|‘Ian’s storytelling left me white-knuckled with excitement and in awe of Emily, a thoroughly believable and likeable heroine who is the new champion of our seas.’ Kate Humble |
This is the third of Emily’s time-travelling adventures with Pharaoh, an ancient whale who wants to show the human race how to save the marine environment – before it’s too late.
Emily is a top young supermodel with a busy schedule, but her glamorous career takes second place to the most important thing in her life: looking after the planet. On her way to a catwalk show in Rio de Janeiro, Emily visits Mexico to explore the damaged coral reefs. While she is there, Pharaoh whisks Emily away on a thrilling and dangerous quest to find a vital message that could help to save the planet.
The message is written on a sacred stone in a long-forgotten language. Her only hope is to bring it back to the modern world, where archaeologists have learnt to translate the ancient hieroglyphs.
Can Emily survive the bloodthirsty rituals of an ancient Mexican civilisation and outwit the ruthless Spanish conquistadores to complete her mission? Can this really be her last adventure with Pharaoh?
