Cliff McNish is an English author of primarily fantasy and supernatural novels for middle-grade readers and young adults. McNish has won numerous awards for his work. A marked departure from the more traditional fantasy of the Doomspell books, The Silver Sequence concerns 6 children with unusual powers: Tom (a ‘giver of beauty’), Helen (a telepath), Walter (a giant), twin girls Freda and Alice, and Milo, a boy who finally turns into a being with silver wings seven miles long.

The Silver Child book. But for some strange, inexplicable reason The Silver Child by Cliff McNish has stuck with me. Six children leave the comfort of their homes  . And by that I mean: I remember it vaguely but don't count it among my "impressive" memories of the book.

The Silver Child is the exciting first novel in Cliff McNish's heart-stopping new trilogy. Six children experience life-altering changes and leave the comfort of their homes far behind. They are drawn to Coldharbour-an eerie wasteland of wind, rats, seagulls, and garbage dumps

The Silver Child is the exciting first novel in Cliff McNish's heart-stopping new trilogy. They are drawn to Coldharbour-an eerie wasteland of wind, rats, seagulls, and garbage dumps. Each child has a unique gift, but they must quickly learn to use their new skills. For drawing ever closer is something vast and dreadful set to destroy them all.

The Silver Child is an odd book, one in which words often seem deliberately and wonderfully incongruous

The Silver Child is an odd book, one in which words often seem deliberately and wonderfully incongruous. What McNish is interested in exploring is the minutiae; the emotion.

They are drawn to Coldharbour - an eerie wasteland of wind, rats, seagulls and rubbish tips. They find Thomas on a food tip. The gentle giant boy Walter joins them and so does Helen, who can read minds. Listen to books in audio format instead of reading.

Cliff McNish has once again created one of these works, but in a different style from his Doomspell trilogy. The book 'The Silver Child' delves into the child's psyche in a way that rivals Golding's 'The Lord of the Flies,' while at the same time it maintains a level of simplicity that makes it flow along its timeline. In this book, the first of three, we are introduced to the main characters, Milo, Thomas, Emily, Freda, Walter, and Helen, from the viewpoint of one of them in each chapter. A must read - and I do mean must! Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 9 years ago. When I first saw The Silver Child, I was a little hesitant to pick it up. Normally I do read sci-fi - avidly - but the cover of this book was a little bit weird for me. However, curiosity won out, and I got the book. I could always return it, right? Once I started reading, however, all thoughts of returning it flew out of my mind.

The Silver Child is book 1 in a heart-stopping sequence. The Silver Child - Cliff McNish. Philip Ardagh, The Guardian. This remarkable and original new fantasy series should appeal to a wide audience. An amazing book, a completely original plot with some of the most intriguing characters I’ve ever come across. No one could have eaten as much as Milo ate that afternoon. It was Sunday lunch, and as usual the smells of cooking had given everyone an appetite – but surely nobody expected Milo to eat it all.

Drawn to a wasteland of garbage dumps called Coldharbour, six children undergo mysterious transformations and band together to face an unknown enemy.

When I first saw The Silver Child, I was a little hesitant to pick it up. Normally I do read sci-fi - avidly - but the cover of this book was a little bit weird for me. However, curiosity won out, and I got the book. I could always return it, right? Once I started reading, however, all thoughts of returning it flew out of my mind. I can honestly say that The Silver Child is one of the best books I have ever read. From the first paragraph, the plot drew me in, raising questions, keeping me in suspense, and, most of all, puzzling me. What kind of amazing mind could create a story as wonderful as that? And write it so well, too! I felt like I was in the story with the characters - they all seemed so real! Now that, to me, is what makes a good book - believable characters, interesting and active plot - and this book has all of those things. I finished the entire book in 3 hours and dashed back to the library to get the next book (The Silver City, if anyone's interested). I would recommend The Silver Child to any sci-fi or fantasy lover - or really anyone, it's that good. Read it!

Finally found the hard to find in excellent condition or new book that began my son's love for reading when he was young. Also bought its 2 sequels of the trilogy; brand new. Can't wait to see his face on Christmas Day!

I saw the spine of this book in my library, and the title drew my interest. The description was vague, and the cover terrified me, but I wanted to at least try it. I devoured it. I checked it out in my school library in second period, and had finished it by sixth. I have recommended it to three people so far, and made a friend of mine read several parts I loved. I plan on recommending it o even more people. I don't know how to describe the plot, but the emotion was so strong and raw. It made me feel like my chest couldn't hold my heart at some times, and at others, I was nearly in tears, feeling like I was going to cave in. The character Walter... oh my goodness just mentioning his name made me remember that scene toward the end with the river (people who have read this, you know what I am talking about) and I feel like I'm going to cry now, he was so sweet and I think only some one without any heart could not adore Walter. This was the type of book where I would get distracted from the words because my mind was running wild imagining more, and that is a good thing! I am currently on a MUST READ NEXT BOOK mission, and I cannot wait to find out what happens next!

My 10 year old son was not much of a reader until he discovered this book. One day while we were in the book store for me, I "strongly encouraged" my son to select a book. He reluctantly grabbed Silver Child off of the shelf simply because of the picture, and said "This will do". He hadn't even glanced at the text. He just couldn't put it down!

This book made a reader out of my son! Two years later, and he still hasn't stopped reading, and often I have to insist that he stop reading and go to bed! We went on to buy the rest of the books in the trilogy (which we had to get from the UK as they weren't available in the USA yet) and he loved every one. We have passed the books on to friends who also loved them. I would DEFINITELY recommend this book for any fantasy/adventure loving youth!

I am a HUGE Harry Potter and Twilight fan, so when I say that the Silver Sequence has me addicted, it's a big deal. I picked up The Silver Child at the dollar store. That's right, for 1 dollar. I read the back and thought, "Hey why not? If it's bad, I'll give it away." But it was incredible! I had no idea it was apart of a series and soon discovered a world I couldn't walk away from. I finished the first book in a few short hours and immediately went to Amazon to order the second and third installments. When they arrived, I opened the second book and didn't put it down until 4 hours later when I was finished. The third took me 5 hours the next day and when I was finished, I was angry that it was all over. The characters are wonderful and intricate while the plot is twisted and exciting. Every single component of the series is something to fall in love with.Every character is strong and dynamic. For days after I finished the series, my fiance and I discussed the books. I couldn't get them out of my head. This is a series about courage and finding something in yourself that you never knew was there. It's about family and having faith in the people around you, but most of all it's about adapting to situations. I think these are amazing books for teenagers but also books that adults would enjoy as well. People of all ages can fall for these characters and get wrapped up in the plot just as much as I did.
