Abstract
Twelve-year-old Agnes Atwater and her brother Dean are sent north to spend the summer with their grandmother, a woman neither of them have ever met. They discover an enormous house nestled in a wilderness full of enchantment, mystery and a secret so enormous, it will change their world forever.
When the Atwater children and their new friend Peat discover that a necklace is actually the missing part of a key that allows the user to open doorways between their world and others, they are thrust into an adult world of danger and intrigue. On one side is their grandmother, part of an organization responsible for mapping and guarding the doorways between worlds. On the other side is Cabil, a mysterious foe, who will stop at nothing to find the “doormaker” named in an ancient legend. As the children follow the destruction left in Cabil’s wake—oozing black puddles, toxic landscapes—they must navigate the line between good and evil.
In Peat, Agnes finds someone she can trust with a secret—her ability to peek into other people’s memories. After a confrontation with a traitor in their midst, and a series of adventures that lead the children into another world, Agnes discovers that she has known the secret of the doormaker all along.
