Sometimes one hero isn't enough - sometimes you need a full dozen. Mack's search for his dazzling dozen continues in the third instalment of this hilarious, action-packed fantasy series by the New York Times bestselling author of GONE.
Time is short for Mack MacAvoy! He has less than 30 days to round up the rest of the magnifica and defeat the Pale Queen and her evil daughter Risky.
It seems that the only way to do this is to learn the magical language of Vargran, and to do THAT they must travel to Europe to find the Key - an ancient engraved stone that will unlock its power.
But can Mack, Jarrah, Xiao, Dietmar and Stephan locate the invisible castle of William "Blisterthong" MacGuffin, who guards the Key?
And will The Key hold the power to save the world?
The Magnificent 12: The Key is another fast-paced episode in bestselling Michael Grant's hysterical fantasy adventure.
Michael Grant is the New York Times bestselling author of the GONE series. He has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five US states, as well as as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving, and in fact became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn't tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica. He lives in southern California with his wife, Katherine Applegate, and their two children.
