Zoe and Zak are lost in exotic India, where gods and magic still exist. Before they can find their way home, they have to do one little thing: Save a mythical creature from an ancient evil that wants to rule the world.
When Zoe Guire goes along on her mom’s business trip to India, things get very weird, very quickly: an elephant-god speaks to her from the bottom of a swimming pool; she and her classmate Zak get locked in a trunk and shipped off to the Himalayan foothills; and a snake charmer tells them they’ve been chosen to protect a creature called the Ghost Leopard.
As they travel deeper into the mountains known as the Realm of the Gods, things get even weirder. If she and Zak want to make it back to their parents, they’re going to have to tap into powers they never knew existed.
Because if they don’t, things will never be the same for any of us ever again.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I am a Canadian, but I was lucky enough to spend one year of high school at a boarding school in the Indian Himilayas. The time I spent there made a deep impression on me and I always wanted to go back. By writing this series, it has enabled me to revisit India and make it even more magical.
