When his long-lost Uncle Steadfast drops in to reveal that Brave is heir-apparent to another world, he doesn’t believe a word of it. He’s too busy coping with life, so when he is sucked into a new life in the realm of Arvalonia, you’d think Brave would be pleased. But things in Arvalonia aren’t as wonderful as they seem.
When Brave woke up that first, life-changing day, he had no idea that pretty soon he’d be controlling the weather, talking to royalty and journeying to another world. Let alone riding a camel. Life in the mysterious world of Arvalonia, where magic springs from the nature around you, couldn’t be more different to his ordinary existence back home. Especially when he meets True…bossy, rich, driven teenager True who’s out to make his life a misery.
Brave and True venture deep into enemy territory; facing a month without a bath, nipping stinkbuggies, evil ruler Mallevia’s ruthless green guards and eventually a battle with the vile queen herself. Discover a place where the nature of power is within the power of nature. Escape the ordinary.
Brave’s Journey is the perfect choice for young readers on the look-out for an alternative to Hogwarts and Middle-earth.
Suitable for ages 10 years and up.
