Summary

Summary

In a world divided by those who create and others who destroy, stands the High House, a mystical dwelling filled with twisting corridors, magical books, and secret passageways. For Master Carter Anderson, the task is to protect not just the House, but the whole world from the forces of evil. Now a new foe arises, The Man in the Dark. Powered by the Anarchists, he steals the High House's magical cornerstone and lays the foundation for the False House -- unleashing a hellish reign of terror upon all who cross its threshold.

Library Journal Review

As master of the High House of Evenmere, Carter Anderson serves as the guardian of the world and all that it contains. When the Man in the Dark kidnaps a young girl and steals the power of Evenmere, Carter must confront his enemy deep within the heart of the False House. Filled with biblical and literary allusions, Stoddard's sequel to The High House tells a tale of human faith and courage. Reminiscent of the works of Christian fantasists C.S. Lewis and Charles Williams, this title is a good choice for fantasy collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
