Dragon's Green (Worldquake Sequence, #1)
I love the premise of this book and can’t wait to read it!  But I also have a confession to make.  I HATE the US cover!  That second one just above this paragraph.  Yeah, I really, really don’t like it at all.  Especially compared to the original UK cover.  Even more so when I discovered that the UK cover first editions glow-in-the-dark!!  How cool is that?  Needless to say, I’m excited to read this, but that US cover does nothing for me.

Summary:

The Neverending Story meets Jonathan Stroud’s Bartimaeus trilogy in this first magical adventure in a new series from acclaimed novelist Scarlett Thomas.

Effie Truelove believes in magic, as does her grandfather Griffin (although he refuses to do any magic, let alone teach Effie how to use it). After a mysterious incident leaves Griffin close to death, Effie is given an unusual silver ring and told she must look after her grandfather’s library of rare and powerful books. But then the books fall into the hands of shady scholar Leonard Levar, and Effie is propelled into the most dangerous adventure of her life.

Now, Effie and her friends—nerdy Maximilian, rugby-mad Wolf, helpful Lexy, and eccentric Raven—must discover their true powers if they are to get the books back. And Effie alone will have to travel to the Otherworld, where she will uncover the true meaning of the strange old book called Dragon’s Green

Acclaimed novelist Scarlett Thomas invites you into the wondrous realm of the Worldquake Sequence, where magic most decidedly exists, a growing evil lurks, and a group of children is destined to save the world.
