About this title

Synopsis:


Barrie. Baum. Carroll. The Grimms. They tried to warn us. But we won't listen for another two hundred years.

After soundly throttling The Escape National Champions, seventeen year-old Horatio Gaph is approached by a short, stubby creature delivering a curious box wrapped in nine pieces of brown paper and smelling like...peppermint. Inside, a somewhat plain, somewhat boring music pipe and a note requesting its return, but with no return address. While working to unravel the origin of the music pipe, Horatio learns baffling truths about himself and his family-that he is a descendant of the Children of Hamelin, the famed boys and girls led away by the notorious Pied Piper. 

Horatio Gaph teams up with Annie Walker, his girlfriend with an extraordinary gift for music and Linus Sob, a fairytale know-it-all. They discover clues and instruction in the writings and actions of L. Frank Baum, the Brothers Grimm, JM Barrie, and Lewis Carroll that not only suggest that the fairy tales told by these men are real, but the delivery of Horatio's music pipe will dramatically change the nature of this world's existence.

In a thrilling race around the globe, Horatio, Annie and Linus seek the four keys that will unlock the secrets of the music pipe while being pursued by the fierce, apocalyptic government, The Synarch, and the powerful, mysterious group known as the Wizards, an organization hell-bent on stopping Horatio from returning the music pipe to its proper owner. Unless Horatio can solve the fantastic riddles before being caught or worse, the truths about these fairytales-and the unrealized potential of this world-will forever be lost.

The Children of Hamelin is a blistering-paced, thoughtful Young Adult adventure that keeps readers guessing through its explosive conclusion.

From the Back Cover:

THE UNITED STATES IS DEAD. 
THE SYNARCH RULE IS TOTAL. 
AND THE ONLY HOPE IS A FAIRY TALE. 

Everyone knows the Pied Piper rid a town of rats and when the town did not pay, he took their children instead and were never heard from again. It's a fairy tale that has been told for centuries. 

Except, it isn't a fairy tale. It is history. 

Horatio Gaph, hero of The Escape and to lo-pry everywhere, not only learns he is a pure descendent of those lost Children, but that he has been called to lead them home. He faces a choice that will affect the fates of two worlds: the one in which he lives, where he alone can raise his district out of poverty and into a better life by winning The Escape. The other, an unseen world where unknown millions are threatened by a growing shadow of evil. Their only hope is the return of the fabled Children of Hamelin.
