The Suburb Beyond the Stars

The Suburb Beyond the Stars

Series: Norumbegan Quartet, The (Book #2)
by M. T. Anderson

Something very strange is happening in Vermont. It's not the Game of Sunken Places — Brian and Gregory have been through that before, and there's not supposed to be another Game until they say there's a Game. Still, when they go to visit a relative in the Vermont woods, they find many things are...well, off. Seriously off. For one thing, people aren't where they're supposed to be. For another, there are houses everywhere. In fact, the houses seem to be taking over — almost as if they were alive.

If anyone in the universe can make high adventure out of supernatural urban sprawl . . . well, it's M. T. Anderson. And in The Suburb Beyond the Stars he brings both humor and intelligence to a thrill ride that's part quest, part mystery, part fantasy, and part Abbott and Costello.
