Who I'd Recommend to: Fans of Otherworld, the Land of Stories, and Eragon.
Synopsis (from Amazon):
Something has changed at the Gregson Manor. An emerald has been stolen and a dark mist infects one of its Gardens.
Jack and his cousins are thrown into a universe of black magic, dark secrets and punkeys, as they search for a way to save their world and hopefully the whole universe with it.

The one negative I have is that the story didn't have me nearly as gripped until about a fourth of the way in. Not as much happened, and the writing wasn't as suspenseful and didn't me scrambling to turn the page so I could continue reading, like I did later in the story.
Other than that, though, I really enjoyed this story and all of the action, adventure, and creativity it contains.
