The Silver Sequence
CLIFF MCNISH IN CONVERSATION WITH PHILIP ARDAGH ABOUT THE SILVER SEQUENCE
Six children leave the comfort of their homes far behind. They are drawn to Coldharbour an eerie wasteland of wind, rats, seagulls and rubbish tips.
Emily and Freda, the twins, scuttle bright-eyed and insect-like in search of the others. They find Thomas half-starving on a food tip. They discover the giant boy, Walter, his hands buried in the ashes of a fire. Helen, who can read minds, reaches Coldharbour at the height of a storm to join them. And at the centre of it all is the luminous Milo, whose eyes see everything and whose skin is hot and bright with silver.
Each of them has a unique gift, but they must learn to use their skills fast. Drawing ever close in a maelstrom of fury is something vast and dreadful that wants to destroy them all.
