More in adventure fiction

'Jungle' Jim Regent is destined to protect the tribes of deepest, darkest Borneo from the sinister schemes of a terrifying other-dimensional army called the Tribe of Shadows. In this hilarious modern spin on the timeless werewolf myth, young ice-hockey star, 'Jungle' Jim Regent, travels to Borneo looking for lost love and adventure, getting more than he bargained for after he is cursed by a tribe of mysterious Iban Headhunters. Because now, whenever the moon turns orange, Jim's body convulses and he transforms turning into an 8 foot-tall talking orangutan. He's not a werewolf, he's a werangutan. He's not a monster, but the Protector of Borneo – and the world beyond... The cursed Jim now finds himself living the double life of a superhero as he battles the forces of the Shadow Emperor, an evil overlord who has been dragged into our universe by the reckless Dark Matter experiments of the mad scientist Doctor Gila. These diabolical villains command their army of Dark Matter Shadows from the ruins of a top-secret US government laboratory buried deep beneath the mighty Mount Kinabalu. But Jim is not alone in his battle against the darkness. Fighting alongside him is an oddball group of friends and colleagues: Rufus McFly, a young academic whose expert knowledge of ancient civilisations is invaluable to Jim; Ruthie Moo, a beautiful and resourceful British Secret Agent and Jim's college sweetheart; Sengalang, the ancient shaman of the Iban Headhunters; Wira, a highly intelligent baby orangutan fully trained in espionage; and a team of specially trained monkeys! Together they are thrown head long into the darkest depths of the Borneo rainforest to shed some light on the mysterious Shadows of Kinabalu. From their ramshackle base within The Moody Cow, Ruthie’s bar in the 'floating village' of Kampong Ayer, this band of unlikely heroes must survive a crazy, colourful, ancient, dangerous world, where nothing is what it seems and everything, from the other-dimensional bad guys to the creepy crawlies are out to get you... Just when you thought it was safe to enter the jungle... the world got a whole lot darker...
Billy Clikk’s just your ordinary, run-of-the-mill . . . hero? A guy whose hobbies include skateboarding, extreme mountain biking—and a brand of snowboarding he wishes would include a few good old-fashioned body slams. Unfortunately, 12-year-old Billy’s boring home town of Piffling, Indiana, will probably never host the X Games. But that doesn’t stop him from bungee jumping off a bridge and winning the X-Sports Challenge in front of Dave’s Cycle and Fitness.

Then one day, things suddenly get more interesting. Billy discovers his insect-exterminating parents—supposedly the best in Piffling—have been living a double life. In just a few short hours, he’s sucked into a world that his parents have been trying to hide from him. And this world is much bigger, stranger, and scarier than the one he left behind. How could his own dull parents have so many secrets that even their secrets have secrets?

On the bright side, this could be Billy’s chance to fight some real bad guys: the huge kind with teeth and too many hairy tentacles to count. Within a few hours of learning the truth, he’s flying to India and testing out some very cool James Bond–style gadgetry, things no average 12-year-old can even imagine. But before Billy can fight alongside his parents, he’ll have to prove himself. Being a hero doesn’t always mean getting the bad guy—sometimes it means keeping a cool head to figure out what’s really going on. And at the end of the day, Billy just might get to save the world—or go down trying.
