Castle Glower has been acting weird, so it's no surprise when two towers transport Celie and her siblings to an unknown land. When they realize that no one from home is coming to get them, the kids--along with Celie's pet griffin Rufus--set out through the forest to figure out where they are and what's happened to their beloved Castle. Instead, they discover two wizards and an entire lost people, the oldest inhabitants of Castle Glower. And it seems they may know more of the Castle's secrets than Celie. But do they know how to get her back home?

This bestselling series continues with the story of the origin of Castle Glower. Readers who've been enchanted by the Castle's moving walls will be delighted by the Castle's rich and magical history.

    I love this book so much! It was about two girls and three boys who lived in a castle with their mom and dad but one of them didn't, and then two towers brought them to a different place in the forest, because the castle was sort of alive. Then a wizard came and brought them to this weird place, and it turned out he was bad. While they tried to find the eye to fix the castle, they learned that not everybody is nice. My favorite part in the story is when Cecile found out that she'd found the eye all along, but she just didn't remember it. I read this story so fast because I couldn't stop reading it, I always wanted to find out what would happen next which kept making me go. It is a great fantasy story!! There's an important message in the story and it's to treat others how you want to be treated. I hope you like it as much as I did!!
