  1. The second in a trilogy of books that started with Small Spaces. This was as well written as the other one with a believable story and well rounded characters.

It's just as entertaining a read as the first one and I'm looking forward to the third one. Recommended

But for the young, wild Vasya these are far more than just stories. She alone can see the house spirits that guard her home, and sense the growing forces of dark magic in the woods... and knowing that it's just the sort of thing my daughter loves got for h
