Two kids, one top-secret agency and an epic mission to save the world.

Young readers aged 8+ will be gripped by this thrilling sci-fi-adventure.


This high octane, action-packed adventure has all the ingredients of a middle grade hit - drama, mystery, great characters and a strong environmental message. Set between Uganda and London, this is the first in an epic new series that we are super excited for!

~Sarah

Jacob and Kira live in the heart of Mbale, Uganda with their conservationist mother and navigate life as unsuspecting geniuses; Kira with hopes to explore outside the hot terrains of Uganda, and conspiracy theorist Jacob, whose fear often holds him back from the answers he so desperately wants to uncover.

But when they discover that someone has been watching their every move in the hopes to enlist them in a top-secret agency called Transcendent, their lives are turned upside down.

Soon the twins are hurtled from the luscious landscapes of Mbale, to the sleek streets of London, where - alongside other selected protegees - they must undertake three rigorous trials, each more difficult than the last, to be accepted into Transcendent. If they are successful, they will be launched into space to complete a high-stakes mission to fight the greatest threat the world has ever seen.

Only, the twins soon realise they have more to contend with than they bargained for ... is there a more sinister reason they have been chosen?

Patrick Gallagher is a primary school teacher from South London with roots in Goa in India and Donegal in Ireland. He studied English and American Literature with Creative Writing in both Kent and Maynooth and is a keen artist and violinist in his spare time. Like lots of Goans of that generation, Patrick's mother was born and raised in Uganda and the time he himself has spent there inspired the spectacular backdrop to Transcendent.
