Owen Reeder would describe himself as nothing special, especially since he's been told that all his life. Perhaps his only ability is to devour books. But one day, a stranger visits his father's bookstore and suddenly Owen's ordinary life spirals out of control and right into a world he didn't even know existed. Believing he has no special gifts, he finds himself about to be forced into a battle that will affect two worlds: His and the unknown world of the Lowlands! Recommended for ages 10 to 14.
