A fast-paced fantasy adventure that will set your imagination


Twins Arthur and Maudie Brightstorm receive word in Lontown that

their famous explorer father has died in a failed

attempt to reach the southernmost point in the world. Not only

that, but he has been accused of stealing fuel

before he died!

The twins don't believe the news, and they answer an ad to join

a new attempt to reach South Polaris. It's their only hope of learning

the truth ... and salvaging their family's


As the winged ship Aurora sets sail, the twins must keep

their wits about them and prove themselves worthy of the rest

of the crew.

But will Arthur and Maudie find the answers they seek?
