A deep-sea fantasy adventure for readers aged 8+

Young readers will be gripped by this highly original story spanning two worlds.

Talking plants, a mysterious machine and a brilliant cast of deep-sea creatures, this epic adventure has it all! Fans of the Malamander series will love this.


Tapper Watson is just an ordinary Erisean boy who loves adventure stories. But when one of his sixty-seven cousins sends him away on a smugglers’ submarine through the River Lethe to other worlds, he just wants to go home again. On an unscheduled visit to Earth he meets Fern Shakespeare, and a talking plant called Morse, and their adventures begin. And when he finds himself being chased through worlds by a pair of trigger-happy lobster mobsters in search of the mysterious Nemo Machine, Tapper begins to realise that he might not be so ordinary after all…

Claire Fayers grew up in South Wales where, thanks to her local library, she developed a lifelong obsession with myth and magic. Her previous books include the award-winning Accidental Pirates duo, Storm Hound, and Welsh Fairy Tales, Myths and Legends, nominated for the Carnegie medal.
