The Secret of Moon Castle (The Secret Series, Book 5)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub

On occasion, a strange tingling effect is felt by them, and strange coloured lights seem to rise from the ground, and it seems to be due to a strange metal (possibly radioactive) that mysterious men are mining for unknown reasons.

There are your clothes to see to - the agents to ring up - and I must write a letter to the three caretakers to tell them that our plans are altered, and only you
could creep in on Guy then, and see what he is doing. We must find it! �Well - look at this, said Mike, pointing to the map again. �It looks as if the passage from that secret door in Pauls room leads inside the walls somewhere, and then comes out to another door - or perhaps an opening of some kind - inside the chimney of one of the tower rooms. What does everybody think? Everybody was only too anxious to think that Jack was right! �I know how we can tell if were right, said Mike. �We

He could see nothing that could cause the books to jump out. �All the books have come from the same side of the room, and from the same shelf-level, said Paul. �Thats queer, isnt it? Oh my goodness, there goes the picture again Sure enough it had begun to swing, though more slowly than before. Jack stood an the ladder and watched it. What was the point of all these silly happenings? �Throw the books back to me, he said to Mike. �Ill put them in
Jack. �Good thing weve got our torches back. We can see what were doing now. The girls got into bed - and so did Paul, although he felt he really ought to go and help the two boys. He lay and watched them put chairs against the wall, and then, quite suddenly, fell fast asleep. �Blow, said Jack, looking at him. �I meant to have asked him if there was a chair standing close to the wall when he woke up this morning; because it seems to me that whoever climbed back through the high-up door
