Gabriel Nemo has never been your normal, everyday twelve-year-old. As a descendant of the famous Captain Nemo, he’s determined to use his Nemotech legacy for good. He and his best friends Peter and Misty spend their days studying at the elite Nemo Institute and in their spare time, run rescue missions in Gabriel’s submarine The Obscure.

Praise for the Young Captain Nemo series:

"There’s both futuristic and classic steampunk appeal here, admirably mixing Jules Verne lore with 007-level gadgetry. Stakes are high, the pace is fast, and there are excellent (and surprisingly subtle) messages of coping with childhood loneliness and the importance of taking care of our planet’s oceans." —Booklist on Young Captain Nemo

Praise for Quest for the Nautilus: Young Captain Nemo

"Once again, Henderson has readers diving into the ocean’s depths on an adventure-packed quest with Gabriel and his crew.

Gabriel and his crew will please seafaring science nerds or anyone seeking a new group of characters to love." —School Library Journal
