When 12-year-old Jimmy Rourke travels to the Hydroverse, a watery universe nourished by streams of starlight, he becomes the Chimaera—a hero with the combined powers of the Animal Kingdom.
To prevent the cataclysmic Big Freeze, Jimmy goes on a mission guided by Speck, a talking spider, and the mysterious sorceress Elane. Danger lurks in the Temple of Champions, the Council of animal ambassadors is divided, and it’s up to Jimmy to protect an endless ocean of life.
Jimmy befriends ambassadors of different species, discovers living breathing dinosaurs, battles enormous insects, and learns about animal science by mimicking the most incredible creatures on Earth. On his journey, Jimmy grapples with issues of trust, self-control, and problem-solving in a complex world that often misleads him.
Jimmy Chimaera & the Temple of Champions is sold for $12.00 in paperback and $5.00 for Kindle. Preview pages are available through Amazon’s “search inside” feature, and more information is available at www.KevinFolliard.com.
