Description: When thirteen-year-old Max Tilt stumbled across his great-great-great-grandfather Jules Verne's unfinished, unpublished manuscript, The Lost Treasures, he thought he had the answer to all his problems, but nothing in life is ever that easy. With his mom's illness getting worse again, Max needs to figure out a way to save his family--now more than ever. So Max and his cousin Alex revisit The Lost Treasures, and they find a clue that just might be the key to a cure. It's the story of Verne's seemingly impossible recovery from a near-fatal gunshot wound. Somehow, after being shot, Verne didn't just survive, he thrived. And the book hints that he was only able to do so after collecting magical healing elements that he'd saved from a race around the world. Piecing together hints from Verne's Around the World in 80 Days and his lost manuscript, Max and Alex realize there's a way to save Max's mom if they're daring enough to try.

Description: In a foggy archipelago called the City of Islands, twelve-year-old Mara has always been fascinated by the magic that drifts on the air as songs. But as a servant for the powerful Lady of the Tides, Mara must earn her keep by searching for magical treasures deep in the murky ocean. Then Mara finds the skeletons of strange hybrid creatures that haven't existed in the city for centuries--all humming with a powerful spell-song. Convinced her discovery will earn her the opportunity to study magic, Mara shares them with the Lady. But instead of a reward, the Lady gives Mara a new challenge: to sneak into the island fortress, the Winter Blade. Now Mara must dive deeper than ever before to survive her mission. The chilling truths that Mara uncovers along the way, about her past as well as about the secrets of her beloved city, are more dangerous--and magical--than she ever imagined.--Provided by Publisher.
