Blog Tour Contest & Educator Guide for The Treacherous Seas

I’m delighted today to be hosting a stop on the official blog tour for A Perilous Journey of Danger & Mayhem #2: The Treacherous Seas by Christopher Healy. I love Chris’s books, and the first book in this series, A Dastardly Plot, was simply delightful! Book 2 is in stores now, but we’ve got your chance to win a copy on today’s blog post — plus check out the fabulous educator’s guide below.

It is 1883—only a few months after Molly Pepper, her mother, Cassandra,  and her friend Emmett, saved New York from an attack by the megalomaniacal Ambrose Rector while managing to preserve the reputations of Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison, whose technology was manipulated in Rector’s scheme. Their selfless heroism will finally earn them a place in the Inventors’ Guild, alongside the greatest minds of their generation.

Unless, of course, no one knows that they did any of that. Left with nothing but empty promises and a struggling pickle shop after the government chooses to cover up the crisis, Molly, Cassandra, and Emmett have no idea where to turn—until they learn of a daring expedition to the South Pole, where an meteorite of mysterious power is embedded, and where Emmett’s father, explorer and ship captain Wendell Lee, disappeared years ago.

With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, our heroes commandeer an experimental seacraft to make their play on the pole. But the trip is more treacherous than they realize, and there’s no guarantee that they will return successful—if they even return at all.

Christopher Healy is the author of the novels A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem #1: A Dastardly Plot, The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom, a New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice, its two sequels, The Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle and The Hero’s Guide to Being an Outlaw and the picture book This Is Not That Kind Of Book. Before becoming a writer, he worked as an actor, an ad copywriter, a toy store display designer, a fact-checker, a dishwasher, a journalist, a costume shop clothing stitcher, a children’s entertainment reviewer, and a haunted house zombie. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, two children, and a dog named Duncan. You can visit him online at

  1. The most treacherous trip I ever took was also on a boat. It was a small ferry from Iraklion Crete to Haifa Israel in the early 1990s. There was a huge storm and most of the boats did not go out that day but ours did. The waves were much taller than the boat itself and the 8 hour trip took about 15 hours. We were thrown all over the boat, doors were torn off by the wind, and everyone, except for just a few of us, was violently ill. We did land safely in Israel eventually but we walked with sea legs for two full days after that.

  2. The most treacherous journey I’ve ever taken was flying in a puddle jumper aircraft in a blizzard and the landing took two tries as we missed the runway due to high winds the first pass.

  3. “What’s the most ‘treacherous’ journey you’ve ever taken?” I took the elevated rail system from San Diego and then walked into Tijuana, Mexico. None of the Mexican border agents seemed to care.
