The Passage to Mythrin 2-Book Bundle
Presenting the two novels in the Mythrin fantasy series, all about Amelia Hammer’s adventures in another world. Amelia’s globe-trotting parents have dumped her in tiny, boring Dunstone in the middle of winter with her grandmother and her geeky cousin Simon, who isn’t having much fun either, saddled with a sulky stranger. But life in safe little Dunstone turns dangerously exciting when tall, proud, fearless Mara comes to town. Mara is not what she seems, and when the cousins take Mara’s side in a war for an alien world, Amelia has to spread her wings – literally – and Simon must find out how far he will go to save a cousin who has become a friend.
In The Prism Blade, dragon leader Mara seeks Amelia’s help again. This time, a peculiar race of humans from a world called Cassar is searching for the Prism Blade, a legendary weapon forged at the beginning of time. Both the dragons of Mythrin and the Casseri seek the Prism Blade for their own protection. Caught in the middle, Amelia and Simon are also caught by surprise when they discover that the Prism Blade has been hidden in their own town … and is one of its most treasured objects!
