Anna is a winning heroine who's eager to help her adopted kingdom in Brave Anna and the Star Compass, a fantasy for young readers whose quests are metaphors for larger life battles. Anna's willingness to fight alongside her friends speaks to that which is indomitable in the human spirit, while her faith in herself, and her self-determination, are inspiring.
Join Anna, a 12-year old from London, as she steps through a magic door and into a world plagued by corruption and greed. Anna must overcome challenges aplenty as she finds herself thrust into the role of heroine, responsible for saving the strange land she comes to know and love. Along the way, she meets eccentric characters right out of the pages of storybooks: a mad princess, a dashing lord, and a dark villain. Will Anna succeed in her quest to reunite the Royal Siblings and save the world?
As intruders enter their home, Anna's mother pushes her out the door from the root cellar whispering, "Be strong and follow the Compass."
The door leads not to the outside, but down a dark passage to a land where magic lies far beyond Anna's wildest imagination- where royal siblings who are engaged in a bitter struggle to rule the world must be brought together by the Star Compass- the legendary instrument that Anna's mother shoved in her backpack and told her to follow.
Through countless trials and tribulations, Anna meets the most peculiar of characters- some of whom are enemies, others who become friends- and perseveres to save the mysterious land she grows to love before it is destroyed forever by greed.
In the face of her bravery, no one realizes that Anna is struggling with a tragic secret- and one that might doom them all.
