The Grave Robber's ApprenticeBook - 2012
Hans, a foundling raised by a grave robber, helps Countess Angela Gabriela, nearly thirteen, when she is torn away from her dream of being a professional puppeteer by an evil archduke out to destroy her and her parents.
Hans doesn't know who he is or where he came from. When he was a baby, he washed ashore in a wooden box and was adopted by the conniving grave robber, Knobbe the Bent. Now fate has thrown him together with Angela von Schwanenberg, a young countess fleeing for her life from the evil Archduke Arnulf and his dreaded Necromancer. Together, these friends are on a daring quest to discover Hans' true identity and to save Angela's parents from the archduke.
Join Hans and Angela on their grand adventure as they ride through the depths of the great forest, sled down a mountain in a coffin, and sneak along the secret passageways of the archduke's palace. The Grave Robber's Apprentice is a world of highwaymen, hermits, and dancing bears; and of a boy separated from his family by the sea.
In this world anything is possible with luck and imagination—even for a grave robber's apprentice.
Fleeing the adopted father who wants to force him into the family grave-robbing trade, Hans unexpectedly teams up with 12-year-old Countess Angela, who is desperate to escape marriage to an evil archduke. By the award-winning author of Chandra's Secrets. 17,000 first printing.
