The Babylon Game is the second magical book in the exciting new series The Seven Fabulous Wonders.
Based on the seven ancient wonders of the world, Katherine Roberts weaves an enticing web – where the ancient world meets pure fantasy.
The year is 539 BC. In the ancient city of Babylon – known as the gateway of God – Tia, the adopted daughter of a perfume maker, is gathering herbs in the sacred Amytis garden. Surrounding the hanging garden is a double defence wall, protecting Babylon from invaders. But between the double wall, Tia makes a wonderful discovery – for adding to the city’s defence is a pack of ancient dragons known as sirrush.
Fearing for the dragons, who look lean and hungry, Tia leaves them food. But when one of the dragons touches her hand, Tia is granted magical powers of such strength, they have the capacity to save or destroy Babylon. For out in the plains, the Persian King, Cyrus the Great, is planning to capture Tia’s city. The hanging gardens may hold the key to Babylon’s salvation but only one person can access their magic…
A CollinsVoyager title for 8 – 12 year-olds, boys and girls.
