The Nightsilver Promise
This compelling fantasy novel, the first in a trilogy, is set in an imaginative world that fuses magic and science. Life is controlled by the Celestial Mechanism, which was created by the Chief Designer and Great Dragons, and sets the path that each person must travel, known as their "track". The dragons tried to deviate from their destiny, so they were banished by knights and order was restored.
When 13-year-old Paisley receives her track, she is dismayed to learn that she will die before her next birthday. To add to her distress, Paisley’s scientist mother is presumed dead following an explosion at the Greenwich Observatory. Desperately wishing she could control her own fate, Paisley is determined to protect her younger brother Dax, who harbours a dangerous secret. Meanwhile, in the dank sewers beneath London, the vengeful Dark Dragon plots her return to power, and will destroy anyone who stands in her way.
Vivid descriptions bring the setting alive, from formidable floating London boroughs to the fortress-like Dragon Vault, which is fiercely protected by Dragon Walker guards. This exciting tale of trust and courage explores the concept of free will and is sure to leave readers desperate for the next instalment.
