Power is not for the weak or faint-hearted.
If Frank, Cas, Gabby and Anya want to find the next two guardians of the Simbrian and keep them safe, they need to journey across the dangerous borderlands and into the dark and
shadowy world of Kzarlac, sworn enemy of Byeland.
Ruled by the fearsome Etamin Dahke, Kzarlac is no place for four naïve teenagers. Keen wits and a large helping of luck are no guarantee they will succeed and return safely.
Driven by their desire to protect the delicate peace that has existed since the time of Kester, their quest is about to take a deadly turn, and the exposure of an unconceivable secret may make Frank regret ever having started.
About the Author
Jeremy Elson is the author of the Frank Penny series of adventure books for young adults.
Jeremy is a home educating parent himself, and Frank Penny was borne out of his desire to bring to life a home educated child, as well as tell a straightforward and compelling adventure story.
I hadn’t read any previous books in the series, and while it isn’t essential to do so, it might flesh out the back story a bit if you decide to.
Frank and his friends are on an epic quest to save their homeland from an evil emperor and her henchmen. They must find the guardians, but the enemy is a few steps ahead of them, and they have teenage things like love, school and parents to contend with first.
There’s lots of action and adventure, as well as milkshakes and having fun at a festival, before heading off into enemy territory and putting themselves at great risk.
Frank also discovers some secrets along the way, including about himself, that could change things completely.
