    About "Cliff McNish"

      • Cliff McNish

        I was born in Sunderland, a city in the north east of England.I don t recall too much about my first 8 years of life other than I loved being outdoors especially in the woods near our house I came home every night covered in scratches.My first real book memory is being given C.S Lewis s The Magician s Nephew by my English teacher, Mrs Baldwin I loved that, and all the other Narnia books.So how did I become an author As a parent I was used to making up short and funny stories for my daughter, Rachel When she was about ten, however, she wanted a story about a really, really nasty witch This time I put pen to paper and what started off as a tiny scrap of an idea got bigger and bigger and BIGGER It became The Doomspell.After I finished it, I continued my love affair with fantasy by creating The Silver Sequence which I still think is probably my best and definitely my most original work Following that, I tried to scare everyone half to death with a couple of ghost novels Breathe and The Hunting Ground.I could tell you about myself, but the truth is that perhaps the biggest gift we can give anyone is our imagination and everything important I have to offer you about that is in the novels.

    1. Ok, I liked the first book, I loved the second book and I am really enjoying the third book.The first book was hard to get through, the second book was not as hard.It was, once again, a cliff hanger. So, if you decide to read this series, make sure you borrow all 3.I still stand by my opinion that this book should not be on the shelves for JF it should be YA Fiction at the least.It deals with a lot of death and horrible things and changes happening to these children and it creeps me out a little [...]


    2. About a 3.5 honestly. Enjoyed this one much better than book 1 (which, if you've read past reviews, you know never happens really. It's a rule). Felt like the world building was much better here. Still not a big fan of the specific point of view but they made more sense in this one. Over all, just this one was better. Onward to book 3!


    3. Checked out from the library.Review/Rating:2 out of 52ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.The Roar, devourer of planets, is finally on her way to the planet Earth. Will the changed children be able to stop her from destroying their planet?First, what was I thinking when I thought I should re-read this?!Okay, my feelings haven’t really changed from the first time I read it.I’ll summarize since I don’t want to think that much about this book. Things I didn’t like:- Not as short as the first book [...]


    4. The Silver City is a sequence to the Silver City by Cliff McNish. It was an easy and fast read and like the first book very intriguing too. I was compelled to read on. Again, the new characters here were beyond my creativity's grip and I was in awe of the author's superb originality. It was gross in a way, but I didn’t throw up or something but if I would see the creature he was describing in real life, I might. The battle between good and bad where good always win at the end ~ is here. There [...]


    5. A distressingly suspenseful follow up to Silver Child, this book hunkers down in the terrifying new world that is unfolding in Coldharbour and shows you more of what is happening to the children there so that they can protect the world. You learn what is making the terrifying roar and it is even more frightening than the disembodied roar alone. This book neatly faces issues of sacrifice and self-awareness and really makes you think.


    6. This book was was full of action and had a very good plot. I is the second book in a series of three and if you read it you have to read the first book before or else you will not under stand it. I liked this book and would rate it a 4 out 5 because it was good but it was confusing at some points.


    7. I read this in one sitting. I think I'm still starving for books after my long hiatus. It is the second in the series and I can't wait to read the final installment. I am enjoying the mystery of these kids changing to defend the world.


    8. I really liked this one, and how the transformations continue. It showed excellent quality in the author. I also liked how you got to know the characters better. You really got to see how each character developed emotionally and physically.




    9. I wanted the kids to have more agency -- they kept doing things without knowing why because the big alien things were controlling them.
