A gripping fantasy adventure for 8+

The first in a fantastic new fantasy series by a talented new voice

This imaginative fantasy has it all - a brave and highly relatable heroine, epic world-building and thrilling action from start to finish. We can't wait to see where debut author Janelle McCurdy takes the series next.


Mia always dreamed of being an umbra tamer until she met the wild creature on the Nightmare Plains. Since that day, she prefers to stay safe within the walls of Nubis. Safe, that is, until a surprise attack. With her parents captured, Mia’s only hope is to travel to the City of Light to find help. But with only her little brother, two friends and one solitary tamed umbra, the journey feels impossible. Mia not only has to overcome her fears, she also has to learn to harness her umbra taming abilities if they are to complete the quest in time.

Janelle McCurdy is an author and fully-fledged gamer. She lives in London. Mia and the Lightcasters is her middle grade debut.
