A Key - lost since the dawn of civilization - is about to be found... A mysterious, isolated house awaits sixteen-year-old Fern and her brother Will for the summer holidays. As the old house reveals its secrets, their familiar world starts to fracture, giving access to a magical and corrupt land destroyed thousands of years ago. For hidden in the house is a talisman which has been sought by the forces of good and evil for millennia. And only someone possessed of the Gift can use it. Soon, Fern finds herself being courted by the enigmatic wanderer, Ragginbone, and the sinister art-dealer, Javier Holt, who know that she has the Gift. Both want her to find the talisman, and use it to unlock the door, but what awaits her on the other side...? This is English fantasy at its finest. Prospero's Children steps into the gap that exists between The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Clive Barker's Weaveworld, and is destined to become a modern classic. ...but what kind of door will it open?
