A larger threat raises its head in the form of hideous hibernating creatures with a devious plan involving summoning a monster from the very depths of the ocean.

About the Author
Adam Biggs is the author of the novels The Heart of Sitnatia and The Curse of the Vendra. He lives in Birmingham, England. When he was only thirteen years old, his English Drama Teacher (and first official fan) submitted his play Where's Rudolf? to the headmaster and it was produced into that year's school pantomime. This cemented his love of entertaining people through his pen rather than taking to the stage himself. By the age of sixteen he was sending comedy scripts to the BBC, at seventeen writing short stories for a local children's charities in Dorset, where he lived, such as Edwin and A Friend for Life. He took a few years break from writing coming back at the age of thirty-seven with an idea for a series of books: The Heart of Sitnatia, The Curse of the Vendra and The Truth of the Lamia (working title).
