The future meets the legendary past in this edge-of-your-seat new series by the author of Young Sherlock Holmes!
Calum Challenger is a boy with a mission: to track down supposedly mythical creatures and capture their DNA. But while Calum and his friends battle to save these beings, an murderous pharmaceutical company is fighting to wipe them out. In this first adventure, Calum and a group of misfit mates – a computer hacker, a freerunner, an ex-marine and a girl with a chip on her shoulder – criss-cross the globe, searching for creatures to save. But they must stay one step ahead of their enemies, who plan to kill the elusive beasts… and won’t hesitate to take them out too.

“Lane’s writing is detailed, with scenes of exquisite terror… This is a world of shadowy conspiracies and sinister groups who have agents everywhere… nothing is what it seems. A hugely enjoyable treat.” Daily Telegraph
