He was looking at a thing, a shape, a symbol, a writhing, changing world, a scattered, bursting story. And then, for a moment, it all came together, and he was hearing it. He was seeing a dandelion. Hearing a dandelion. Hearing the orange and the yellow, seeing the sour milk crawl in its veins, tasting its breath.

Henry put out his hand.

Henry, Richard, and Henrietta and her family are in big trouble when their house gets sucked into another world. Henrietta gets trapped in the world of the FitzFaeren because her grandfather stole three ancient treasures that they used against Endor. Henry is working to find out more about his family and where he comes from. Along the way he meets new people, some friends, some foes.

I think most readers will like Dandelion Fire, Book II in the 100 Cupboards Trilogy. It has an exciting plot sure to intrigue everyone who reads it. I loved how each character has a unique personality, and you can almost predict how they will respond in a situation; yet they still manage to surprise you. In some places in the book you just canít wait to go on to the next page.

I cannot wait to read the next book, The Chestnut King, and see where it leads. If you like this author, check out for more information on him and his books. This book would make a good read for anyone between the ages of 10 and 14.

I give Dandelion Fire 4 stars.
