A peculiar peril
- FANTASY VAND TEEN (CEN)
New York, NY : Farrar Straus Giroux Books for Young Readers, 2020
632 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
After Jonathan Lambshead's elusive grandfather dies, the recently orphaned teenager inherits the family mansion--and its contents. Jonathan soon discovers that the mansion's basement holds more than just oddities: three doors serve as portals, with one leading to an alt-Earth called Aurora, where magic abounds, history has been re-written, and an occult dictator called Aleister Crowley leads an army pillaging alt-Europe. Jonathan learns of his destiny as a member of The Order, a secret society devoted to keeping our world separate from Aurora, and embarks on an epic quest to protect Earth from Crowley's dark magic.
