A thrilling high-seas adventure for readers aged 8+
“This compelling and highly original fantasy adventure had us gripped from the very first page. Twelve-year-old Sai is an extraordinary heroine who had us on the edge of our seats.”
A young woman struggles to unburden herself of the past and chart her own destiny in a world of secrets. As assistant to Mangkon’s most celebrated mapmaker, 12-year-old Sai plays the part of a well-bred young lady with a glittering future. In reality, her father is a low-life conman – and the truth could ruin her. Sai seizes the chance to join an expedition to chart the southern seas, but she isn’t the only one aboard with secrets. When Sai learns that the ship is heading for the fabled Sunderlands – a land of dragons, dangers and riches beyond imagining – she must weigh the cost of her dreams.
