When Liza’s brother, Patrick, changes overnight, Liza knows exactly what has happened: The spindlers have gotten to him and stolen his soul.
She knows, too, that she is the only one that can save him.
To rescue Patrick, Liza must go Below, armed with little
more than her wits and a broom. There, she uncovers a
vast world populated with talking rats, music-loving moles,
greedy troglods, and overexcitable nids . . . as well as
terrible dangers. But she will face her greatest challenge
at the spindlers’ nests, where she encounters
the evil queen and must pass a series of
deadly tests — or else her soul, too, will
remain Below forever.
