On a soft summer night in Vermont, twelve-year-old Lisa went into the woods behind her house and never came out again. Before she disappeared, she told her little brother, Sam, about a door that led to a magical place where she would meet the King of the Fairies and become his queen. Fifteen years later, Phoebe is in love with Sam, a practical, sensible man who doesn’t fear the dark and doesn’t have bad dreams—who, in fact, helps Phoebe ignore her own. But suddenly the couple is faced with a series of eerie, unexplained occurrences that challenge Sam’s hardheaded, realistic view of the world. As they question their reality, a terrible promise Sam made years ago is revealed—a promise that could destroy them all.

This book had me up til 3.15 this morning, couldn't put it down. So many twists at the end it was hard to keep track, especially with the flitting between 15 years ago and present time. While this certainly wasn't one of the best written books I've ever read, and it had me more confused than confuse...
Kept me guessing all through the book. Seemed very dragged out at times, but then the ending seemed rushed and thrown together.
