When a hole in the ground opened up and swallowed my mum, my life changed forever.

With his mother is in hospital in a coma, Griffin has to stay with the uncle and aunt he hasn’t seen in years. His cousin Cinnamon doesn’t want him there. What’s going on? Is it something to do with the fabulous Aztec knife about to go on display in the museum? Is it really cursed? Griffin and Cinnamon will have to find a way to work together to survive when they are lured down into the secret tunnels…

'Fast-moving, with a great sense of the natural world as well as hints at supernatural beings – good and bad – this is a thoroughly satisfying tale of young people saving the day.' Andrea Reece, Lovereading4kids

‘It's a good book with lots of descriptions and short chapters. I would recommend this to my friends.’ Toppsta

Praise for Sharon's previous book, The Shiver Stone

'A heart-in-the-mouth adventure story, presided over by the mysterious Shiver Stone, with "the gentle swoosh and crackle of the waves" as its soundtrack.' Sue Purkiss

'An unusual and original novel which hooks you in from the start. Young readers will enjoy this mysterious, lyrical adventure with a dark secret at its heart.' Steve Voake

'Beautifully crafted, with a plot that perfectly balances family drama with mystery. The beaches of Pembrokeshire are a wonderful backdrop to adventure!' Elen Caldecott
