Will is on the journey of a lifetime as he accompanies his father on an epic journey across the vast, 19th-century Canadian countryside. Travelling on a gigantic and stunning train, The Boundless, Will soon learns that, as well as hundreds of passengers and treasures beyond belief, the train has ever-more exciting and sometimes dangerous things to discover.


When he witnesses a brutal murder, it is up to Will to save the train. Racing through the endless carriages and aided by his escape artist friend Maren and the amazing circus ringmaster Mr Dorian, Will experiences the adventure of a lifetime.


Though, with dastardly murderers not far behind, that lifetime might not last long.


This is a rollercoaster of a read, with thrilling turns, dazzling characters and non-stop action. The Boundless will leave you breathless.
