The Mythics: Marina and the Kraken (Mythics #1)
From Case Closed author Lauren Magaziner and artist Mirelle Ortega comes the first book in a new highly illustrated middle grade fantasy series. Full of action, adventure, and friendship, a team of five girls must stop a powerful villain by finding their mythical familiars.
It's Pairing Day in Terrafamiliar! Marina has been waiting for this moment--anxiously--for as long as she can remember. Because today's the day she gets to bond with her animal familiar for life, like every other ten-year-old in the land.
Except after the ceremony ends, Marina doesn't have one. And she's not alone . . . four other girls also didn't get their animal companions. The leaders of Terrafamiliar realize something special is happening: Marina and the other four girls--Kit, Ember, Pippa, and Hailey--are called Mythics
In times of unrest, the Mythics must earn their Mythies--mythical beasts--in quests of courage. But danger lurks everywhere as there are others seeking this mysterious power. And only the Mythics can save Terrafamiliar!
