The Moon Stealers and the Quest for the Silver Bough (Book 1) The first in a series of four books that complete the story of The Moon Stealers.

In the small Yorkshire town of Parsley Bottom, Peter Crisp, a boy with an unusual gift of being able to see things that others cannot, goes missing after spending the night in a graveyard. Two of Peter's school friends attempt to find him but come across some mysterious engravings which propel them on an adventure beyond their imagination. By unravelling codes and riddles they journey within the bowels of Edinburgh Castle as they attempt to find the key to Peter’s disappearance.

Meanwhile MI6 operative Steven Knight is sent from London to investigate a meteorite landing which, he discovers, contains a bacteria within its core that is alien to our planet.

The bacteria quickly evolves into a deadly threat. The children not only need to find Peter, they need to save the entire world while they’re at it.

This cult fantasy adventure appeals to both children and adults and highlights the genuine possibility of what impact alien bacteria could have on our planet and the ecosystem on it. Would the inherent characteristic of human survival kick in or could the Earth be contaminated and populated by other forms? The genuine scientific and astrological information that exists within this novel gives it a realistic edge that will leave you considering the possibility of other life forms and parallel worlds for days after you finish it.
