A tale of Alderley When Colin and Susan are pursued by eerie creatures across Alderley Edge, they are saved by the Wizard. He takes them into the caves of Fundindelve, where he watches over the enchanted sleep of one hundred and forty knights.

The Wizard has been searching for the stone for more than 100 years, but the forces of evil are closing in, determined to possess and destroy its special power. Colin and Susan realise at last that they are the key to the Weirdstone's return. But how can two children defeat the Morrigan and her deadly brood?

About the Author:

From AudioFile:

Philip Madoc's narration has a tone of secrecy, as if he has a story to tell that only the listener will hear. In the classic style of young people's fantasy, the young protagonists of this book, a sister and brother, must be brave and act under extraordinary circumstances to save the world as we know it. Madoc catches the kids' feelings of anxiety and disbelief at what is being asked of them. His sense of engagement is contagious, and the air of suspense is well deserved. No flashy tricks, sleight of hand, or easy answers will be found in this enchanting tale of good and evil. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
