The Canticle Kingdom is Michael Young's first book. It's a YA fantasy, filled with plenty of action and adventure.
It’s seemed like ages since Kate’s father went off to war, and she is eager to thank him for the beautiful German music box he sent for her birthday. But when it starts playing a strange, new melody and Kate vanishes into thin air, Captain Edison is willing to do anything to rescue his little girl.
When the Canticle Kingdom is attacked and the queen falls deathly ill, Johann, a young blacksmith’s apprentice, learns a terrible secret—the kingdom is contained entirely within a music box in another world. With the help of his friends,Johann races to bring aid from that other world in an effort to stop the dark power that threatens to destroy them all.
Enter a beautiful world full of magic, danger, loyalty, and bravery in The Canticle Kingdom, and discover that even the most ordinary objects and people might be hiding something truly wonderful inside.
