Cliff McNish was born in Sunderland, but has spend most of his life in the southeast of England. His daughter Rachel loved to hear stories from an early age. The Doomspell started as one of these. 'But before I knew what was happening,' says Cliff, 'the whole magical world of Ithrea just wanted to come to life in a bigger way. It wanted to live!'From School Library Journal:
Grade 5 Up–McNish continues his clever blend of science fiction and fantasy. The Silver Child (Carolrhoda, 2005) saw six children drawn by some unknown force to Coldharbour, where they each discovered extraordinary abilities that would help protect them from an approaching danger known as the Roar. Now, children from every corner of the planet are descending on Coldharbour. With Milo–the silver child and one of the original six–protecting the others from the sky in his massive, angel-like form, the remaining five must keep the newcomers from new threats hidden deep in the Earths core. It is through the voices of Thomas, the healer, and Helen, the psychic, that McNishs story truly takes shape. Though the other characters can be a little flat at times, these two continue to move the action forward. For readers looking for something imaginative and distinctive, Silver City will not disappoint.–Lisa Marie Williams, Fairfax County Public Library System, Reston, VA
