Killmaiden's Compendium of Uncommon Occurences

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


If it's in this world, it's in this book. Killmaiden's Compendium of Uncommon Occurrences has deployed Explorers on expeditions to uncover the beauty and dark mysteries of the Wide World for over 500 years. Twelve-year old Scout, Alexander Drake, has gone on many missions for the Compendium, but none as important as this one. He's going to find his father if he has to cross the Wide World to do it. He's taking his younger sister, their governess and an unexpected stowaway on his desperate assignment. Their journey will be one of the Compendium's greatest stories, if only they can return to tell it.

Customer Reviews

A fantastical new world

Shapiro has created an incredibly vivid world; an alternative universe similar to our own, filled with astonishing twists and turns and just the right amount of magic and the unexplainable. His descriptions of locale are illuminating, his pace energizing, and his characters eminently likeable. His is a world in which the heroes--all children--behave like the brave, loyal, kindhearted, moral people we all wish we could be. I highly recommend this book for kids and adults alike and hope it develops into a series. Can't wait to see where the characters go next.

Really fun read for all ages

Similar to stories like Harry Potter and the Chronicles of Narnia, the protagonist and his crew make you want to be a part of their gang, however Killmaiden’s is really an adventure of its own. It’s a fascinating tale of adventure with a twist of humor and lots creativity!
