Merlin's Keep
Madeleine Brent

This absorbing and mysterious novel opens in the remote regions of the Himalayas, where the strange and lovely heroine, Jani, has been brought up by a runaway English soldier on the borders of Tibet. Both Jani’s past and that of her soldier protector are shrouded in a mystery that grows ever deeper when she is taken away to a new and frightening world – a London orphanage. She becomes one of the family in a Hampshire household. It is here that her past is gradually uncovered, and she becomes locked in a macabre struggle, long prophesied by the High Lama of her Tibetan youth, against the strange and terrifying powers of the Silver Man when she returns to the mountains of Tibet.
