The Lovereading4Kids comment

A rich and magical tale that is utterly compelling. The main protagonist - Fin - is cleverly drawn with huge appeal to teens. He draws you into the story of two parallel universes - two very different Londons in which from one, a person vital to the existence of both worlds has been kidnapped. Unless Fin can find the Storyholder, the keeper of the Five Eternal Stories which weave the two worlds together their worlds will cease to exist. His journey is a long and very dark one that's full of foreboding but brilliantly told. This is a book that will remain etched in your memory long after you've finished it while waiting for the second in the sequence.

Synopsis

The Double-edged Sword: The Nowhere Chronicles Book 1 by Sarah Silverwood

'Sixteen's an interesting age: not quite a fully grown man, but not a kid anymore neither. Anything is possible when you're sixteen.' Finmere Tingewick Smith was abandoned on the steps of the Old Bailey. Under the guardianship of the austere Judge Harlequin Brown and the elderly gentlemen of Orrery House, Fin has grown up under a very strange set of rules. He spends alternate years at two very different schools and now he's tired of the constant lies to even his best friends, to hide the insanity of his double life. Neither would believe the truth! But on his sixteenth birthday, everything changes. The Judge is killed, stabbed in the chest with a double-edged sword that's disturbingly familiar, and from that moment on, Fin is catapulted into an extraordinary adventure. Through the Doorway in Fin's London, a hole in the boundaries of Existence, lies another London -- and now both are in grave danger. For the Knights of Nowhere have kidnapped the Storyholder, the keeper of the Five Eternal Stories which weave the worlds together. Because of the Knights' actions, a black storm is coming, bringing madness with it. Fin may be just 16, but he has a long, dark journey ahead of him if he is to rescue the Storyholder and save Existence!

About the Author

Sarah Silverwood lives and writes in Buckinghamshire, England. She has had a lot of jobs - some of which were mind-numbingly dull and some of which definitely weren't - but has decided that writing books is by far the best of them. She has a cat instead of a husband and children, because apparently the latter get slightly irritable if you take off for a few days' adventure without warning, as she has a habit of doing. A cat is likely to sleep through it. Most of the time she can be found somewhere in her own imagination. She likes it in there. Good stuff happens.
