I’m proud to unveil the cover of Catacombia, my upcoming novel for young readers, written under the pseudonym R.L. Ferguson. The first volume in a new fantasy trilogy, Catacombia tells the story of a boy called Sam who is unexpectedly plunged into a secret realm hidden deep underground.
Here’s the blurb:
After falling through a shaft in the middle of the night, 13-year-old Sam suddenly finds himself deep beneath the surface of the earth. Here he discovers Catacombia, a city both ancient and modern, filled with wonder, magic and puzzles. The deeper Sam delves into the secrets of Catacombia, the more questions he is forced to ask. Why do the inhabitants secretly whisper the name Grimorga? What lies behind the council’s plans to direct the fortunes of the underground city? And can Sam stop the mysterious cult that wants to destroy everything that Catacombia stands for?
First publication will be in German by Ravensburger, on May 31, 2021, under the title Catacombia: Abstieg in die Tiefe. Stay tuned for more details as the publication date approaches.
