An ancient evil is on the rise. Children are disappearing. Only two boys, from different worlds, can stop it.

On Earth, The Wisdom family has always striven to be more normal than normal. But Simon Wisdom, the youngest child, is far from ordinary: he can see the souls of the dead. And now the ghosts of children are begging him to help them. Something is coming, something far, far worse than death . . .

In a far-away land of magic and legends, Matyas is determined to drag himself up from the gutter, become a wizard and learn to fly. But he, too, can hear the children crying.

Two vastly different worlds. One ancient evil. The child eater is coming . . .
