In the first chapter of Simsian the scene opens with the story of James, a boy from 21st century Hastings, and his friend who are 'caught' exploring the abandoned Hasting Pier. As the story unfolds James inexplicably arrives on the shores of Simsian where in a confused state he stumbles across the other 'Islanders'. The story of Simsian, rising from those seas of dreams into an island, was to become not only the home but also the prison of children who were swept to it from different eras and backgrounds. Faced with the challenge of survival against the battle of the unknown and the creatures that dwelt alongside them, the 'Islanders' share a unique bond, the desire to get 'home'. Simsian, a breath taking story, will take the mind beyond the realms of imagination, captivating readers from the age 8 to infinity.
