Vi Spy: The Girl with the Golden Gran
The third and final edge-of-your-seat adventure in Maz Evans's laugh-out-loud funny Vi Spy series!
Vi has tried to save the Earth before … and failed.
Now, her world faces a terrible threat: her Gran is seriously ill.
Time is not on their side. And with the world’s number one enemy laughing at them from space, she and her family blast off on an adventure that is truly out of this world …
A laugh-out-loud funny, high-octane spy story that perfectly combines humour and heart: addresses the realities of being caught between divorcing parents.

Elliot’s mum is ill and his home is under threat, but a shooting star crashes to earth and changes his life forever. The star is Virgo – a young Zodiac goddess on a mission. But the pair accidentally release Thanatos, a wicked death daemon imprisoned beneath Stonehenge, and must then turn to the old Olympian gods for help. After centuries of cushy retirement on earth, are Zeus and his crew up to the task of saving the world – and solving Elliot’s problems too?
A new, exciting and brilliantly British Percy Jackson-esque adventure – the first in a series centred on the Olympian gods.
