Guardian of the Underworld - New release!

Title: Guardian of the Underworld
Author: Rachel Tetley
You can find this book here: Amazon (Kindle Edition) and Amazon UK (Kindle Edition).

Author's Description:

Two worlds

Neither can exist without the other

And one guardian to ensure their survival

But a family with a score to settle

Forces one boy, into a dangerous adventure

Jake Summers is an ordinary boy with an ordinary family- so he thinks. He has just spent another summer holidays building dens in the woods with his best friend Paul. But when someone special unexpectedly dies, Jake is determined to find out the truth, unaware that it will change his life forever. 

He discovers a key to Grandpa’s forbidden room, and is plunged into a long-forgotten magical world, together with class mate Arianna Brown and a strange creature called Noggin. Stormy seas, underground carts pulled by Golden Eagles and a dragon all stand in his way. He must race against time to fulfill an ancient magical prophecy and save the world.


Starting from the cover, to the beautiful illustrations (done by the author herself!), continuing with the story - which I can't wait to explore - "Guardian of the Underworld" feels soaked with magic. 
Yes, I know it is a children's adventure story, and I shouldn't get so excited about it, with me being a grown-up and all, but I am sure my inner child will enjoy it.

Rachel Tetley shared a few words on her book, with the occasion of its release:

It is about an eleven year old boy, Jake Summers, who finds himself on an adventure in a long-forgotten magical world, where together with his classmate Arianna and a strange creature called Noggin, he has to race against time through five deadly challenges to fulfill an ancient magical prophecy and save the world.
 It is along the lines of "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" story. I have attempted to weave good strong family values and the importance of forgiveness.  It would appeal most to those who enjoy the likes of Fablehaven, Harry Potter and Percy Jackson.


 It is the first in an intended series, although I’m not sure, at this point, how many there will be.

Thank you, Rachel! Looking forward to reading your story.
