A beautifully written and timeless fantasy adventure, perfect for fans of Terry Pratchett and Philip Reeve.

     Ten-year-old Silo Zyco doesn't know much about his relatives -- his father was a mysterious stranger, and the rest of the Zycos were killed in a disaster involving a terrible wave and lots of mud. All he has inherited is a family reputation for thieving, and webbed feet. But Silo, last of the Zycos, does have one thing that others envy. He can see things. Things that will happen in the future. And the people in the Capitol are looking to recruit children just like him to save them from dangers as yet unknown. It could be a glorious future, free from Mud Island and horrible eel suppers. But in Silo's visions, the future is looking very perilous indeed.

About the Author:

VERONICA PEYTON was raised in an obscure Essex village and moved to London as soon as was feasibly possible. She was a graphic designer for a while then taught English in a variety of unglamorous foreign locations, mostly in Asia. She turned to writing after a five year stint in Holloway Prison (as a librarian not an inmate).

Review:

"Silo the Seer`s secret weapon is its humour, which is dry, funny, and threaded right through the story, lightening all its darker corners. It ought to please young readers, older readers looking for something to read to young readers, and anyone else who enjoys this sort of thing . . . I hope there will be many more." -- Philip Reeve, prize-winning author of Mortal Engines "The dry humour and well drawn characters make for an exciting read" * Parents in Touch * "Humour, likeable characters and gripping adventure combine to make this an enjoyable and entertaining read for tweens and early teens. Silo is a great new hero" -- John Millen * South China Morning Post *
