Max McDaniels always spends one day a year at the Art Institute. This year, from the moment he enters, something strange happens.

He finds himself in a roped-off room staring at a strange tapestry. Soon weird and wonderful things begin to happen to him as Max finds out about a magical school called Rowan Academy. Before long, his awe fades away into concern as he finds out that attending this school might be harder than he thought.

To top it off, kids who are also meant to attend the school are disappearing from all over the world at an alarming rate. A new sense of peril erupts around Rowan Academy and Max finds himself pulled into a world of secrets and danger....

In THE HOUND OF ROWAN, Henry Neff elegantly weaves a story full of adventure and fantasy and pulls readers into a magical, startling world. All in all, this is a good book to just curl up with on the couch and relax. The reader will almost immediately find themselves enraptured and completely caught up in Max's world.

When Max McDaniels sees a vision in a Celtic tapestry in a roped of corner an art museum - where he was hiding from a mysterious stranger - he is pushed into a new way of life. He is pursued by an evil old woman and giant wolf creatures called vyes, and travels to a boarding school where magic is taught and a reformed hag runs the kitchen. "The Hound of Rowan" is a exciting combination of fantasy, history, mythology, folklore, and science fiction.
