A Storm on the Horizon…
Every spring, the aristocratic magical families of Victorian England gather secretly at Merlin Hall to hobnob and to hold the annual Fey Parliament. While the adults of Magic-kind – from wizards to wood elves, fauns to fairies, giants to djinnis, and their human counterparts – debate matters of importance, the gifted youths must undergo the dreaded Assessments, testing their supernatural abilities.
For rascally Jake Everton, the boy Earl of Griffon, the pressure’s on! Hungry to qualify for the elite Lightrider program that guarantees a life of adventure, Jake must prove himself to the Elders as a worthy future hero-in-training. But when a mysterious junior witch arrives at Merlin Hall with secrets in her eyes and danger at her heels, Jake and his friends must unite to defeat the dark forces that have invaded the Gathering and have sworn the frightfully-talented girl’s destruction.
Join Jake and Dani, Archie and Isabelle on an epic journey into a world of enchantment, making marvelous new friends…and terrible new enemies.
Welcome to The Gryphon Chronicles, a rollicking historical fantasy series (with a hint of steampunk!) that’s as much fun for grownups as it is for kids, from the imagination of New York Times bestselling author, E.G. Foley.
As you’ll see, Jake’s magical world opens up in all kinds of fascinating new ways in this story, plus, some interesting new additions to the core cast are introduced. Well, we've got some really fun Book Extras coming your way here on the blog, but for now, we don’t want to give away any secrets or surprises, because we're really just bursting for you to read it for yourself!
