A fast, furious and sometimes terrifying adventure from the author of Sebastian Darke: Prince Of Fools. Indiana Jones meets The Mummy!
Philip Caveney was born in 1951 in Prestatyn, North Wales. His father was in the R.A.F, so during his childhood his family moved to a new military base every couple of years. He has had several adult thrillers published in the past, but has now turned his hand successfully to children's books. His Sebastian Darke series has sold in 10 languages and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Prize. He lives in Manchester with his wife and 14 year old daughter.
"A smashing adventure story, well controlled and well written" -- Chris Stephenson Carousel "This is an exciting and readable book, and Philip Caveny has a wry gift for instilling sympathy for his minor characters" The School Librarian
