Eleven-year-old Jade is from a normal suburban background but longs to be different - and is terrified when she finds that she is. Her world is thrown into chaos when she discovers she is one of seven gifted children who are the result of a secret government experiment intended to find a cure for inherited diseases; an experiment that was hijacked by the sinister Dr Kobal for his own purposes. But are those purposes science or sorcery?

Kidnapped and transported suddenly from normality to a world of angels and demons, robotic beasts and hunters and hunted, Jade is plunged into a deadly battle to save the seven children's souls ...
Paul Bryers is a highly acclaimed adult novel writer (The Used Woman's Book Club, The Prayer of the Bone) and a film, radio and theatre director and writer with substantial credits. These are his first children's novels.
