Read full description of the books The Dark Deeps:The second book in the bestselling series! Each novel is a stand alone story.
Fantastical adventure for fans of James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, and Jules Verne...
Transforming his appearance and stealing secret documents from the French is all in a day’s work for fourteen-year-old Modo, a British secret agent. But his latest mission—to uncover the underwater mystery of something called the Ictíneo—seems impossible. There are rumors of a sea monster and a fish as big as a ship. French spies are after it, and Mr. Socrates, Modo’s master, wants to find it first. Modo and his fellow secret agent, Octavia, begin their mission in New York City, then take a steamship across the North Atlantic. During the voyage, Modo uncovers an astounding secret.
The Dark Deeps is set in a fascinating Steampunk Victorian world. Modo’s underwater adventures and his encounters with the young French spy Colette Brunet, the fearless Captain Monturiol, and the dreaded Clockwork Guild guarantee a gripping read filled with danger, suspense, and brilliant inventions.
"The adventure continues to soar-anyone who hasn't started the series yet should grab both volumes right now."
"Readers will quickly take the bate, hooked until the last line is cast."
Saskatoon Star Phoenix
"Set in Victorian London, the story clips along at a fast pace as the pair explore sunken ships, confront supposed sea monsters, and take on a French spy. The suspense makes this a good choice for reluctant readers."
School Library Journal
"This sequel is a pleasure to read and a solid addition to a series that promises to escalate...The real cliffhanger, however, is the fate of Modo's sweet soul. His vulnerability and his idealism endear the hunchback as a surprisingly complex character, not just another action hero."
The Globe and Mail
