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.
No one will be there to meet him.
A return to old-fashioned storytelling, this is a novel about magic and belief and the end of childhood from debut novelist James Treadwell.
Advent is available now, and the second book in the trilogy, Anarchy , is published in hardback at the start of July.
