This is book number 3 in the Mythics series.


From Case Closed author Lauren Magaziner and award-winning artist Mirelle Ortega comes the third book in the highly illustrated middle grade fantasy series full of action, adventure, friendship, and mythical creatures.

It’s been eight weeks since Pairing Day when the Mythics—Kit, Marina, Hailey, Ember, and Pippa—learned that they are the only ones who can save Terrafamiliar. With Golden Jumpsuit tracking their every move, the Mythics are on edge, and now it’s Kit’s turn to find her Mythie. Kit has a hard time relying on others and she always expects the worst to happen. She’s also never had a team like the Mythics to help her.

Kit’s search for her mythical familiar leads to surprising secrets about the magic and history of Terrafamiliar. The Mythics realize there are bigger and darker forces at play.

With Golden Jumpsuit on their trail again and her followers scattered everywhere, Kit and the Mythics must learn to follow their instincts and lean on each other. Or risk watching Terrafamiliar crumble before their eyes.

“This swashbuckling adventure is the perfect entry point into a new literary world.” — Booklist

Praise for Book 1 in Case Closed Series: “The ‘choose your own adventure’ format adds a fun twist, offering readers different options, like whom to interview, what to examine, and which clues to follow. An entertaining romp that will appeal to fans of humorous mysteries.”  — School Library Journal

"The characters are real kids dealing with real worries. Carlos is so concerned about money that he takes on the near-impossible task of solving a case for his mother, but it’s this concern that makes him endearing.

Magaziner blends the fun of interactive stories with a suspenseful mystery and delightful characters."  — Booklist
