A new and dangerous mission awaits in the fantastic Monster Odyssey series, where our hero Dakkar must defeat a clan of evil brothers intent on ruling the world, whilst battling terrifying monsters. Inspired by Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Dakkar is a young Captain Nemo and these books are the most thrilling of adventures. Having stopped two of the six evil Oginski brothers, Dakkar now faces double danger from the Oginski twins - possibly the most cunning and devious of the brothers yet. Set in the icy wastes of Greenland, Dakkar must battle giant bears, vicious arctic sharks and a sabretooth tiger as he hunts for the fabled Thermolith, a source of great heat energy which the Oginskis also seek, in order to complete their preparations for a new world order with themselves at the helm. An action-packed adventure with hot-air balloon combat and a dramatic race across the arctic. Perfect for fans of Percy Jackson, Indiana Jones and monsters! Readers ready to move on from Beast Quest will love this!
