Mapmaker Chronicles ~ Race to the End of the World Book 1

Published January 5, 2015 by Michelle Dennis - Author

Allison Tait’s book, Mapmaker Chronicles ~ Race to the End of the World, caught my attention recently. Okay, as my friends know, just mention the words dragon or magic and you have my attention – but the great cover also caught my eye!

14 year Quinn leads a quiet life, on a farm with his older brothers. But, he has a special talent that has caught the attention of the king and things are about to get crazy.

The king wants a map of the world and Quinn has to help him get one. A contest is set up and the winner who brings back a map of the world will receive a handsome prize – the losers? Well, let’s just not talk about them.

Quinn sets off with a mismatched crew of slaves and stowaways to do as the king has ordered (and hopefully survive the sea monsters).

The Mapmaker Chronicles: Race to the End of the World is action packed and full of intrigue. Alison Tait is a true story teller and it’s been an absolute pleasure reading this book (nope, not to my kids – they’re all grown up).

If you love books like Wolfbaene, Deltora Quest or Narnia, you’ll love this one (and so will your kids!)
