    DESCRIPTION John Hornor Jacobs
    "There are certain shibboleths to our condition."

    At the end of the first book of The Twelve-Fingered Boy Trilogy, Jack and Shreve are incarcerado―physically locked up. Shreve's back in the custody of the state of Arkansas, and Jack's somewhere in the clutches of Mr. Quincrux―both problems Shreve aims to rectify.

    Cages might hold Shreve's body, but the power that's been growing since his encounter with Quincrux has reached a pinnacle. Nothing can prevent his mind from scaling the etheric heights. Freed from his body, Shreve discovers the magnitude of the evil that's stirring in the east. The wave of insomnia that's paralyzed the nation is only the beginning.

    Starred Reviews
    VOYA

    "This is a book like no other.... Jacobs is a master of the supernatural story, leading readers along dark and winding paths containing secrets, evil, and unimaginable power." —starred, VOYA

    Booklist
    "This is a dyed-in-the-wool middle book—filled with training, planning, and sinister omens, its chief achievement is to foment excitement for the finale. And in that it succeeds splendidly....This fits uncomfortably in every box in which you'd try to put it—in other words, it's totally unique." —starred, Booklist
    Other Reviews
    School Library Journal
    "Jacobs's writing is engaging, and the novel contains realistic, mature language. The cliff-hanger ending will leave readers eager to find out Shreve's role in defeating the Entity as it awakens." —School Library Journal
    Kirkus Reviews
    "Shreve's inner dialogue and snappy one-liners ring both true and trenchant: 'In and down I go, into Schneider's brainmeat, into his unconscious, like some psychic cliff diver in a Speedo.'" —Kirkus Reviews
