The Lovereading4Kids comment

Told at a cracking pace this modern fantasy tells how three children from different countries are brought together by the force of the mysterious Ley lines to fulfil an ancient prophecy. Working together, they must unlock a treasure with unimagined power before the forces of the dark catch up with them.


Quicksilver by Samira Osman

Dark powers from the past are searching for three extraordinary children... Wolfie, Tala and Zi'ib were born on the same day on opposite sides of the world. They are brought together by astonishing coincidence - or so it seems. But only they can fulfil an ancient prophecy - and find a treasure of incalculable power. Can the mysterious energies that flow through the Earth's prehistoric leylines be controlling their lives? And will they discover the chilling truth of who they really are?
