After weeks of not being able to see for smoke; there was a wall of thick vines which reached to the sky; people started to call it ‘The Thicket’. They were as thick as tree trunks, they grew and entwined just like creepers. Beyond the thicket lay a forest, mountains and very unusual animals and creatures. There lived a people who belonged to the same tribe; who were very special and very loyal and devoted to each other. Two children called Hali and Aaron who found their way into the forest, a forbidden world, had no idea of their wrongdoing as they were intruding in a place that was forbidden. Their exploration was fun and exciting. They looked for hidden lands, which led them through the mountains and the forest. Hali went in search of her brother; who she thought was lost. But Aaron was on a different journey. He had no idea where he was or who he was. They encountered demons and serpents; their journey took them deep into the mountains. They travelled far from their home into the dark; and beyond a magical place. Will they make it?
