Oz Chambers lives in a haunted house. His mother wants to move, but Oz believes that the old place is too full of mystery to leave. When he and his friends hear ghostly footsteps, they decide to investigate the house’s eerie reputation. But what Oz hasn’t bargained for is that he’s not alone in his quest and that solving Penwurt’s puzzles will uncover a murky secret, and the chilling realisation that nothing is quite what it seems.
The Obsidian Pebble is the first book in the Artefact series.

“It’s a haunted house story, a superhero-ish story, a story about a boy dealing with the death of his father, and abive all, an extremely English story :)) It’s vaguely reminiscent of the best parts of Harry Potter, but the Obsidian Pebble is it’s own wonderful concoction. – The Middle Grade Ninja.
“Mr. Jones created a wonderfully entertaining story that I think children of all ages will enjoy. His storyline was quite engrossing and I found myself rooting on Oz Chambers while he embarked on investigating his own family house.” – NIGHT OWL REVIEW
