The Cryptid Duology

Lija Fisher’s Cryptid Duology is a fun middle-grade series about a boy who inherits a job hunting mythological creatures.

After Clivo Wren’s archaeologist father dies mysteriously, the newly orphaned thirteen-year-old learns the truth: his dad was actually a cryptid catcher, tracking down legendary beasts around the world—including the one cryptid whose blood grants immortality.

Now, it falls to Clivo and his band of Myth Blasters to find and identify the extraordinary immortal cryptid before those with more sinister agendas seeking long-lasting life do…

“[Fisher] dishes up an action-oriented romp, puts a resourceful but not superhuman protagonist at the head of a colorful, diverse (of species as well as race) supporting cast, and salts the plot with tantalizing hints that the stakes are about to broaden.”—Booklist (starred review on The Cryptid Catcher)
