*Starred Review* Cyrus and Antigone Smith have been living with their brother, Dan, since the mysterious circumstances that caused their father's death and their mother's coma. Then Billy Bones appears out of nowhere with a ring of keys and a dragon's tooth. Within moments of passing them to Cyrus, Billy is killed and Dan is kidnapped by the elusive Dr. Phoenix. The only possibility of rescuing their brother seems to reside in Ashtown with the Order of Brendan. This fast-paced fantasy quickly draws readers in to its alternate reality, where transmortal creatures cannot be defeated with ordinary weapons, and Dr. Phoenix's experiments on Dan and others are reminiscent of history's worst realities. Yet, on the positive side, there is the love the Smith family holds for one another, love that requires trust and self-sacrifice. Allusions to mythology and complex character developmentânot only of several young protagonists but also of Phoenix and the shifty cook, Sterlingâmake Wilson's first in a proposed series a gem. In an embattled world, where evil seems insurmountable, a glimmer of hope arises from a tooth. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
