• For centuries it has been locked away Lost beneath the sea Warded from earth, air, water, fire, spirits, thought and sight. But now magic is rising to the world once more. And a boy called Gavin, who thinks only that he is a city kid with parents who hate him, and knows only that he sees things no one else will believe, is boarding a train, alone, to Cornwall. When he arrives, there is no one there to meet him.

  • I am everything no longer forgotten.I banish forgetting.My seed has grown and become prophecy.Truth walks the world above.Magic is risen to the world once more.
    In Cornwall, they have seen it rise: in an angel of death and endless, unseasonal snow.Across the ocean, on a remote Canadian island, the blood and offerings and smoke of England seem nothing more than distant rumours of hysteria.Until the girl disappears. And the whale comes. And The Plague spreads.And nothing is as it was before.

  • All the men are dead - now it's the boys' turn. On a tiny archipelago, cut off from the rest of the world by a cursed sea, a handful of survivors live a precarious existence, clinging to their memories of the time before magic and their hope that those times will return.As far as he knows, Rory is the only boy left.Then the man comes, weaving his tales of a quest to find a powerful ring, and Rory finds himself embarking on a journey through terrors and marvels, once more in the world of men.And the moment of reckoning, when it comes, will bring an end to stories unimaginably older than his own.
