About The Whistlers in the Dark
The year is 158 AD, and Scotland is divided. A Roman legion has invaded and occupied land belonging to the Damnonii tribe, and twelve-year-old Jinny has a personal vendetta against the oppressive 'metal men' on the other side of the wall. But as she puts her revenge plan into action, things start to spiral out of control. Headstrong Jinny awakens an ancient legend that theatens to bring destruction down on them all... Only she and Felix, a young, aspiring soldier from the Roman camp, have the power to put things right. Can they put their differences aside - before it's too late?
The Whistlers in the Dark is a wonderfully atmospheric novel that will captivate readers and transport them through time, right into the middle of the Damnonii homeland where the veil between magic and reality is paper-thin. The book also offers a fascinating insight into life as part of a tribe in 2nd century Scotland. History, magic and folklore come together with endearing protagonists against a backdrop of the wild Scottish landscape to create the perfect autumnal middle-grade read.
