Felix has a heart condition that threatens his life. His parents take him on holiday to Costa Rica, where they visit the Divide, a place where the waters that run down to the Pacific and Atlantic oceans separate.
But at this exact, magical spot Felix passes out, and when he opens his eyes, he discovers he's arrived in a back-to-front world where mythical creatures and magic are real, and humans and science are just rumour and legend. Luckily, Ironclaw - a griffin - takes him under his wing, and together with Betony, a tangle-girl, they set out to find a cure for Felix's condition and the way back home.
Fast-paced and funny, The Divide is a quirky and immensely enjoyable adventure which weaves in strands of ecology and mathematics, and the emergence of a multinational enterprise in an innocent world.
This is the first volume of a trilogy, and the Kindle edition has new illustrations by the author.
