Moving house has become a way of life for fifteen year old Isobel Miller; her father is an Army Major, her mother, a middle aged, pregnant, chain smoking alcholic! But the move to the village of Langham could be the straw that broke the camels back! To thr truculent teenager it might as well have been to 'Timbuktu'. Isobel is resentful of the baby, angry with her mother for dragging her away from civilisation to live in a village which has no street lighting let alone any decent shops.The only light in her miserable existence, her grandfather, story-teller elite, her saviour. And when one of his macabre tales is mentioned in the local paper Isobel is drawn into the depths of evil and devil worship. Her world, and that of everyone around her turns upside down.The cause, a mysterious book, an omen, which once opened and read starts a cataclysmic chain of events and their lives are filled with tragedy and disaster. Salvation comes in the guise of three teenagers-Peter, Oswald and Ariel and the four form an alliance. A bond so strong nothing, can tear apart - nothing except maybe the devil himself ...!

About E M G Wixley

Elizabeth Wixley was born in Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom but moved many times during her childhood. She left home and slept rough on a beach in Cornwall. A year later she found herself in London where she attended Camberwell School of Art. Finally she ended up in Bristol where she began working for the Local Education Authority supporting children experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties back into mainstream education. At the same time she was bringing up her two sons as a single parent and studying for a degree at the University of the West of England. Creative arts have been Elizabeth's passion throughout her life, whether visiting galleries, painting or writing. Now she enjoys nothing more than sharing a good story with others.
