Summary: Rachel and Adam are sent to stay with their grandmother, following their parents' divorce. But the quiet English village is a sinister, unsettling place. Is there a dark heart beating beneath the thatched roofs of Triskellion? It is a place protected by an ancient, three-bladed artefact; a village where crops never fail and where the war memorial is blank; a community with much to protect. With the help of the mysterious Gabriel, Rachel and Adam begin to unearth centuries-old secrets and make a shocking revelation about their family's past - and their own future...

Triskellion was a great book to read! The way that the authors (Will Peterson is a pen name, this book was actually written by two people) manage to combine archeological facts with the paranormal plot was spectacular!
The plot is full of action and mystery, and the ending is amazing, and it will let you impatiently waiting for the next book! The twins, Rachel and Adam, are very interesting character to read about, they're somewhat too juvenile for their ages, but at the same time, they stand up for themselves, and do some pretty risky things. The twins are very believable characters and teens can find a connection with them!
The setting is the thing that I most loved in the whole book! Who doesn't think that a small, isolated, village, in the middle of England is the best place to settle a story that has so many secrets?
I'm fascinated with archeology and history stuff so I really appreciated all the facts in the book. But, to all of you that don't share my love for History, I must say, that the book isn't overloaded with History stuff, and that all the facts that are there, only make the mystery bigger!
So, if you're looking for a book full of mystery and unpredictable twists go and read Triskellion!
