On a night of frost and ice, Cari falls from the sky, cast out of her world and into ours – and Australia’s Cassidy Heights will never be the same. For the secrets she bears are more dangerous than Jake could possibly imagine.
Before meeting Cari, 15-year-old Jake is less concerned with the unusual weather, and more with the ice forming in his dad’s new relationship and the fact the girl he likes is dating his best friend.
Then Jake finds Cari, lost and alone. Who is she? What has she got to do with the sudden frost, and the silver city that has appeared in the sky? And what does his elderly neighbour, Mrs Henders, know about it all?
But the secrets Cari bears are more dangerous than Jake can ever imagine. And the fate of Cassidy Heights – and that of the City of Silver Light – now rests in his hands.
To celebrate September's release of the third book in the series ('The Wall Between the Worlds') Hague Publishing are releasing all three books in paperback.

"This novel is original, a very fast read (which may not be perceived as a benefit for some readers!) and thoroughly engrossing. The characters are realistic and the story very well told. I often say I'm not a big fan of series because they typically seem excessive to me - like an author is milking a story rather than doing the hard work of coming-up with something new, but some series are good enough to be classed as exceptions and based on this first volume, this one is definitely exceptional. I'm very much looking forward to reading the sequel."
