Description

Ten-year-old Silo Zyco hasn't had the easiest start to life. His father was (probably) `Aquinus the Accursed' - wanted for dog-theft, whereabouts unknown. His relatives all perished in a disaster involving a terrible wave and lots of mud. All he has inherited is the family reputation for thieving, and webbed feet. And his only friend has been killed, tragically mistaken for a large rodent. But Silo does have one thing that others envy. He can see things. Things that will happen in the future. And the people in the Capital are looking to recruit children just like him. An incredible adventure is about to begin . . .show more

Review quote

"Silo the Seer`s secret weapon is its humour, which is dry, funny, and threaded right through the story, lightening all its darker corners. It ought to please young readers, older readers looking for something to read to young readers, and anyone else who enjoys this sort of thing . . . I hope there will be many more." -- Philip Reeve, prize-winning author of Mortal Engines "The dry humour and well drawn characters make for an exciting read" * Parents in Touch * "Humour, likeable characters and gripping adventure combine to make this an enjoyable and entertaining read for tweens and early teens. Silo is a great new hero" -- John Millen * South China Morning Post *show more
