Winner of the 2010 Independent Publisher Guild Digital Award.

Astral Legacies is an awesomely clever internet-linked adventure series that boys and girls of 7+ (and adults for that matter) will love. Readers can join in the quest in each book by searching for the hidden GPS locations on satellite mapping websites such as www.googlemaps.com and www.googleearth.com. By using the names of the discovered locations readers will be able to solve the puzzle at the end of each book revealing the location of seven artefacts that make up the Astral Legacies. As soon as that hidden location is submitted to www.astrallegacies.com it will unlock the thrilling climax to each story.

The first two books in the series have now been published – The Orca’s Song and The Tigers’ Secret. In each book, a child together with the help of an animal species, is tasked to find an Astral Legacy, with the future of the human race at stake.

The Orca’s Song will reveal the North American Legacy. With your help, Marshall, guided by orcas needs to solve the puzzle and reveal the location of one of the astral legacies.

The Tiger’s Secret will reveal the Asian Legacy if you the reader can solve the challenge faced by Asha and the tigers before it’s too late.
