Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
The first volume of Maurice Gee's acclaimed trilogy wherein Susan and Nick are transported to the terrifying land of O... <br> <br> 'Nick had seen the birthmark on Susan's wrist. It had two parts. Each was shaped like a tear drop, curved like a moon. One was bright red and the other golden brown.' <br> <br> Susan had always been a bit odd and never really got on with her cousin Nick, but the mark on her wrist draws them together in a frightening adventure. They are summoned to the beautiful land of O in a last-ditch attempt to save the planet from cruel Otis Claw and his followers, the evil Halfmen, who have lost every trace of human goodness and kindness.<br> <br> Also available as an eBook
Novel for young adults.
