“When I ran away, aged seventeen, I didn’t do it for the usual reasons...I did it because I was looking for adventure.” My name is Mira Brand, and I'm a Seeker – a treasure hunter who can cross between worlds seeking long-forgotten treasure hoards of ancient races. My home is London, but I work in the worlds beneath our own, traipsing through places where no one has walked in a thousand years. Except for that time I happened to cross paths with another Seeker. Wealthier than me, less pleasant in disposition...okay, downright angry, especially when I made off with the loot. I didn't expect he'd chase me, but he did, and he's not the only one. Pursued by my foes, outnumbered by enemies, running short on friends, it's all part of the life of a runaway and a treasure hunter.

“When I ran away, aged seventeen, I didn’t do it for the usual reasons...I did it because I was looking for adventure.” My name is Mira Brand, and I'm a Seeker – a treasure hunter who can cross between worlds seeking long-forgotten treasure hoards of ancient races. My home is London, but I work in the worlds beneath our own, seeking treasure in places no one else will go. Except my two companions, Carson Yates and Heidi Luo, assuming the arguments we've been sharing don't rip our newfound alliance apart. This time, we're after the Tide of Ages, a mysterious artifact hidden in a world of water. It's a funny thing, the Tide of Ages – no one knows exactly what it can do. But I mean to find out, and win it for our newfound little family of Seekers. If we don't end up drowning each other first.

“When I ran away, aged seventeen, I didn’t do it for the usual reasons...I did it because I was looking for adventure.” My name is Mira Brand, and I'm a Seeker – a treasure hunter who can cross between worlds seeking long-forgotten treasure hoards of ancient races. My home is London, but I work in the worlds beneath our own, seeking my fortune wherever I can find it. Say, for example, in Ostiagard, which is like the Rome of Seeker world. Ostiagard is known as the City of Lies. A wealthy jewel and the seat of an ancient capital, it has been invaded thrice. Each time, not a single gemstone or piece of gold was carried off, and the invading armies ultimately retreated, convinced they'd been deceived about the wealth of Ostiagard. I'm not convinced. I'm going to find the lost treasure of Ostiagard, and I'll fight my way through anything that comes my way to claim it – an ancient order, my bickering comrades, and even my greatest challenge ever. My own family.

From New York Times bestselling author Rachel Vincent comes a richly imagined, provocative new series set in the dark mythology of the Menagerie… When Delilah Marlow visits a famous traveling carnival, Metzger's Menagerie, she is an ordinary woman in a not-quite-ordinary world. But under the macabre circus big-top, she discovers a fierce, sharp-clawed creature lurking just beneath her human veneer. Captured and put on exhibition, Delilah is stripped of her worldly possessions, including her own name, as she's forced to "perform" in town after town. But there is breathtaking beauty behind the seamy and grotesque reality of the carnival. Gallagher, her handler, is as kind as he is cryptic and strong. The other "attractions"—mermaids, minotaurs, griffins and kelpies—are strange, yes, but they share a bond forged by the brutal realities of captivity. And as Delilah struggles for her freedom, and for her fellow menagerie, she'll discover a strength and a purpose she never knew existed. Renowned author Rachel Vincent weaves an intoxicating blend of carnival magic and startling humanity in this intricately woven and powerful tale

At this magical boarding school, children who have experienced fantasy adventures are reintroduced to the "real" world.

But Rini can’t let Reality get in the way of her quest – not when she has an entire world to save! (Much more common than one would suppose.) If she can't find a way to restore her mother, Rini will have more than a world to save: she will never have been born in the first place. And in a world without magic, she doesn’t have long before Reality notices her existence and washes her away. Good thing the student body is well-acquainted with quests... A tale of friendship, baking, and derring-do. Warning: May contain nuts.
