Comments & Further Information

A First UK edition hardback with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing.  Unread but very tiny bump to top right-hand corner of front board, and top left-hand corner of rear board.  The dust jacket is complete and still shows the price.

Although an established author of adult books, this is Sheila O’Flanagan’s first children’s novel.

SYNOPSIS:  “”On a typical afternoon, teenage Joe is being chased by bullies from school when he accidentally runs through a portal to another world.  He finds himself in a training camp for a group of teenage boys and girls who will become Runners.

Each cycle, three Runners are sent to place the power sources that will secure the shield that protects their land, Carcassia, and keeps the enemy Kabanians at bay.  Once they’ve achieved their objective, a toxin is released into their bodies and they die.  No one is permitted to return through the shield.  And nobody can remain in the enemy territory.

Joe is sent on the next Run, and he’s hoping that he will find a way back to earth.”
