Davy, open that door and you are dead.
He doesn't know it yet, but fourteen-year-old Davy Taylor is about to have the worst day of his life.
With a journalist for a father and a scientist mother, family life has always been nomadic: France, South America and now, London. Coming home from school, he collapses in the street. More pain than he'd ever thought possible... a brain haemorrhage? Is he dying? He staggers home. Surely his parents can help? But they're gone. The flat's empty. He's alone.
And then the voice in his head starts talking.
Davy finds himself facing a powerful underground group who have lived for hundreds of years—and want to see him dead. The future of human existence is in the balance...
