Mae hon yn nofel afaelgar sydd yn mynnu sylw’r darllenydd o’r tudalennau cyntaf pan, yn hwyr un noson mae dieithryn yn rhoi parsel dirgel i Seren Rhys ar orsaf trenau Fictorianaidd. Gyda’r agoriad yma, mae’r awdur yn sefydlu naws hudol a chynhyrfus y stori o’r cychwyn cyntaf. Mae Seren yn edrych ymlaen at ddechrau bywyd newydd ym Mhlas-y-Fran ond mae’n dod yn amlwg yn gyflym iawn nad yw pethau fel mae hi’n disgwyl. Yn y nofel hon mae Catherine Fisher yn ein tywys  i fyd o chwedlau a dirgelwch sydd yn bachu diddordeb y darllenydd drwyddi draw.

Testun bydd yn tanio diddordeb ar draws y cwricwlwm ond yn enwedig ym meyseydd: Ieithoedd, Llythrennedd a Chyfathrebu, Gwyddoniaeth a Thechnoleg a’r Celfyddydau Mynegiannol.


This is an arresting novel that catches the attention of the reader from the first pages when, late one night, a stranger gives Seren Rhys a mysterious parcel in a Victorian train station. With this opening, the author sets the story’s magical and exciting spirit from the very beginning. Seren is looking forward to the start of a new life in Plas-y-Fran but it very quickly becomes evident that things aren’t as she expects. In this novel Catherine Fisher takes us to a world of legends and mystery that grabs the attention of the reader throughout.

A subject that will stimulate interest across the curriculum but especially in the areas of: Languages, Literacy and Communication, Science and Technology and Expressive Arts.
