The Threatening Fog

By Leon Ware
Level 9

Eben’s family, the Tyrells, have been seafarers for as long as anyone can remember. When Eben goes to spend the summer with his uncle Silas, a lobster fisherman who lives in the little seaside town of Rockhaven, he feels his dreams have come true. However, Eben soon finds out that nothing in Rockhaven—from his strange, quiet uncle to the Tyrell family name—is as he imagined. Through a series of maritime adventures and meaningful new friendships, Eben begins to uncover his family’s mysterious legacy while discovering his own hidden strength.
