S.S. Taylor: The Expeditioners and the Secret of King Triton's Lair (Burlington)
Phoenix Books Burlington, Saturday, October 18 at 5pm
Join us in welcoming S.S. Taylor, author of The Expeditioners and the Secret of King Triton's Lair, back to Phoenix Books!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: S. S. Taylor has been fascinated by maps ever since the age of 10, when she discovered an error on a map of her neighborhood and wondered if it was really a mistake. She has a strong interest in books of all kinds, expeditions, old libraries, mysterious situations, long-hidden secrets, missing explorers, and traveling to known and unknown places. She lives in Vermont.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Kit, Zander, and M.K. West are settling into their new lives as students at the Academy for the Exploratory Sciences when Kit finds another mysterious map left for him by their father, the brilliant, famous—and presumed dead—Explorer Alexander West. Why did Alexander leave the maps behind, and why are government agents so determined to seize them? What is really going on in a mysterious and unknown stretch of the Caribbean, famous for its violent storms and shipwrecks? And what is the huge contraption M.K. is building in her workshop? As two world powers come to the brink of war, Kit must find a deadly hidden island and unlock its secrets, hoping he has the courage to follow the trail of maps, wherever it may lead.

This is the second book in The Expeditioners series, but don't worry: You don't have to have started the series to have a blast at this event.

Praise for The Expeditioners series: “Full of kid power... adventure served with heaping helpings of cleverness.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A wonderful example of steampunk done well.” —School Library Journal

“Beautifully written and nail-bitingly thrilling, this is an easy series to get hooked on.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“The Expeditioners rollicks, twists, turns and chases through canyons and arroyos, along airships and gliders, through boxcars and crumbling mansions, and on the way the heroes uncover all sorts of fabulous mysteries through their own cunning and bravery. It is a thoroughly smashing read.” —Boing Boing

DATE & TIME: Saturday, October 18th at 5pm

LOCATION: Phoenix Books Burlington

EVENT FORMAT: Check back for details. ADMISSION: This event is FREE and open to all ages. The Expeditioners is a middle grade series, and is particularly good for ages 10-14 (though Phoenix's adult booksellers love it, too!)

The Expeditioners and King Triton's Lair

We are happy to welcome back S. S. Taylor with the second volume in her fabulous Expeditioners series. If you love steampunk, nifty gadgets, maps, and adventure then The Expeditioners is for you.

Kit, Zander, and M. K. West are settling into their new lives as students at the Academy for the Exploratory Sciences when Kit finds another mysterious map left for him by their father, the brilliant, famous — and presumed dead — explorer Alexander West. Why did Alexander leave the maps behind, and why are government agents so determined to seize them? What is really going on in a mysterious and unknown stretch of the Caribbean, famous for its violent storms and shipwrecks? And what is the huge contraption M. K. is building in her workshop?

"Full of kid power......adventure served with heaping helpings of cleverness" - Kirkus Reviews

"...At its core, this is a novel of resilience, with the war serving as both a life-changing event and no more than the background noise of an impoverished existence. Full of intriguing characters and lots of surprises…readers of literary fiction and 20th-century historical, as well as fans of wacky humor, will find it an excellent choice.” —*STARRED REVIEW* Library Journal
