Five Children on holiday in the Gwynant valley, North Wales, explore a cave on the hill Dinas Emrys and find themselves  back in the year 1511. They meet Maroth the wizard, and Merric, his companion from a far off world who is stranded on Earth.

Maroth cannot help them, but he takes them to Elgrin, the leader of the Wizard’s Council. The children have to face many dangers on their way to Elgrin, but they eventually manage to meet him. Elgrin tells them of the key to the Gateway of Time. The children then have to search for the key and find it only to have it stolen from them by the evil magician Drascobal. They follow Drascobal and the key is somehow retrieved  but cannot now be used. A twist in the tale helps bring about a thrilling conclusion to the adventure.

A few of you may know that some terrible news was received a few months back about my Dad. And when I met the author, he informed me that a lot of the funds from these books (so a lot of the money you spend buying it) actually goes to Cancer Research. And more places where you can buy the books, and more information can be found on the website.
