9780062104250: A Box of Gargoyles (Cabinet of Earths)

Fans of Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass will love Anne Nesbet’s middle-grade fantasy A Box of Gargoyles.
 
In this sequel to The Cabinet of Earths, twelve-year-old Maya is feeling more at home in Paris, a city filled with old magic. Her little brother, James, is safe, and the terrible man with purple eyes is gone. At least Maya believed he was until a person-sized column of dust and leaves with hints of purple where its eyes should be begins following her.
 
Maya suspects the strange, shadowy column is what’s left of the purple-eyed man, and that it—he—is behind the eerie changes in Paris, including the appearance of flying, talking stone gargoyles. She’s right. Worse, he has bound Maya to make him whole again, even if it kills her.

From the Back Cover:

For once, Maya Davidson is not worried. She is getting used to living in Paris, the terrible purple-eyed man is gone, and she's on fall break from school—free to spend time with her friend Valko.

But something strange is happen-ing in the city. Stone gargoyles that can fly and talk, women who sing in the street as if in a trance, a shadowy person-sized column of leaves and dust with hints of purple where its eyes would be . . . all of these come from a dark magic that ripples throughout Paris.

When Maya receives a curious letter on her birthday, she discovers that the purple-eyed man isn't really gone. He's behind the strangeness. And now he has bound Maya to make him whole again . . . by trading her life for his.

In this luminous follow-up to The Cabinet of Earths, author Anne Nesbet weaves a thrilling story of magic and danger that will be enjoyed by Maya's fans as well as by those who are meeting her for the first time.
