Eleanor is a serious, intelligent teenager with a slightly bonkers mother. She is also a Time Strider and a Dragon Slayer. When the time tracks align, Catherine - the Time Interpreter shows Eleanor the route to her destiny where she must leave childhood and comforts behind and fight for the survival of strangers who exist in a time loop.
The Man Betrayer has taught the higher dragons to speak. No longer individual menaces, the creatures communicate, plot and join with more sadistic allies. When the she-devil - Maligna Satana, teams up with Brute Festeral - giant bull dragon and Doom Bringer of the Cold Lands, it seems that the Dragon Slayers who have so far protected Moreth will be defeated.
Eleanor has unreliable help from the mathmagicians - otherwise known as Enquates - creatures who exist in each other's mind spaces.
In the course of her heroic adventure, Eleanor finds a clue to her own identity, past and future.
Previously, Charlie had bumped into the infamous Jakeman -- but when the mad professor was dragged down into the Underworld, Charlie had to follow - otherwise, how would he discover how to get back to his mum and dad?

But will Charlie Small ever find a way out, or will he be trapped underground forever . . . ?
Ancell and the intrepid crew of “Misty Dawn” sail for South America in search of the children held captive by the brutal pirate, Laughing Jack. But secure in his lair deep in the Amazon rainforest, Laughing Jack is gloating over his plans to put an end to his foes.
The anaconda, the albatross, the dolphins, the whales and even the tiny storm petrel join the sailors in a battle that rages from the depths of the jungle to the high seas. But when “Misty Dawn” is becalmed and Laughing Jack triumphantly has her at his mercy, only the killer whales can save the sailors – however, killer whales are notoriously unpredictable, and their help is far from certain. What is not in doubt is that only one ship will survive the day...
Ancell’s Final Battle is an adventure story with a lovable cast of determined, but often comical animal sailors whose banter never ceases, however dire their circumstances. Both exciting and heart-warming, it explores the themes of friendship and courage and will be enjoyed by children aged 9-14.
