Title: Brave’s Journey


Finalist for the Sir Julius Vogel Awards 2016

A boy. A weird tattoo. A silver necklace showing four elements: ‘Earth. Air. Fire. Water.’

When Brave woke up that first, life-changing day, he had no idea that pretty soon he’d be controlling the weather, talking to royalty and journeying to another world. Let alone riding a camel. Life in the mysterious world of Arvalonia, where magic springs from the nature around you, couldn’t be more different to his ordinary existence back home. Especially when he meets True…bossy, rich, driven teenager True who’s out to make his life a misery.

Brave and True venture deep into enemy territory; facing a month without a bath, nipping stinkbuggies, evil ruler Mallevia’s ruthless green guards and eventually a battle with the vile queen herself.

Discover a place where the nature of power is within the power of nature.

Escape the ordinary.
