Child of Gabriel: The Battle for the Lost Amulet

CofGabriel

Thirteen-year-old Kenya’s life is about to change forever!

Caring Kenya lives with her cantankerous mother and grumpy stepfather, unaware of the incredible destiny that awaits her. As a Child of Gabriel, she is one of the guardians of an ancient amulet whose fate will determine the future of her planet.

When the world was young, a mighty conflict raged between Kenya’s people, the peace-loving land dwellers, and terrifying beasts of the underworld. The land dweller guardians ended the war by shattering a magic amulet that could give the beasts power to rule. But now, the long-forgotten underworld has grown in strength. It seeks to reunite the amulet’s shattered shards and conquer the world…

Can Kenya and her friend Amit find the amulet pieces and save their planet?

About the Author

A. M. (Anne Maria) Raithatha co-wrote BBA and Proud which won an Edinburgh Fringe First in 2000 and then the children’s TV series My Life as a Popat which won a BAFTA in 2005. Today Maria teaches science and maths at one of England’s top prep schools. The idea for the Child of Gabriel series occurred to the author when she wondered what was going on in the lives of her quietest students. She thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be amazing to make them the heroines and heroes who save the world?’
