Filled with excitement and adventure, this novel takes you on a journey filled with mystical creatures, fearsome foes and some brave new friends.

The Emerald Atlas starts off with a dark, snowy night. Chased from their home by the darkest of evil, three children are taken to an orphanage to be kept safe. Kate, Michael and Emma are still living in the orphanage ten years later with only a hazy memory as their link to their family. When they are taken to a mysterious orphanage in Cambridge Falls, the children stumble upon a dark, twisted secret about the town. Filled with suspense, mystery and humour, it is the sort of book that you won’t be able to put it down.

This book is one of the strongest fantasy novels that I’ve read since Harry Potter and His Dark Materials. It is a fantastic story, filled with mystery and enough adventure to make you beg for more. I believe that it will be the ‘new Harry Potter’ and it will take over fantasy fiction for teenagers.
