Wren Larkin has a lot of things working against him­­––too tall, too thin, and living in a house that looks like an old boot. His only friends are a group of noisy crows that are always bringing him random trinkets. Needless to say, he’s not the most popular kid in town.


But things change when a girl named Maria moves to town and instantly befriends Wren. Maria continues to do the unexpected when she defends Rusty, the resident bad boy who might not be as rebellious as Wren thought. Wren soon learns that it isn’t just coincidence that bought the three of them together when he discovers a shoe workshop under the heel of his house that’s holding––or perhaps hiding––three pairs of magical shoes intended for each of them. 


When strangers arrive on Wren’s doorstep looking for the shoes, Wren and his new companions have no choice but to flee to Underfoot, an underground settlement full of magical creatures. In just a matter of days, Wren is immersed into a whole new reality that’ll take him on an incredible journey and reveal a lineage that might be better left secret.

The Magic Shoe Series continues, but this time, Maria Tovar is telling the story. Maria's mind-reading abilities have always been a bit murky, but that changed when she put on the magic shoes that Wren's grandfather made for her. Now she can see things clearly - maybe too clearly since knowing what everyone thinks about her has knocked her self-esteem off kilter.

And that's not the only thing causing her to feel unsettled. While Maria anxiously awaits word from the search party that went looking for her parents, an evil entity lying dormant beneath Underfoot strikes at the heart of the underground settlement. In order to escape the mayhem, Maria and Rusty are pulled into the spirit world and now they are the missing ones. While there, Maria learns she has caught the attention of the mythical Norns, the protectors of the past, present, and future.  


Will Maria find a way back to the material world and discover why the Norns are so interested in her? More importantly, will Maria come to accept that her powers are an asset, not a curse?
