In Book Three of the Silver Sequence, the Roar descends upon Coldharbour, where millions of children huddle in search of protection.

Milo, the silver child, is the first line of Earth's defense. Under his wings, Helen probes the Roar's mind with her gift of telepathy, searching for a weakness. The twins at last free the mysterious Protector from the ocean floor, while Walter strives to keep everyone alive while they search for a weapon that will destroy the Roar. Only Thomas can release that weapon--if he can finally discover the true purpose of his remarkable gift.

Meanwhile, from Earth's inner core, Carnac, the Roar's firstborn, begins to emerge. Only Tanni and the Unearthers stand in his way...

About the Author:

Written when he was almost forty, Cliff McNish's Doomspell Trilogy won him an instant and avid readership and has been published in 19 languages around the world. Since then, he has continued to write fiction, including The Silver Sequence, Breathe, and Angel, and has been hailed as a "great new voice in writing for children" (The Bookseller). Mr. McNish was born in northeastern England. He enjoys playing golf, walking up mountains, and eating as much hot and spicy food as possible. He is married and has a teenage daughter, whose demand for a scary story led to the idea for his first book.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–8—In this third book in the series, the children of Coldharbour are faced with the challenge of defeating the mysterious, monsterlike creature known only as "The Roar" from destroying Earth. Back again are Milo, a gigantic winged-boy whose body serves as a shield over Coldharbour; Helen, who can enter people's minds; Thomas, with his powerful beauty; Walter the giant; the insect twins, Freda and Emily; and Jenny, the young girl who can transform herself into a weapon specifically created to destroy her enemies. The story is told in the alternate voices of the characters, enabling readers to get into their minds and learn of their fears and triumphs. Often the most interesting of these interior monologues is The Roar herself, at once a fearful, horrifying monster, and also a protective mother. The plot is fast paced and gripping in this exciting blend of science fiction and fantasy. Fans of the first two books will not be disappointed by this installment and aficionados of A Wrinkle in Time will take pleasure in hearing about this series.—Marie C. Hansen, New York Public Library
