The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens book trailer - http://www.emeraldatlas.co.uk/

The first thrilling book in the most exciting children's fantasy series since Harry Potter, The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens is an absolute must read. Watch the book video trailer to find out more.
THREE CHILDREN. TWO WORLDS. ONE PROPHECY.
They were taken from their beds one frozen night, when the world was covered in snow. The silhouette of a tall, thin man has haunted Kate ever since.
Ten years on, Kate, Michael and Emma have grown up in a string of miserable orphanages, and all memories of their parents have faded to a blur. Arriving at Cambridge Falls, the children quickly realise there is something different about this place - and Kate feels sure she has seen the dark, crooked house before.
As they explore, they discover an old, empty leather book. The moment they touch it, an ancient magical prophecy is set irrevocably in motion, and the children are thrown into a dangerous alternate reality of dark enchantments and terrifying monsters. Only they can prevent the terrible event that will ruin Cambridge Falls - and stop the world from falling into complete devastation.
Brimming with action and emotion, The Emerald Atlas is the first stage of a journey that will take Kate, Michael, and Emma to strange, dangerous lands. It is the story of three children who set out to save their family, and end up having to save the world.
From film & TV producer John Stephens, comes the first thrilling book in the most exciting children's fantasy series since Harry Potter and His Dark Materials. He spent ten years working in television and was executive producer of Gossip Girl and a writer for Gilmore Girls and The O.C. John and his wife have a dog named Bug and sometimes live in Los Angeles. Visit emeraldatlas.co.uk to read an extract from the book and an exclusive extract from The Fire Chronicle, book two in the Books of Beginning trilogy. As well as view the book trailer.
"Ambitious, entertaining, magical and whimsical, this marks a strong beginning to a new trilogy, invoking just a little Harry Potter and Series of Unfortunate Events along the way"
Realms of Fantasy magazine, USA
"It's bright and energetic and has some exciting set pieces" The Guardian
"A great fantasy quest story, with a good balance in its three central characters, each of whom have flaws to overcome. Kate is so used to taking care of her younger siblings, she finds it difficult to be open and to relinquish control of events. Geeky Michael lacks courage. And feisty Emma is impetuous and pugnacious. The supporting cast are all vivid and eccentric, just as they should be. The goodies show real heroism and the baddies are incorrigible. It's pacy and tense and I loved the rollercoaster feel of it - as one battle is over and you breathe a sigh of relief, another crisis begins. The writing is perfectly judged for the tween market - as a television writer, the author knows how to make things visual, and it's accessible but not too simplistic. Junior fantasy fans are going to love this book." www.thebookbag.co.uk
