The Lovereading4Kids comment

This, the second part of the Lost trilogy tells how Rob moves between his old, full-size life and his new tiny one. Both are full of dangers and Rob has to show great courage in both in two stories with many parallels.

The second in the exhilarating trilogy. The first one in the Lost trilogy is The Dark Ground and the concluding part of the Lost trilogy is The Nightmare Game.

Synopsis

The Black Room - The Lost Trilogy book 2 by Gillian Cross

Robert is determined to rescue Lorn, who remains trapped in the tiny underground world from which he has managed to escape. She'll die if he doesn't help her.

Is it something that is calling her home or something more sinister? Can Robert get to her before whatever lurks in the black room does?
