Description

NY Times Bestselling Author E.G. Foley brews up a magical potion for fantasy readers of all ages Take a dash of Harry Potter and a splash of Oliver Twist, add a pinch of steampunk and a sprinkle of Victorian fairy lore, and what do you get? The Gryphon Chronicles A rollicking fantasy adventure series that's as much fun for grownups as it is for kids. Big Trouble... Reunited with his aristocratic magical relatives and finally getting used to his supernatural powers, orphaned ex-pickpocket Jake Everton, the young Lord Griffon (and his Gryphon, Red) travel on their first-ever holiday to cheer on Jake's brilliant cousin, Archie, the boy genius, at the amazing, steampunk Invention Convention in Norway. There, the eccentric young inventor plans to unveil his marvelous new flying machine to the scientific world. But legends of the Viking Age die hard in Scandinavia. Danger strikes as famous Victorian scientists start disappearing without a trace. The mystery deepens, but when Archie vanishes, too, Jake and Red race to the rescue, tracking the kidnapper to his lair--only to come face-to-face with an angry Norse giant From the whimsical oddities of the Invention Convention to the wondrous land of the giants and beyond--even crossing paths with a few Norse gods--Jake and his friends embark on a giant-sized adventure full of hair-raising perils and big laughs. "A wonderful novel in the same vein as Harry Potter, full of nonstop action, magical creatures, and the reality that was Queen Victoria's England."
