The start of a thrilling, action-packed trilogy from Charlie Fletcher, set in a world where statues come to life and dragons and heroes battle.Something dark has woken in the British Museum, and it has stopped time, literally freezing the city in its tracks. The people are there, but unmoving, unseeing - like statues. The statues, on the other hand, can move, and are astonished at what they see.In the Great Ormond Street Hospital, Will and Jo are suddenly plunged into this world of statues - and find themselves pursued by murderous dragons. With help from a couple of friendly statues, Will and Jo must escape the evil that stalks them in the streets of London.With beautiful illustrations by Nick Tankard.

About the Author

Charlie Fletcher has worked in film editing for the BBC on everything from Drama to Current Affairs. He`s written screenplays for Tri-Star, MGM, Paramount and Warner Bros, among others. He continues to write for the movies, and also television. He still thinks that being a film editor is a pretty damn fine way to learn about story-telling in general, and narrative structure and pacing in particular. Charlie also moved into other types of writing including magazine features, a computer game and as both a national Sunday newspaper columnist and restaurant reviewer.He has recently sold the film rights of Stoneheart to Paramount.

Reviews

The first in an action-packed trilogy * The Bolton News * A thrilling, twisting and turning novel that is bound to excite and invigorate all ages. * YA Birmingham * Snappy, exciting and fun. * Bookwitch * Excellent... a new action-packed series... spine-chilling full-page illustrations. * The Sunday Times * After reading these stories the streets of London will never seem the same again. Sure to be a hit with fans of Stoneheart. A well written and fast paced adventure with memorable characters. * We Love This Book * Charlie Fletcher returns to the London of Stoneheart... the result is a shorter, tauter offering that moves along at a great pace; the action really is non-stop. Very exciting. I cannot wait for the next installment - and young readers will feel the same. * * * * * Books for Keeps * Set in the same universe as the fabulous Stoneheart series... rises from the pages in all the richness, humour and pathos of the first series. * Bookbag * A thrilling, twisting and turning novel that is bound to excite and invigorate all ages... the ideal start for younger readers looking to explore new genres. * YA Birmingham *
