Even when you can’t believe what you’re seeing, you’d better get ready to run for your life, because the Greys have come to town.
Billy’s mum isn’t like other mums. He calls her Sylvie, they move house every few months and she spends all their time together teaching him The Rules of Survival – how to make fire, build shelter and find food. Following the Rules is the only thing Sylvie asks of Billy and the tests get more extreme, until one day she goes too far . . . Whilst Sylvie is getting better, Billy has to live with the dad he’s barely met.
At Dad’s, Billy misses his mum and keeps practicing the Rules, but he also learns new things, like how it feels to make a friend and be part of a different type of family. And then the world changes for ever. People are being infected with a mysterious virus that turns their skin grey. Chaos breaks out and Billy and his family flee the city. Their journey is the ultimate test of survival and Billy knows that this was what Sylvie was preparing him for. She knew what was coming. But once he has gotten his family to safety, Billy still has to find Sylvie and tell her what he’s discovered about the ‘Greys’ – not just to save his family, but the whole world.

Deep within Tanglefern Forest, Moll Pecksniff and her wildcat, Gryff, are waiting for a sign from the Old Magic before they continue their quest to find the last Amulet of Truth and free their world from the Shadowmasks’ terrible magic.
Still missing fellow Tribe member, Alfie, and armed only with a mysterious set of clues, Moll sets out on an adventure across the northern wilderness with Gryff and her friend Siddy at her side. They must brave the Lost Isles, scale the Barbed Peaks and face witches, goblins and giants who lurk at every turn . . . while the Shadowmasks draw ever closer.
Can Moll, Siddy and Gryff find the friend they think they have lost? And do the Tribehave what it takes to defeat the Dark magic once and for all?
Twelve-year-old Molly Pecksniff wakes one night in the middle of the forest, lured there by a recurring nightmare – the one with the drums and the rattles and the masks.
The Dreamsnatcher is waiting.
He has already taken her dreams and now he wants her life.
Because Moll is more important than she knows…
The Oracle Bones foretold that she and Gryff, a wildcat that has always been by her side, are the only ones who can fight back against the Dreamsnatcher’s dark magic. Suddenly everything is at stake, and Moll is drawn into a world full of secrets, magic and adventure.
In the snowy kingdom of Erkenwald, whales glide between icebergs, wolves hunt on the tundra and polar bears roam the glaciers. But the people of this land aren’t so easy to find – because Erkenwald is ruled by an evil Ice Queen and the tribes must stay hidden or risk becoming her prisoners at Winterfang Palace.
Join Eska, a girl who breaks free from a cursed music box, and Flint, a boy whose inventions could change the fate of Erkenwald forever, as they journey to the Never Cliffs and beyond in search of an ancient, almost forgotten, song with the power to force the Ice Queen back.
This is a story about an eagle huntress, an inventor and an organ made of icicles. But it is also a story about belonging, even at the very edges of our world . . .
Moll Pecksniff, together with Gryff, the wildcat that’s always by her side, and her best friends Alfie and Sid, must sneak past smugglers, outwit mer creatures and crack secret codes to save the Old Magic. With more at stake than ever before and the dark magic rising fast, can Moll and her friends stop the Shadowmasks before it’s too late?
