“Everything here hates you. The trees long to consume you, the ground to
swallow you, the plants to poison you, and as for the creatures who live
here… Your only chance of survival is to do exactly as I say. Clear?”
Twins Cathy and Alan are thrilled to be asked by the king of the Diamonds
to enter the Great Forest on their eleventh birthday to complete the
cleansing of the land. After all, Queen Rose is dead and all darkness gone
from the forest. But when their home is attacked by a horde of vicious
boars, and Alan and Cathy taken unwillingly into the forest, the twins
realise that evil remains in the Great Forest. Now they are faced with a
terrible choice: escape from their captors and take their chances among the
forest dangers, or find out who is waiting for them in the centre of the
forest, and why?
Cathy and Alan are up against the deadliest battle of their lives, against
the forest, the monsters, …and each other.
“The Lucky Diamond is a story which leaves adults and children enthralled. It has a plot which is difficult to leave. Once you start the story, you feel the need to finish it as soon as possible. The plot is engrossing, there are severe twists to the story and lots of sub plots which makes one very curious about what will happen next.”
