Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different--and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an outself. He grew up in the rambling old house, filled with dozens of cousins and aunts and uncles, all ruled by his father. Their home was isolated in the mountains of western Virginia, far from town, far from schools, far from other people. There are many secrets in the House, and many rules that Danny must follow. There is a secret library with only a few dozen books, and none of them in English--but Danny and his cousins are expected to become fluent in the language of the books. While Danny's cousins are free to create magic whenever they like, they must never do it where outsiders might see. Unfortunately, there are some secrets kept from Danny as well. And that will lead to disaster for the North family.

Here Orson goes back to what he knows best. The young adolescent with inteligence beyond his years like many of protagonists we have seen before i.e. Enders Game, Path Finder.
The union with modern day and antient Greek mythos blends nicely. Plenty to pull you along.
While many of the characters seem a bit one dimensional the story is compelling and engrossing. Looking forward to the next book.
