About the Book
Title: Zoe & Zak and the Ghost Leopard (The Heroes of the Himalayas, Book #1) * Author: Lars Guignard * Publication Date: January 9, 2014 (2nd Edition) * Publisher: Fantastic Press * Pages: 338 * Recommended Age: 10+
Summary: For Percy Jackson and Harry Potter Fans
Some say all children are born with magic inside of them.
Zoe Guire is about to find out if that’s true.
Zoe doesn’t believe in ghosts. She doesn’t believe in mythical creatures. And she definitely doesn’t believe in magic. But it’s amazing how quickly everything you think you believe can change when you’re confronted by the impossible.
When Zoe finds herself lost, halfway around the world, her first thought is that she needs to get back to where she came from. Fast. But her friend Zak has other ideas, and when a peculiar snake charmer directs them deep into the Himalayan Mountains in search of a mythical leopard, what began as an accident soon takes on a life of its own.
Zoe isn’t worried. Not at first anyhow. Sure the talking elephant is strange, and the snake charming yogi is stranger, but she’s a big girl. She figures she can handle it. But then, somewhere between the living statues and the screeching monkeys, Zoe realizes that what is happening to her and Zak is no accident.
It’s the result of something Zoe has deep within her, an energy so powerful, yet so personal, that she alone can right a deadly wrong.
But nobody said confronting an ancient evil would be easy. And Zoe and Zak will have no chance at all unless they put aside their differences and believe.
Discover the magic inside of you. Join Zoe and Zak on their Himalayan adventure today.
*The adventure continues. When you’ve finished Zoe & Zak and the Ghost Leopard, be sure to read Book Two in the Zoe & Zak Series: The Yogi’s Curse, followed by Book Three, The Tiger Temple. And yes, Book Four is coming soon!
