Casey is a twelve-year-old boy living in the secluded suburb of Lily Hills, but there is something about his family that has always made him different to the other students at his local primary school.

His deceased father, who once lived in the magical city of Gatiso, hid a Vorostone for him many years ago. Casey's mother is convinced it does not exist but his aunt Odessa, the Chancellor of Gatiso, is certain of its whereabouts.

What does a Vorostone do? Where is it hidden? What does this all mean for Casey Vallen?

About the Author

Leigh van den Broeke began writing When the Gates open for Casey Vallen in the backseat of his car while on his lunch break at work. For an hour every day Leigh would sit in his car making notes on plot, character and style while his colleagues were in the cafeteria. As a child, Leigh loved books having grown up reading Roald Dahl and J.R.R. Tolkien. When the Harry Potter phenomenon hit he was completely taken by J. K. Rowling’s novels and found himself reading that genre more and more. He feels children’s books are more fun than any other kind of story.
