Tell your lord to beware, the wolves smell danger in the wind.

Wolfhaven Castle has been attacked, and only four escape capture ... Tom, trained to scrub pots, not fight; Elanor, the Lords daughter; Sebastian, a knight in training and Quinn, the witchs apprentice.

Somehow, if they are to save their people, these unlikely heroes must find four magical beasts from legend. But first, they have to make it out of the castle alive...

Best-selling, award-winning storyteller, Kate Forsyth, weaves battles, beasts and bravery in this epic new five-book series.

    Comments about Escape from Wolfhaven Castle:

    Escape from Wolfhaven Castle is the first book in the Impossible Quest series. It follows the stories of four young heros; Tom, Elenor, Quinn and Sebastian. Also tagging along is Tom's dog Fergus. After their home is invaded, the four children escape to find help and save their kingdom. To do this they are sent on a quest by the local witch to retrieve four 'impossible' items. This is a wonderful children's story of four unlikely children who begin to put their differences aside and come together for the good of their kingdom. Full of adventure with lots of twists and turns and intriguing characters.
