Calder Cove, a quiet seaside village... or is it? 

When a strange medieval castle appears out of nowhere, the town's folk are thrown into utter turmoil. Time reveals that the building is a school - one where children are locked away, a cursed ring is stolen, a boy vanishes and a golden door materializes inside an empty room. Is the village and its people doomed? 

A fantasy read for all the family.
