      Straka, Helen, Martin and the twins are supernatural children - the forerunners of a new evolution. They just don't know it yet. But something happens to bring the children together and each discovers they have a secret gift - something of magical intensity that they will learn how to use. Together their powers are formidable - quite different from anything the world has seen before, and they must decide how to use them and to what end. As in The Doomspell trilogy, Cliff's characters really are 'the children next door' until they discover the powers they possess and he sweeps them and the reader into his worlds of magical fantasy, writing exciting, breathtaking adventures with richly imagined, vividly drawn characters, and an infectious energy, warmth and humour.
