***Pre-order Abi’s latest adventures, EVERDARK and THE CRACKLEDAWN DRAGON, coming in 2021!***
Magic, adventure, and a whole new world is waiting to be discovered! The perfect series for adventurers aged 9+ and fans of Michelle Harrison, Piers Torday and Jamie Littler. The Unmapped Chronicles will not only leave children entertained, but will also empower themÂ to battle climate change and environmental issues.
Â ‘Adventures are unpredictable and often terribly badly behaved – a bit like pickled onions if you’ve ever tried to fork one on a plate – but they have a way of unlocking people and turning them upside down so that all the astonishing things fizzing around inside them start to tumble out?’
Eleven-year-old Casper Tock hates risks, is allergic to adventures and shudders at the thought of unpredictable events.Â So, it comes as a nasty shock to him when he accidentallyÂ stumblesÂ into Rumblestar, an Unmapped Kingdom full of magical beasts.
All Casper wants is to find a way home, but Rumblestar is in trouble. An evil harpy called MorgÂ is sendingÂ her followers, the Midnights, into the kingdom to wreak havocÂ and pave the way for her to steal the Unmapped magic for herself.Â But Casper cannot turn a blind eye because the future of his own world, he discovers, is bound up with that of the Unmapped Kingdoms.Â
And so, together with Utterly Thankless, a girl who hates rules and is allergic to behaving, and her miniature dragon, Arlo, Casper embarksÂ upon an adventure full ofÂ cloud giants, storm ogres and drizzle hags. CanÂ he, Utterly and Arlo, the unlikeliest of heroes, save the Unmapped KingdomsÂ andÂ our world from the clutches of Morg and her Midnights?
