More monsters. More magic. More sibling rivalry!

Siblings Morton, James, and Melissa thought they were done with the monstrous refugees from the popular horror comic "Scare Scape." It's not the first time they've been wrong . . .

When the town of Dimvale is overrun with two-headed mutant rats, Morton Clay knows that dark magic is to blame. And when his classmates get their hands on impossible gadgets like X-ray specs and anti-gravity lasers, he realizes the trouble is just beginning.

Morton and his siblings, James and Melissa, are the only ones who can stop the chaos. But should they, if it means eliminating magic from the world? As Morton begins to fight magic with magic, he's not so sure . . .
