Publisher's Summary

NY Times & USA Today bestselling author E.G. Foley launches The Gryphon Chronicles, a new series of historical fantasy adventures (with a hint of steampunk!) that's as much fun for grownups as it is for kids.
Strange new talents...
Jake is a scrappy orphaned pickpocket living by his wits on the streets of Victorian London. Lately he's started seeing ghosts, and discovers he can move solid objects with his mind! He has no idea why. Next thing he knows, a Sinister Gentleman and his minions come hunting him. On the run for his life, Jake is plunged headlong into a mysterious world full of magic and deadly peril. A world that holds the secret to who he really is: The long-lost heir of an aristocratic family - with magical powers!
But with treacherous enemies closing in, it will take all of his wily street instincts and the help of his friends - both human and magical - to solve the mystery of what happened to his parents and defeat the foes who never wanted the Lost Heir of Griffon to be found...

What the Critics Say

“It's hard to imagine a better way to enjoy this historical fantasy than through the expert narration of Jamie MacKenzie…MacKenzie smoothly portrays multiple characters with a variety of British, Irish, and Scots accents. The frenzied eagerness of the greedy "arachno-sapiens," the indignant squabbling of the Newgate prison ghosts, and the simpering voice of the sea witch give this audiobook performance a three-dimensional effect.” (AudioFile)

Hidden Gem

I initially bought this book with low expectations. I enjoyed the narrator on the sample but otherwise I expected the book to so-so. I was surprised to find that the book is fun, imaginative, magical, and witty. The book is right up there with Harry Potter. The story is intended to be YA but it is written intelligently and the author, wisely, did not dumb down the language. The narrator is excellent and a joy to listen to. This is a great book for kids and adults alike. Well worth the credit.
