Cobalt must find a way to recover and move forward with a normal life. Perhaps there is more to the mysterious energy source Alpha-Energy, and learning more it will show a way it can help. The Inventor introduces readers to a world of imagination, adventure and the power of creating. Readers of all ages will enjoy this new series.
Kitty Quest Sinister Sister – Razorbill releases the third volume in this fun and fast-paced series. Perigold and Woolfrik, the kitties of Kitty Quest, are on high alert. A new villain is coming to town: Princess Horribelle of Awfulia. She’s come to visit her big sister Scarygold, who is none other than Perigold. The young heroine is actually the heir to the throne of the awful kingdom, but never wanting to be bad herself, she left that life behind for a new start in Pawdor. Woolfrik and Perigold meet up with the princess to try to find out what she could be up to, but the appearance of an old nemesis with a big grudge against Kitty Quest shows up and things take a turn for the worse. Kitty Quest must figure out if Horribelle’s visit is just an innocent family reunion or if she has something far more sinister up her sleeve. Fans of Dogman and The Investigators will enjoy this series.
