Adventure and danger lie just off the edge of the map in this swashbuckling new trilogy!

Quinn's older brothers may long for adventure, but he is content with a quiet life on the farm. Destiny, however, has other plans.

The King is determined to create the first map of the world and has scoured the kingdom for boys who could become mapmakers. When Quinn is chosen for the King's training school, he's amazed - but that is nothing compared to his shock when he is selected as one of the three mapmakers and finds himself on board a ship, competing for the big prize.

So begins Quinn's reluctant journey deep into the unknown, on a ship captained by a slave, with a stowaway girl on board, and a mysterious sea monster that seems to be following them. Hot on their trail are the other competitors for the King's prize, who will stop at nothing to win.

The Mapmaker Chronicles: Race to the End of the World is packed with action, adventure and intrigue, as Quinn battles unexpected enemies, discovers strange new lands and tries to conceal two very big secrets from his crewmates...

    Comments about Race to the End of the World:

    I bought this book as the first in a series to read nightly to my 9 yr old son. He just loves it. I am enjoying it so much I have considered sneaking away during the day while he is at school and reading the rest of the book myself. There are both male and female lead characters. I have a friend with a 9 yr old daughter who loves the series too.
