’ series, which pitches a bunch of modern-day youngsters against the secrets of the past. It started as normal day, but ended by throwing Rob headlong into the past, where he becomes entwined in the quest to save an ancient chalice. He is plunged into the midst of an adventure that he neither wants nor understands. Although he doesn’t want to believe it, he cannot deny the evidence of his own eyes. Rob witnesses past events and meets a young boy from the 1930s, who seems very familiar to him, the monk John Stell and the first mayor of Barrow, Sir James Ramsden.

He soon discovers that his fate and future and that of his family are in peril if he cannot rescue the sacred chalice from the evil creatures that have beset him.
