The long wait is finally over, because today's the day you can get your hands on Jacqueline West's SPELLBOUND, the sequel to the critically acclaimed, New York Times Bestselling novel THE SHADOWS. SPELLBOUND continues Olive's adventures into Elsewhere, where she'll meet new friends, face familiar foes, and be sucked deeper into the mystery of her house's previous owners.

Here's a terrific video featuring fun facts about the house that inspired the series, some details about SPELLBOUND, and the always-lovely Jacqueline West speaking about her story.

If you missed out on the first book of the series, don't fret! THE SHADOWS was released in paperback just last month! It's not too late to read the book Publisher's Weekly praised for it's "wicked sense of humor," Time For Kids rated 9.5 out of 10, and The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books called "A delightful concoction of quirky humor blended with a rumbling ominous undertone."
