This year Abi was a World Book Day author and her £1 book Everdark
(a prequel to Rumblestar
) was a No.5 Sunday Times bestselling book.
Her previous books include Sky Song, which was a Waterstones Book of the Month in 2018. Rumblestar is the first in an exciting new series: The Unmapped Chronicles.
11-year-old Casper Tock hates risks, is allergic to adventures and shudders at the thought of unpredictable events. So, it comes as a nasty shock to him when he accidentally stumbles into Rumblestar, an Unmapped Kingdom full of magical beasts. All Casper wants is to find a way home, but Rumblestar is in trouble. An evil harpy called Morg is sending her followers, the Midnights, into the kingdom to cause chaos and pave the way for her to steal the Unmapped magic for herself.
But Casper cannot turn a blind eye because the future of his own world, he discovers, is bound up with that of the Unmapped Kingdoms. And so, together with Utterly Thankless, a girl who hates rules and is allergic to behaving, and her miniature dragon, Arlo, Casper embarks upon an adventure full of cloud giants, storm ogres and drizzle hags.
