From the Inside Flap
Lose yourself in the sheer magic of Cliff McNish's fabulous Doomspell trilogy - The Doomspell, The Scent of Magic, The Wizard's Promise. In a blaze of light, a rush of wind, a scrabble of claws, Rachel and her brother, Eric, are ripped through a wall and hurtled to a terrifying place. Like thousands of other children before them, they have been snatched away by the Witch. But Rachel and Eric discover they have astonishing gifts. Rachel is a spell-maker who can fly, change shape and scent magic across other lands and oceans. Eric is a destroyer of spells. The Witch has met her match, but she will stop at nothing to enslave them and slay her old adversaries, the Wizards. The fate of all children lies in the balance. When their magic is released, will they be able to battle against the huge army of invading witches? Rachel and Eric embark on a journey from which there may be no return, their extraordinary skills and courage will save our world, or grant the witches the final triumph they have long awaited. Dazzling, brilliant story-telling from Cliff McNish that makes for compulsive reading. Cliff McNish's highly successful Doomspell trilogy, comprising The Doomspell, The Scent of Magic and The Wizard's Promise, won him an instant and avid readership and he was hailed as 'a great new voice in writing for children' (The Bookseller). The trilogy is published in seventeen languages around the world. Cliff is working on a new trilogy, The Silver Sequence, the first two volumes of which, The Silver Child and Silver City are now available. Cliff was born in Sunderland in the Northeast of England. He enjoys playing golf, walking up mountains and eating as much hot and spicy food as possible. Cliff is married and has a teenage daughter, Rachel.
