Two dads, five siblings, and goggles!

Grim Doyle has always known his life was not exactly "normal", and things get even more curious when he discovers a set of stones that sweep him and his family to the fantasy, steampunk world of Verne - a place they had escaped from years ago. Now that they've returned, Grim and his siblings hide from the evil Lord Victor and his minions. And while learning about Jinns, Mystics, and the power of absinth they try to discover who is trying to kill them with the deadly Scourge.

"This book is one part J.K. Rowling, one part Lemony Snicket, one part H.G Wells/Jules Verne, and all parts awesome!"

Grim certainly takes things in his stride, doesn't he?! I think I'd be just a tad more anxious about being zapped into another world...

If there wasnt a black stone, I would have said they were infinity stones 😆

Like it. Particularly the children's characters and the dynamics of their relationships. Mechanical mice, decapitated dolls and bottle-bottom goggles; all good in my book.
