This is a riveting tale of two twin teenagers who, following their parents divorce, are sent to stay with their grandmother in a small English village. Sounds boring, until Rachel and Adam discover a legacy that foretold their coming... over three thousand years ago! The legend leads them on an archaeological adventure, where they're faced with paranormal happenings, family secrets, and angry villagers hell-bent on keeping them from discovering the truth. Part science fiction, part historical fiction, part fantasy, and all suspense, this new novel by award-winning British novelist Will Peterson will put your tween on the edge of her chair and keep her there.
