Forced to leave their New York home while their parents fight it out in divorce court, twins Adam and Rachel move to a small English village called Triskellion.

The village is so named because of the chalk circle that is a remnant of the Bronze Age, more than 3,000 years in the past.

That symbol is mysterious enough.  But things get more strange as the twins discover a strange group of "Green Men", artifacts that seem to be pushing themselves up from the ground, a knight's tomb covered in ancient runes, and secrets that no one in the village wants told.

When a boy named Gabriel begins showing up and disappearing all over town, the twins realize that they may be the key to a thousands of years old mystery.

Things are not only mystical and magical in Triskellion; they are downright deadly.  Can they solve the mystery before the townspeople stop them?

Final thoughts:  Takes a few chapters to get into, but it's well worth it.  It's like a roller coaster that starts slow but then gets faster and faster until it suddenly stops.
