This trilogy follows three generations of young Singers as they join forces with the half-human creatures of their world to battle the evil Khizpriest and the power of dark crystal. The three books are best read in order but there are gaps of several years between the stories so you can also enjoy them as standalone novels. While clean enough for younger readers, these books are more appreciated by readers aged 12+.

* SONG QUEST won the Branford Boase Award, awarded annually in the UK to the best debut novel for young readers published that year. At a glittering ceremony in London, judge Jacqueline Wilson presented my editor Barry Cunningham and me with our awards... a small black box, made to look like book, with a silver butterfly on the cover and a silver plaque inside. (Barry has since collected a whole row of these awards for editing other winning debut novels, but mine will always be special because it was the first!)
