Felix is a special sort of hero. He is brave and resourceful, but has a heart condition that threatens his life. His parents take him on holiday to Costa Rica, where they visit the Divide, a place where the waters that run down to the Pacific and Atlantic oceans separate. But at this exact, magical spot Felix faints, and when he opens his eyes, he discovers he's arrived in an amazing back-to-front world where mythical creatures and magic are real, and humans and science are just rumour and legend. Luckily, Ironclaw, a fearsome, but kindly brazzle takes him under his wing, and together with Bettony, a tangle-girl, they set out to find a cure for Felix's condition and the way back home. And so begins a journey beyond their wildest dreams. Fast-paced and funny, The Divide is a quirky and immensely enjoyable adventure.
