Secrets of the Dragon Tomb
A story of thrilling adventure and desperate peril
“Don’t make a sound,” a voice whispered in my ear. “Don’t even breathe.”
12-year-old Edward Sullivan is used to looking after his eccentric family in the face of malfunctioning clockwork butlers and stray pterodactyls.
But throw in a lunatic archeologist, kidnapped parents, spies, deadly hunting machines, and a chase through the Martian wilderness, and things are about to get crazy.
Edward Sullivan is starting the greatest adventure of his life…
Secrets of the Dragon Tomb is now out!
Abundant humor, intricate worldbuilding details, and precisely timed slapstick and mayhem mesh as neatly as the gears and levers of the water abacus, producing a gorgeously articulated clockwork of a novel.
