Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the other side of the DIVIDE, magical creatures are real and humans are the stuff of myths! Part 1 in the incredible, unforgettable trilogy.

Felix is spending what may be his last summer in Costa Rica, that odd global crossroads where two continents meet and two oceans part. Perched on an abyss, Felix loses consciousness and falls through The Divide. When he comes to, he's in another world: one where legendary animals are real. And he soon discovers that all these wonderous creatures think HE'S the mythical beast with magical powers. Guided by his newfound friends Betony, an elfin girl, and Ironclaw, an eagle-eyed, owl-eared, lion-pawed brazzle, will Felix find his way back home? And will he find a cure for his weak heart?

Synopsis:

In Costa Rica, Felix and his friends set out to find a cure for Felix's illness.

Synopsis:

The first book of the Divide trilogy is now available in paperback. While spending his vacation in Costa Rica, Felix stumbles into The Divide, a magical world where mythical creatures are real and human beings are only a legend.

In the story of thirteen-year-old Felix, The Divide provides a mixture of imagination and humor. While on vacation in Costa Rica, Felix, who has been diagnosed with a life-threatening heart disease, falls into a fantasy world. There, he meets a variety of fictional creatures who help him find a cure for his illness and help him get back home.

In the second title of the trilogy, Back to the Divide, Felix must save his parents from a dangerous curse. The evil Snakeweed freezes Felixs parents in a curse that also endangers the Earth! Felix must work to free his parents and save the world.
