Book 3
The epic conclusion to the trilogy bestselling author Adam Gidwitz called “a wild fantasy adventure” find siblings Max and Carter embroiled in the final battle against the evil Grannie Yaga!
 
On the mysterious Summer Isle, siblings Max and Carter discovered the magical land where the villainous Pied Piper led the children of Hamelin centuries ago. They were trapped outside of time in a never-ending clash against a vicious rat army. After a desperate battle with a cruel soul-stealing magician, Max and Carter found themselves separated: Max with their newfound allies (human and trollson alike), Carter with . . . the Piper.
 
Now Max is determined to reunite with her lost brother, restore her parents’ stolen souls, and escape the Summer Isle once and for all. But the wicked Grannie Yaga doesn’t intend for the siblings to leave without a fight.
 
But what role will the Piper play when all is said and done—and can he redeem himself from his own dark choices when his secrets are finally revealed?

“The Peddler’s Road begins as a creepy fairy tale–mystery and then explodes into a wild fantasy adventure. . . . Cody has begun what promises to be an epic trilogy.” —Adam Gidwitz, New York Times bestselling author of A Tale Dark and Grimm and The Inquisitor’s Tale
 
“Prepare to be enchanted. Like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, Cody spins a wildly inventive, deeply heartfelt tale that whisks you off to a magical land where fairy tales live and breathe—and frequently try to kill you. From the first page, I was a goner.” —John Stephens, New York Times bestselling author of The Emerald Atlas
Book 2
The second book in the trilogy bestselling author Adam Gidwitz called “epic” and “a wild fantasy adventure” finds siblings Max and Carter and their allies battling new foes, relying on new friends, and fighting for stakes higher than ever!
 
After narrowly escaping the Pied Piper at the end of The Peddler’s Road, Max and Carter have been separated. Max has returned to the real world and will stop at nothing to find her way back to her brother on the Summer Isle. The only way to return is with a mysterious key, controlled by the dastardly wizard Vodnik, who is holding the souls of Max and Carter’s parents hostage. Meanwhile, Carter has been separated from his friends and is left with a very untrustworthy companion: the Pied Piper himself!
 
Along the way, Max and Carter are joined by a bashful trollson, a daring elf, a seafaring hobgoblin, and the ever-loyal kobold Bandybulb. As their paths converge, they prepare for the most important quests yet: save their parents and send the children of New Hamelin home to their own place and time!

Book 1
“Explodes into a wild fantasy adventure. . . . Cody has begun what promises to be an epic trilogy.” —Adam Gidwitz, New York Times bestselling author of A Tale Dark and Grimm
 
It is said that in the thirteenth century, in a town called Hamelin, a piper lured all of the children away with his magical flute, and none of them were ever seen again.
 
Today, tough, pink-haired Max and her little brother, Carter, are stuck in modern-day Hamelin with their father . . . until they are also led away by the Piper to a place called the Summer Isle. There they meet the original stolen children, who haven’t aged a day and who have formed their own town, vigilantly guarded from the many nightmarish beings that roam the land.
 
No one knows why the Piper stole them, but Max and Carter may be the key to returning the lost children of Hamelin. Together they set out on the Peddler’s Road to find their way back to the real world.
 
This swashbuckling journey is perfect for fans of Rump and A Tale Dark and Grimm. Don’t miss the second adventure in the series, The Magician’s Key!
