The story starts in the back of a rushing ambulance during a medical emergency and never slows down. Ivy and Seb get their granma to the hospital then leave, only to find her house has been ransacked. Before they can figure that out, strangely dressed men appear at the door and threaten to arrest them. A stranger helps them steal away--by magically transporting them into an underground realm where the dead walk, the authorities pursue them, and the darkest forces are holding their parents for ransom under threat of death. All while the siblings have no idea what is going on, scrambling from one situation to the next while trying to make sense of it all.
This is a fun and inventive adventure featuring resourceful young characters and an intriguing mythology. 3.5 stars.
