be the one. Morpeth hopes that she will fulfill an ancient prophesy and free the dwarves from Dragwena's enslavement. The remainder of the story becomes a series of life-and-death battles between the witch and almost everyone else on Ithrea. There is an abundance of both good and bad magic, many spells and transformations, and plenty of blood and gore reminiscent of popular video games. Readers will enjoy the plot and action, and probably won't miss the details of character development and philosophy that are found in more detailed fantasies. There is room for a sequel, as the novel ends with Rachel, Eric, and Morpeth heading back through the cellar wall to Earth and home.&newline;Susan L. Rogers, Chestnut Hill Academy, PA&newline;Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.&newline;--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
