James Riley is the author of Half Upon a Time, Twice Upon a Time, and Once Upon the End as well as the Story Thieves series. He’s met thousands of imaginary people, most of whom are more polite than you’d think, but less interesting than you’d hope. Owen, Kiel, and Bethany confront secrets, stolen memories, and some very familiar faces in Stolen Chapters (Aladdin), the follow-up to the second book in the New York Times bestselling series, The Story Thieves—which was called a “fast-paced, action-packed tale” by School Library Journal. Owen Conners would never jump into a mystery. There are too many hidden clues, twists that make no sense, and an ending you never see coming. Mysteries are just not Owen’s thing. So how exactly did he end up in one with his memory erased? And that’s far from the only question. How did Kiel Gnomenfoot, boy magician, lose all of his magic? Where’s Bethany, their half-fictional friend? And who’s the annoying guy wearing the question mark mask and Sherlock Holmes hat, taunting Owen and Kiel that Bethany is in grave danger?
