Spring (Hyddenworld, Book 1)
by William Horwood
The adventure of a lifetime is just beginning...
It has lain lost and forgotten for fifteen hundred years in the ancient heartland of England - a scrap of glass and metal melded by fierce fire. It is the lost core of a flawless Sphere made by the greatest of the Anglo-Saxon Craeftlords in memory of the one he loved. Her name was Springand, contained in the very heart of this work is a spark from the Fires of Creation.
But while humans have lost their belief in such things, the Hydden, little people existing on the borders of our world, have not. Breaking the silence of centuries they send one of their own, a young boy, Jack, to live among humans in the hope that he may one day find what has been lost for so long. His journey leads him to Katherine, a girl he rescues from a tragic accident - it's a meeting that will change everything.
Only one person understands the historic significance of what is happening. Disgraced astral-archaeologist Arthur Foale has long believed that the myths and legends of past times have a root in reality. His disappearance sets Jack and Katherine's feet on a path that will lead them on an adventure and a world beyond their imagination. It is only through their voyage to the dangerous Hyddenworld that they will realize their destiny, find love and complete the great quest that will save both their worlds from destruction.
