Description

Something's wrong in the House of Truth. It's Monday morning, but everyone seems so tired already. And Nian feels as if he's been eating rutnips for months - which is odd as this is the first time he's had them in ages. Still, Nian is pleased to see his brother Tan when he comes to visit - even though Tan has come to warn him about a problem between the worlds. Everything will seem easier after a good night's sleep, and Nian will think about how to solve things then. Except that when Nian wakes up, it's Monday morning again. Tan hasn't arrived yet, and there are rutnips on the menu once more...Far away in another world, an ancient monument is about to be opened up for the first time in generations. But inside the monument lurks a deadly menace that will threaten everyone around it if it is unleashed - and will even destroy the balance of the worlds. Only Nian has a chance of saving the worlds. And he'll get right on to it. In the morning, as soon as Monday's over...show more

Review quote

Of The Truth Sayer]: 'a thought-provoking, Pullmanesque adventure set in two worlds The Times There are no bounds to Prue's imagination and invention and this is the first of an interlocking series of stories, so much fun and many thrills to come. Adele Geras This delightful fantasy puts one in mind of the early work of Diana Wynne Jones with its light touch, quirky humour and brisk pace that avoids making heavy weather of the mechanics of parallel worlds, whilst at the same time exploring the complex nature of different forms of truth. It should be an absorbing read for both girls and boys of nine and up. School Librarian [Of Cold Tom]: 'This is one of those rare, strange, wonderful books that makes you see the world through different eyes The Guardian This is an excellent book. It is gripping and exciting - you never want to put it down! The Sunday Express An outstanding debut novel The Sunday Times So compelling it almost defies description The Manchester Evening Newsshow more
