PROPHECY OF THE UNDERWOLRD
A fast-paced adventure filled with lots of exciting twists and turns, this hilarious spoof of adventure/hero stories is the author's tribute to this well-loved genre!
Published by: Penguin Random House SEA
Filled with wacky humour and surprising twists and turns, this spoof of hero-adventure narratives follows a misguided hero and his three friends on a hilarious romp through a parallel world in a quest to save their own from destruction.
When the prophesied hero unexpectedly dies on the eve of the quest to save the world from a series of natural disasters, thirteen-year-old Julian Kee is randomly chosen as a last-minute replacement. With absolutely no world-saving skills whatsoever, he must nonetheless lead his friends to journey into a parallel world underneath the earth's crust (known as the Underworld) and retrieve a magical rock that can save their world.
The problem is that the ruling council of the Underworld objects to their quest, and access to the rock can only be obtained by passing through a series of terrible trials, including navigating an unsolvable maze, enduring unspeakable tortures in the dungeons of the council’s citadel, and facing a really cute bunny. And is the Underworlder who cheerfully volunteers to risk her life to help them simply a girl with a very kind, selfless heart, or is she really a spy for the council?
A fast-paced adventure filled with lots of exciting twists and turns, this hilarious spoof of adventure/hero stories will be enjoyed by both the young and the not-so-young!
