Description


In the thrilling second book of the Magnificent 12 series, Mack MacAvoy is challenged by his spectral mentor, Grimluk—who only appears in the shiny chrome pipes of bathrooms.

Mack must find the ancient ones, the great forgotten forces. Some will help; some not so much. But above all—

  • Learn the ways of Vargran!
  • Assemble the twelve!
  • Go to the nine dragons of Daidu.
  • Go to the Egge rocks.
  • Beware of . . . the trap.

Time is short! The wicked Pale Queen’s three-thousand-year banishment ends in thirty-five days, and she will be free to destroy the world. It’s up to Mack to stop her return. But what do all of Grimluk’s clues mean? Can Mack achieve everything he must do without getting killed by the evil Risky—and escape the trap?

The Magnificent 12: The Trap is another fast-paced episode in bestselling author Michael Grant’s hilarious fantasy-adventure series.

About the Author


Michael Grant is the New York Times bestselling author of the Gone series. He has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving, and in fact he became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn't tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica. He lives in California with his wife, Katherine Applegate, and their two children.

Praise for The Magnificent 12: The Trap…


“Grant’s talent for quick dialogue and vivid descriptions still shines and will have fans eager for book three.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“Mack has but 35 more days to find 11 other preteens who...can together prevent the world-destroying Pale Queen from escaping 3,000 years of imprisonment... in this above-average, distinctly nonserious quest fantasy.”
-ALA Booklist

“Well-written and hilarious...The action moves at a breakneck pace but never seems rushed. The characters are consistently entertaining and engaging. Grant knows when to dial down the humor and let the gravity of the plot take center stage.”
-School Library Journal
