WEFOUNDJake Ransom and the Skull King's Shadow


Nancy Drew is the main heroine of the series. She is voiced by Lani Minella from Secrets Can Kill through Sea of Darkness , plus the Dossier series . Claire Boynton also voiced a young Nancy during flashbacks in The Silent Spy .

Nancy is a young eighteen-year-old woman who has a remarkable ability to find -- and solve -- all sorts of mysteries. Though she claims she's an amateur detective, she has solved more than thirty major mysteries and shows no signs of stopping.

Nancy has a teddy bear named Mr. Woogle Wogle and a bulldog named Togo . Her mother also taught her to play the piano from a young age. When Nancy was little, she wore a rather ugly horse shirt to school and was teased for it. But instead of wearing something else, she wore that shirt every day in the hopes that her classmates would eventually appreciate her for who she is.

Schlitzie, possibly born Simon Metz , and legally Schlitze Surtees , was a American sideshow performer and occasional actor, best known for his role in the 1932. movie Freaksand his life-long career on the outdoor entertainment circuit as a major sideshow attraction with Barnum and Bailey, among others.

Schlitzie’s true birth date, name and location is unknown; it is commonly accepted, at least by what was inscribed on his death certificate , that he was born on September 10, 1901 in New York, though 1892 has also been considered as a possibility.

On the sideshow circuit, microcephalics were usually promoted as “pinheads” or “missing links”, and Schlitzie was billed under such titles as “The Last of the Aztecs”, “The Monkey Girl” or simply”What Is It?”, or was paired up with other microcephalics. One notable example of the latter was Schlitzie’s possible pairing with a microcephalic woman named Athelia, exhibited together as “Aurora and Natalia, the Aztec sisters”. This has led to claims that Aurora actually  was Schlitzie’s sister, but these claims are unsubstantiated.

When a mysterious envelope arrives for Jake Ransom, he and his older sister, Kady, are plunged into a gripping chain of events. An artifact found by their archeologist parents on the expedition from which they never returned leads Jake and Kady to a strange world inhabited by a peculiar mix of long-lost civilizations, a world that may hold the key to their parents’ disappearance-if Jake and Kady can survive long enough to solve the mystery.

"It's about time someone wrote one of those roller coaster thrillers adults have been relishing for young adults. Rollins skillfully blends archaeology with science and fantasy to create an entertaining and informative tale that will keep readers glued to his pages. We needed someone like James Rollins years ago - I am glad he has created this series."

"Loved it, loved it, loved it. I couldn't put it down. I was hooked right away and kept reading and reading all day. The writing was so vivid I could picture all the places in my mind. I know kids will love reading this. It is a great blending of dinosaurs, different cultures, and action. I know kids will run to the Internet to research some of the cultures or animals. Fabulous way to encourage book reading."
