Description
In this first volume of the series, Julius sets off after an extraordinary flower, last mentioned by the ancient Greek philosopher Theophrastus and steeped in legend. Soon he's in the company of silent film star Lily Lawrence and former Hollywood stunt pilot Tayaut, with thugs and reporters on his tail. Beautifully drawn in the "ligne clair" art style associated with The Adventures of Tintin, Garen Ewing's graphic novel series for 9-to-12-year-old readers won the Young People's Comic Award at the 2013 British Comic Awards. Julius Chancer—adventurous assistant to historical researcher Sir Alfred Catesby-Grey—embarks on a hazardous quest for the mythical rainbow orchid that takes him from 1920s Britain to the Indus Valley, and even deeper into the mysterious Hindu Kush. But hot on their heels is ambitious tycoon Urkaz Grope and his henchmen, intent on stealing the Trembling Sword of Tybalt Stone.

"The between-the-wars setting is meticulously rendered, the storyline intricate and engrossing.... Ewing has crafted something at once reverential and joyous that has a life of its own."—Financial Times (London)

"I couldn't like it more if I tried.... It is all so beautifully done: the historical references are spot on ... the dialogue is pitch perfect.... The result is one of the most satisfying comics around, whether you are a small boy, or a grown woman."—Observer (London)
