ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- You can't keep a good adventurer down, and this book follows the original Mapmaker Chronicles! Quinn has settled down onto the farm he won for his exploits, kept busy reproducing his wonderful map. He's starting to feel a little bit restless though, and his oldest brother is always spoiling for a fight. When Quinn escapes an attempted abduction, he learns that other kingdoms are interested in his abilities, and so his King and his former captain decide to send him out into the unknown away from their enemies. Quinn and two unlikely companions are entrusted to distant cousin Lord Thornten's care, and sail out into the unmapped seas - and of course, plots are discovered, dangers faced, and adventures embarked upon! A rollicking read which those who have read the first three books should thoroughly enjoy! Lindy Jones


Quinn is back! He finished his race around the world and is living a quiet life on the family farm, until he discovers that the King's enemies want to capture him. Quinn is forced to go on the run, taking to the high seas once more. Can he survive when he is double-crossed and left for dead? BEYOND THE EDGE OF THE MAP is another thrilling adventure from A.L. Tait in the bestselling Mapmaker Chronicles.

A.L. Tait grew up dreaming of world domination. Unfortunately, at the time there were only alphabet sisters B.L. and C.A. and long-suffering brother M.D.M. to practise on ... and parents who didn't look kindly upon sword fights, plank-walking or bows and arrows. But dreams don't die and The Mapmaker Chronicles and The Ateban Cipher, the author's series of books for children, are the result. A.L. lives in country New South Wales with a family, a garden and three goldfish. A.L. Tait writes fiction and non-fiction for adults under another name.
