Kerry Wilkinson was one of two things as a child. If you ask him, he was a well-meaning, slightly hyperactive young man with an active imagination. If you ask his mother and/or teachers, he was a bit of a pain in the bum. Before the age of flat screen televisions, laptops, mobiles phones, hover boards and the internet, there were BBC B Microcomputers and there were real books with actual paper pages. Really! Kerry grew up playing ropey-looking computer games that you needed a keyboard for, being rubbish at football, and reading science fiction and fantasy novels. The Silver Blackthorn trilogy is Kerry's first fantasy work. His other series, the Jessica Daniel crime books, are also published by Pan Macmillan. He is also definitely not a pain in the bum.

Who can she trust and will she ever find her way out?
