NY Times Bestselling Author E.G. Foley brews up a magical potion for fantasy readers of all ages! Take a dash of Harry Potter and a splash of Oliver Twist, add a pinch of steampunk and a sprinkle of Victorian fairy lore, and what do you get? The Gryphon Chronicles! A rollicking fantasy adventure series that’s as much fun for grownups as it is for kids. Behind the iron gates of The Black Fortress, evil gathers its forces, preparing to strike… Three months ago, the horrible news that the Dark Druids captured his beloved pet Gryphon sent thirteen-year-old Jake Everton reeling—especially since he knows he’s the one the warlock brotherhood really wants. It’s a trap, and poor Red is just the bait. Well aware of the threat, the Elders have forbidden the daring boy hero from taking any action to rescue his faithful companion. Instead, Jake and his friends must cool their heels at the Order’s palace headquarters, where they’ll be “safe.” But treachery stalks the hallowed corridors of Merlin Hall. Palace intrigues abound as a traitor makes a secret pact with the enemy. And when a terrifying prophecy emerges with Jake at the center of it all, the full-scale magical war between good and evil that the Order has long dreaded only needs one spark to explode… “A wonderful novel in the same vein as Harry Potter, full of nonstop action, magical creatures, and the reality that was Queen Victoria’s England.” ~The Reading Café The Gryphon Chronicles series: Book 1 – THE LOST HEIR Book 2 – JAKE & THE GIANT Book 3 – THE DARK PORTAL Book 3.5 – JAKE & THE GINGERBREAD WARS Book 4 – RISE OF ALLIES Book 5 – SECRETS OF THE DEEP Book 6 – THE BLACK FORTRESS

Some lost treasures were never meant to be found… With the Dark Druids after him and a magical war brewing, thirteen-year-old Jake Everton must lie low for a while, so his Elder witch aunt takes him and the gang on a long beach holiday, out of harm’s way. But sure enough, Jake plunges into trouble once again when he meets a feisty royal mermaid on the run. Princess Sapphira, daughter of King Nereus, recently ventured into the deep and stumbled upon a powerful artifact from ancient Atlantis. But the mysterious orb holds deadlier secrets than she ever suspected, and now every power-mad tyrant in the Seven Seas wants it—especially the dread, undead pirate king, Captain Davy Jones. When the legendary Lord of the Locker invades her father’s kingdom and takes her little sister hostage, demanding the orb in exchange, Sapphira blames herself for the catastrophe and means to hand it over. But Jake finds out that if Jones gets the orb, he’ll use its power to drown the world in a second Noah’s Flood! Now it’s up to the aspiring young Lightrider and his friends to help the mermaid rescue her little sister and save the world from the same watery doom that drowned Atlantis—if Jake and the headstrong princess don’t strangle each other first! Welcome to The Gryphon Chronicles, a rollicking historical fantasy series that’s as much fun for grownups as it is for kids, from the imagination of New York Times bestselling author, E.G. Foley. “A wonderful novel in the same vein as Harry Potter, full of nonstop action, magical creatures, and the reality that was Queen Victoria’s England.” –The Reading Café
