Twins Daniel and Rose have accepted their unorthodox life without access to any electronics, but an amazing turn of events suddenly brings reality crashing down on them in Skerryvore by Lee Williams. After leaving his job at a tech firm, the twin’s dad exhibited increasing paranoia but a fire at their London home and a double abduction make them realize he wasn’t crazy. Arriving at an old castle on the coast of Scotland, the twins are drawn into strange circumstances in which they have to learn to center themselves, live in the moment and see things the way they are, not the way they want them to be. With the help of an eccentric old man, Daniel and Rose uncover ancient mysteries that will have a tremendous impact on the future. Unfortunately, there are others who are searching for these artifacts and will stop at nothing to succeed in their evil plans. Can the twins overcome their fears and be strong enough to stand up to overwhelming forces?
