Overview

Edsel and his friend Jacq are digging a hole under the blazing Widen sun but they don’t know why. And when they finally make their way to Grand City, the list of things they don’t know just gets longer and longer. Everything they see, everything they’re told, simply makes them more confused.

So can Edsel keep the promise he made to Ben and the children of Verdada to rescue them? Why is the usually feisty Jacq suddenly so pale and forgetful? And who are the strange, ghostly figures that form wispy dreams with their bare hands?

In the final, thrilling instalment of the Edsel Grizzler trilogy, Edsel must not only find answers to all this and more – he must also search deep within to discover who he really is once and for all.

James Roy

James Roy was born in country NSW in 1968. When he was very young, his family moved to Papua New Guinea and later to Fiji, where he spent much of his childhood adventuring by day and reading by night. After finishing high school he studied to become a registered nurse, but the urge to tell stories remained strong.

Since his first novel was published in 1996, James has written over twenty books for young people, including the CBCA Honour Books Captain Mack and Billy Mack’s War, several Notable Books in the same awards, and Anonymity Jones, which won the young adult category of the Western Australian Premier’s Book Awards in 2011. His short story collection Townwas awarded the Ethel Turner Prize in the NSW Premier’s Awards in 2008 and was shortlisted for several other awards, including the prestigious German Youth Literature Prize.

When he isn’t speaking at schools and festivals across Australia and beyond, James lives with his family in a creaky 100-year-old house in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. In his increasingly limited spare time he enjoys music, art and photography.
