It all started when Brian's mom needed a new job. So that she could go and search for a new job she put Brian in the care of his grandparents. After a while, Brian started noticing wierd things, like the signs were warped and that people were disappearing into bookcases. But, when he tried to tell his grandad about it he would change to a different topic. Then, one night, a creature called a Diefromen came to their house and started burning things because it was made of fire. That's when Sam and Hadley came and went to a bookcase and transported to it. After that they picked up two more kids, and took them to a place where there were monsters and kids alike. The 3 kids were taken to a place called Dragon Claw. They were told to stay in their rooms but when they went outside one day they met another Diefromen, but this one was much bigger. There were wizards around them carrying weird objects trying to capture the Diefromen. When they got blasted away Brian reached inside one of the objects and pulled out a piece of ice. He used that to freeze the Diefromen. That's when people realized he was special like his dad. After this they learned that the Diefromen was working for Deevilmon. Deevilmon is the demon in charge of the other demons. They also figured out that Brian's dad was with him.  So they set out to kill Deevilmon and get back Brian's dad. Will they find Deevilmon's secret lair?


This book was a great book for young readers like me. It had a lot of suspense,I kept wanting to read it even when I knew I couldn't. It was exciting but slightly easy. The hardest part of reading it was that it had funky words. I really think you'll like it.
