Jaxon and Shay Vale are 16-year-old twins, one of whom, due to their heritage, will be the future Lord or Lady of Vale Manor in England. In their eyes, this is a burden and not one they are the slightest bit interested in. For now, it's their father's turn to take on the lordship after the death of their grandfather. This means a move from Ireland to Jarrowvale in the Lake District, much to their annoyance. Seeing the manor doesn't help matters either; in fact, as soon as they arrive, Jaxon and Shay are ready to take the next plane back to Ireland. Jaxon is sure he heard the house call his name and decides it is too creepy for him. An old lady from a store in the village tells them about the manor's secret: the 24th Room, which sits in the 5th Dimension, can be reached from a stairway that will take them on a journey through the amazing night sky. This room is like no other, and holds many surprises for Jaxon and Shay. The legend of the room states, once they turn 18, that their memory of the 24th Room will disappear... But will it? 24th Room is a work of young adult fiction that will appeal to 12-16 year old 'teensters' that enjoy fantasy fiction. It is the first of two books in the 24th Series.

`I feel honoured to have worked on this wonderful story... Christy captured my imagination with her writing. The characters are easy for teens to relate to, and as an adult I was totally swept away!' -- Leigha Hartley
`Ellynby's world bends the imagination and makes the reader believe that anything and everything is possible. It stays with you long after you've read the final page... Ellynby is someone to watch!' -- Michael Trigg
