About the Book

While Modo has spent a quiet winter recovering from his adventure in the dark deeps, talk is swirling around London of ancient Egyptian ruins in the midst of the Australian rainforest. A temple bulges with riches but also contains danger: the infamous God Face. No one knows what the God Face is or what it is made of, but it is rumoured to be a powerful weapon; anyone who looks upon it will be driven mad.

Modo’s next assignment? Go to Queensland in Australia and discover the truth behind the God Face. He won’t be alone: Octavia and even Mr. Socrates will be accompanying him, as well as Mrs. Finchley, Modo’s beloved caregiver from childhood. But hot on their trail is the Clockwork Guild, with a brand-new weapon: mechanical birds with sharpened metal claws and poisoned beaks.

With an airship battle, an escape from natives and an astounding discovery—one that hinges on Modo’s true appearance— the Hunchback Assignments continues to enthrall readers of all ages!
