Read an exclusive extract from Escape Room – the mind-blowing new thriller from award-winning author Christopher Edge

In February we’re very excited to be publishing Escape Room, from the multi-award-winning author of The Longest Night of Charlie Noon, The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day and The Many Worlds of Albie Bright, Christopher Edge. This thrilling new adventure, set in an escape room unlike any other you’ve experienced before, challenges you to think about what you’ve done to save the world today.

And today we’re delighted to be sharing a preview of the book – you can read the first few chapters below!

When twelve-year-old Ami arrives at The Escape, she thinks it’s just a game – the ultimate escape room with puzzles and challenges to beat before time runs out. Meeting her teammates, Adjoa, Ibrahim, Oscar and Min, Ami learns from the Host that they have been chosen to save the world and they must work together to find the Answer. But as he locks them inside the first room, they quickly realise this is no ordinary game.

From a cavernous library of dust to an ancient Mayan tomb, a deserted shopping mall stalked by extinct animals to the command module of a spaceship heading to Mars, the perils of The Escape seem endless. Can Ami and her friends find the Answer before it’s too late?

Perfect for readers aged 9+, Escape Room is a gripping, edge-of-your-seat thriller filled with incredible action, twists and turns.
