Author David Owen becomes Book Fairy For A Day with Alex Neptune series

“Alex took a bracing breath of salty air and drew his hands through the cool water.”

The Book Fairies have been celebrating the release of the latest Alex Neptune story today! Author David Owen joined in the fun along the seafront of Brighton and Hove to share copies of all three books in the series: Dragon Thief, Pirate Hunter and Monster Avenger.

About Monster Avenger:

Get ready for an epic mission INSIDE a water dragon in Alex Neptune’s third fast and funny adventure – perfect for fans of Percy Jackson and Dragon Realm!

The sea creatures near Haven Bay are acting very strangely, attacking boats, and Alex senses some dark power is controlling them. When he tracks down his friend the water dragon, he finds it’s been infected too. If he can’t find a way to stop it, the deadly parasite it’s carrying could spread throughout the seas.

After battling storms, electric eels and an army of angry crabs, Alex realises that the only way he and his team can save the dragon and all their ocean friends is by going inside the dragon…gulp!

“It was so much fun to be a Book Fairy for the day! Hiding the books around my local town felt like such a positive thing to do and seeing it happen all over the country was so exciting – it created a real buzz around the book”

— David Owen, Author of the Alex Neptune series
