Julia Hughes - writing thrilling adventures - time after time after time.
The Griffin Cryer is also free to download, until around 9am tomorrow morning, London time.
It's an easy mistake to make - instead of whistling and calling for her dog, fifteen year old Frankie accidentally summons a griffin and his rider from an alternate universe. The Rider is tall, blond and extremely rude. On the other hand, Balkind is the sweetest, most lovable griffin Frankie's ever met, and she's determined to help them find a way back to their own world.
In doing so, she becomes aware that her newly discovered talent could be used to transform her own family's tragic circumstances: Following a freak accident, Frankie's brother has been comatose for over two years, hovering between life and death. With the mysterious Rider's help, Frankie summons the courage to venture from her self imposed emotional prison and attempts to bring her brother home.
Dealing with parallel universes, disgruntled warriors, and hungry griffins is the easier part of Frankie's life. At school, Frankie learns friends can become enemies, teachers aren't always right, and the boy of your dreams can be all too human. Told in approximately 53,000 words, suitable for young adults, and all those who've ever dreamed of riding a griffin.
