What if you learned mythical creatures were real and it was up to you to protect them…and save the world? 


Introducing the epic new adventure series that School Library Journal said "is sure to keep lovers of Rick Riordan running to the shelves,” and PopSugar named one of the top ten books to read after Harry Potter.


When the extraordinary secret that mythical creatures are real is in danger of being exposed, painfully average middle schooler Sam London is recruited by the U.S. Department of Mythical Wildlife to safeguard these legendary animals and save the world as we know it. He’s going to need a hall pass for this…

Haunted by a dream of a mythical gryphon, twelve-year-old Sam London uncovers an ancient secret that will change the way he sees the world forever. Recruited by Dr. Vance Vantana, an eccentric zoologist and park ranger sent by the government, Sam is whisked away on an adventure that takes him to the farthest reaches of the globe. Along this journey, Sam learns an incredible truth: mythical creatures are real and living among us in our national parks! A special department in the U.S. government ensures that their existence remains hidden.

But Sam’s dream is an omen that the secret may now be in danger! A dark force seeks the power to expose these creatures and overthrow humankind—and that power can only be found in a magical talisman known as the gryphon’s claw.


Now it's up to Sam and Vance to find the claw and defeat their mysterious new enemy before the world as we know it ceases to exist…Fortunately, they won’t have to do it alone. They’ll be joined by a charming dogman, who longs to be human, and an immortal young female warrior, who must face her destiny.


It's time to step into an enchanting realm where creatures from mythologies around the world are brought to life in a timeless, suspense-filled adventure. Reverberating with themes of friendship, bravery, and the age-old battle between good and evil, "Guardians of the Gryphon's Claw" is a captivating and exciting tale that is perfect for fans of mythology, magical creatures, thrilling plot twists, and grand adventures set against the majestic backdrop of our world's most breathtaking national parks.


Praised by Publishers Weekly as a "death-defying, globe-spanning adventure, packed with creatures out of folklore and myth,” and hailed as “The American Harry Potter” by NYT bestselling author Martin Olson, “Guardians of the Gryphon’s Claw” is a magical roller-coaster ride of an adventure about destiny, friendship, and the power of belief.


Discover the world anew, through the eyes of Sam London. Because sometimes, to find our destiny, all we need is a change in perspective…and maybe a little magic. "Guardians of the Gryphon's Claw" isn't just a middle-grade novel; it’s a passport to a world where the line between myth and reality blur—where the unbelievable becomes the undeniable and ordinary becomes the extraordinary…And the great mythic hero is found in the most average of places.


Get ready to find out if trolls love pancakes, gryphon's hate cookies, dogmen eat biscuits, and if middle schooler Sam London can actually save the entire world!
