  • Jack Tideswell’s parents died in a tragic diving accident while exploring the underwater ruins of the Pharos lighthouse in Egypt. So Jack wants nothing to do with adventure. Until, that is, a seagull delivers a strange disc – addressed to him in his own handwriting – and he’s catapulted briefly into another time.
    In the blink of an eye, all kinds of magic are let loose, and Jack finds himself aboard an ocean liner in the throes of a Titanic-like disaster. It all links back to Pharos, the seventh wonder of the world. An ancient power needs to be restored. Can Jack learn to navigate time before it’s too late to save the one person who can help him unravel the secrets of the disc?
    Whether he likes it or not, there’s no more hiding away. And no looking back. Especially when Alpha is watching. A wolf who sees all there is to see...
    For readers aged 10 plus, The Mirror of Pharos is a contemporary fantasy with the inventiveness of Philip Reeve’s sci-fi, the excitement of J.K. Rowling’s plots and the timeless quality of a Philippa Pearce classic.
    ‘A wonderful mix of magic and reality that reminds me of the early books in the Harry Potter series.’ The Bookbag
