THE NUMBER ONE SCI-Fi / DYSTOPIAN SERIES FOR TEENS

“If The Hunger Games and Veronica Roth’s Divergent Series have left you eager for more, The Moon Stealers is the next big Urban Fantasy series…”

The Yorkshire town of Parsley Bottom has a problem…
Peter Crisp, a boy with an unusual gift of being able to see things that others cannot, goes missing after spending the night in a graveyard. Two of Peter’s school friends, join forces with a Knight of King Arthur to attempt to find him but come across some mysterious engravings which propel them on an adventure beyond their imagination.
Meanwhile MI6 operative Steven Knight is sent from London to investigate a meteor landing site, but Steven is advised by his own boss not to trust the puppeteers that hold the strings to his investigation. Within the core of the meteor is an alien bacteria that evolves at an alarming rate that not only puts Steven’s life at risk, but the entire human race.
By unravelling ancient codes and riddles the children journey through the bowels of Edinburgh Castle as they attempt to find the key to Peter’s disappearance. The children not only need to save Peter, they need to save the world while they’re at it.

A Personal Note from the Author
The idea for the Moon Stealers arrived, quite unexpectedly one morning when myself and my son were getting ready. He asked me to tell him a story so I randomly said, ‘Have you heard the one about the Moon Stealers?’ Only a wild and exciting story would be good enough for my son, so during our time in the bathroom we threw loads of ideas at each other and concocted an early form of the story. Later, as I started to write it down so that he could draw some pictures to go with it, I found the ideas grew organically and two years later, the four book series was complete.
