Book I: They Do Things Differently Here Paperback ISBN 978-1908135711 eBook ISBN 978-1908135728 – When the Waldens move to Templewood, teenagers Emily and Peter find that leaving the City for ‘a quieter life in the country’ is the least of their problems. Bubbling beneath the surface of their new home are challenges that could change their world forever …and end ours. Templewood is so isolated it is not on the map and has no communications links with the outside world. The village is home to the Sect, a divided organisation planning an apocalyptic event intended to establish world domination, but which may destroy the planet. Emily and Peter’s arrival is no accident; their parents may know more than they admit. Could Peter really hold the key to trigger a world-changing event? One by one, mysteries are uncovered, until the terrifying objective of the Sect becomes clear. There is little time in which to find who is responsible. How far will they go? Should they be stopped? Can they be stopped? If you were the only ones who could save the world, where would you start? Who would you trust?
Book II: Dust and Shadows Paperback ISBN 978-1908135148 eBook ISBN 978-1908135704 Moving to a new home and school in Templewood was an exciting prospect for Emily and Peter. The reality is proving anything but. Both movement and communications in and out of the closed community are controlled by the Sect, in this remote location unknown to the outside world. Two rival sections within the Sect, the Pros and the Cons, seek the missing third volume of a book of arcane knowledge, which will provide clues to realising a prophecy affecting the future of the planet. Both factions believe Peter holds the key to locating the book and unlocking its secrets. Is there a connection with the prophecy and local farmers developing crops to withstand wide climatic variations? As Emily and Peter uncover more evidence of the prophecy from many mythologies, the enormous scale of the Sect’s intentions is revealed. Will it be too late to disrupt their plan and save the planet?
