THE MAGNIFICENT 12: THE TRAP (on-sale tomorrow!) is another fast-paced episode in New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant’s hilarious fantasy adventure series. Mack MacAvoy already answered The Call. Now he must assemble the Magnificent Twelve and avoid The Trap if he’s to save the world from the wicked Pale Queen. But time is short—the Pale Queen’s banishment ends in 35 days and she will be free to destroy the world! Can Mack assemble the Twelve and avoid The Trap? You can check out my review here tomorrow! Go here to see my review of the first book in the series.

To join the adventure, read along as Michael Grant introduces characters new and old from the world of The Magnificent 12 and gives sneak peeks at their adventures in THE TRAP. Each post will also reveal a clue about a worldly location the Magnificent Twelve visit in THE TRAP. Follow Michael Grant and the characters to each blog until you’ve discovered all eight locations. At the final stop on the blog tour, enter all eight locations to win a signed copy of both MAGNIFICENT 12 books!

Ready to get your Mag 12 on? Here’s your fourth character and clue:

Post #4: Jarrah Major
The last thing you can call Jarrah Major is a girly-girl. She wears her blonde hair in a pony-tail, drinks her coffee in one long gulp, and will never say no to some good old-fashioned physical work. She has strong shoulders, a direct gaze, and an unnerving way of saying exactly what she means. She’s also a bit of a dare-devil. There’s nothing she likes more than flying through the air in a dune buggy, making every single one of her bones rattle inside her. This makes her pretty much the opposite of Mack in every way, except that they are both part of The Magnificent Twelve, something they figured out during a particularly eventful trip to Australia’s famous Uluru in THE CALL. In THE TRAP, this Australian thrill-seeker is off on another adventure with Mack, looking for the rest of the Twelve . . . and trying to avoid getting killed by Princess Risky.

Clue: THE TRAP location #4: This location is an ancient distinctive rock formation in Germany. It’s sort of like the German equivalent of Uluru, which you might remember from BOOK 1: THE CALL. Giant rocks. Gotta love ’em.

Find the next clue Wednesday at  Alison's Bookmarks!

And just in case you missed the first three clues, we’ll fill you in:

Clue: THE TRAP location #1: If you’re in Beijing, China and craving deep-fried crickets, centipedes, and lizards for dinner, this is the place to go. Hint: it’s not McDonald’s!

Clue: THE TRAP location #2: With 9,999 rooms, this is the world’s largest surviving palace complex. For 9,999 bonus points, memorize a map of this place. (Note: We lied—there aren’t any bonus points. But if you still want to memorize a map of 9,999 rooms . . . you’re crazy.)

Clue: THE TRAP location #3: People say you can see this Chinese monument from space. We’ve never been to space, so we can’t say for sure if that’s true, but it’s definitely HUGE. For a bonus point, build a model of this monument out of 1 million Popsicle sticks. (Note: We lied again. No bonus points. But we’ll help you eat Popsicles if you want.)
