Product Overview

There's a villain on the loose and he's got his sights set on one thing-your talent.

The hunched visitor clenched its cloak tight around its gangly form-advancing toward her with swift, bloodcurdling movements. Cressida wanted to move, to run, but there was something mesmerizing about the creature's hooded yellow eyes that kept her fixed to the spot. Her heart was beating hard .. . As the evening sun lit the towering figure, Cressida could see it in its entirety. It was the most frightful creature she had ever seen.

Beware! There's a villain on the loose and he's got his sights set on one thing---your talent. That thing that sets you apart from everyone else, that thing that makes you special---he wants it. And he'll do anything he can to take it. Even use his mysterious creature, which obeys him without question, to rip it right out of you.

Average, talentless Adam Bloom doesn't have a thing to worry about---his only talent is getting on people's nerves---until his sister, singing sensation Cressida Bloom, encounters the villain Fortescue and his immortal monster. And Adam makes it his mission to track down Fortescue and retrieve Cressida's and all the other stolen talents---no matter what the cost.

Brimming with colorful characters and dastardly villains, the talented Alex Williams presents a humorous adventure about where talent truly lies.
