PERFECT FOR AGES 8 TO 14
In the third episode of the Nikolas and Company series, Nikolas’s best friend, Xanthus, is slowly turning to stone, and all he can do is watch. The boy steward will have to take a stand against the Council of Teine, the wicked Sheriff Silas Gorringe, creepy orphanage keepers, a mischievous automaton arcade, a horde of blood-thirsty gorgons, and even his closest friends, to try and find a cure for Xanthus Kobayashi. Nikolas is in a race to save his best friend from the breath of the creature most foul.
Join Nikolas and his motley crew of friends as they time travel from an apocalyptic Earth to a fantastic moon thousands of years in the past. Nikolas will hear the call of a mysterious woman, battle evil drones, fly malfunctioning hover trucks, run from other-worldly monsters, witness the blue and yellow fire of blood-thirsty water dragons, and travel through space and time, as he seeks to save the Merfolk of the Eynclaene coast.

Review from my 13-year old daughter:
"This was an imaginative, well-written novel similar to the Hitchhiker's Guide books and was a pleasure to read. The author did a good job and hopefully has more in store." Sara Grace
"Enticing and Amazing"... These are the opening reviews my 11 year old son. As a constant video/computer gamer, it is phenomenal to see him immersed in these books. He loves this series so much that he's been sharing his books with other boys in his class and asked the school librarian to carry it. Highly recommended by this family!" - Gemmavive

What a fantastic book - and I use that word in the literal sense! Matt Keland

I was caught up in the story and couldn't wait to read what happened next. Merrows, Scuccas, Jynn'us - It feels like this book only scratches the surface. - Rob Momary
