Red sky at night, sailor's delight. After their mission in London, Nomad, Riff, Phoenix and Orbit are back at HELIX, training to master their magic. But things have changed. Nomad's secret is out.

Her peers know she is a Witness; a sorcerer with the rare ability to read others' magic. This causes ripples at HQ, especially when it means that Steel, the most popular cadet in her class, is no longer the centre of attention. But there are greater threats than new rivals.

When the cadets are sent to New Zealand to investigate a top-secret case, they find themselves in more danger than they bargained for. With no one to trust and time running out, it's a race to stop the Inductors before they have enough power to destroy HELIX for good.

Red sky at morning, sailor's warning . . .


All our favourite characters, Nomad, Riff, Phoenix and Orbit are back in a wonderful new adventure. After their successful mission in London, they are all back in Melbourne training and practising their magic.

When the cadets get tracked down by a rogue New Zealand agent, their peaceful lives are turned upside down again. All the cadets are sent to a camp in New Zealand, but Nomad and the others have a secret mission to complete.

They find themselves stranded and alone, with no one they can trust except themselves, and in more danger than they have even been in.

Fast paced, exciting and with great characters, Skye Melki-Wegner has again captured the imagination and produced another wonderful page turner.

A fantastic mix of magic, top-secret spy adventures, and lots of gadgets, make this series perfect for readers in Year 8 and up.
