Book Two: Serpents Gold
Serpent’s Gold comes out on 7th July 2011. Go here to find out about the mysteries of the Knights Templar, Chladni patterns and dowsing which feature in the story.
When I was doing the research for both books I came across some pretty strange coincidences and this one sent a real tingle down my spine.
Having decided that Zemogen would have its headquarters at Battersea Power Station I tried to get permission to visit the building. I was refused so I went on line looking for images of the interior.
Imagine my surprise when I found this shot (left) of the marble floored entrance hall decorated with the symbol that the children keep stumbling across in book one: the eight point star that represents the cardinal points of the compass, the pattern of the leys at Thornham, the directions of the winds, the turning wheel of the solstices and the stars of hammered gold worn by every Lupan explorer!
