Twelve-year-old Ben Arnold returns to the magical world of Eidolon to rescue his sister Ellie and help their mother battle the vile Dodman, whose power continues to grow.

Baker & Taylor
With Ben's mother, Queen Isadora, leading the charge, the battle against Dodman begins as the Arnold children fight to stop Mr. Dodd's plot to steal the magical creatures from Eidolon and ruin their beloved Secret Country in the process.

Simon and Schuster
Ben Arnold had hoped that exposing Mr. Dodds's vile Pet Emporium --


business that stole magical creatures from Eidolon to sell to England's

rich and curious -- would prevent the Secret Country from fading away into

ruin. However, it soon becomes clear that the evil, dog-headed Dodman's

reign of terror has only just begun.

Ben's mother, Queen Isadora, returns to her homeland to lead its creatures

against the Dodman. Unwilling to be left behind, Ben's sister, Ellie,

crosses into the Secret Country and walks straight into a trap. Ben and his

father follow close behind, and soon the entire Arnold family is scattered

across Eidolon's magical and dangerous terrain. The Arnold children are

destined to save the Secret Country, but first they must save each other.
