We’ve had this for some time but for whatever reason we’ve not sent it out into the world. So, at last, here is the cover for book 2 in the artefact quintet. Once again I am indebted to the amazing Lisa Amowitz who has done a great job of injecting mystery and more than a touch of spookiness into this cover.
So whats this one about?
Oz Chambers has a wonderful secret; the obsidian pebble, gifted to him by his dead father, is an artefact of astonishing power. The kind that makes the year eight science competition a hands-down walkover thanks to the pebble’s genius avatar, Soph.
But there are sinister forces abroad who will stop at nothing to get their hands on such power, and when fellow pupils start being attacked, Oz finds himself accused of all sorts of shenanigans and in very hot water. Soon, he and his friend are caught up in a centuries old legend involving a missing ring, lava toothpaste and a murderous monster known as the Beast of Seabourne.
Thrills and spills come from all directions in this mystery-uncovering second book in the artefact series.
Due out in October from Spencer Hill MG, you’ll just have to wait for the rest.
