And adults will, too!
Grayson North can't catch a break.
He's going to be late to work, again. And it's not like he doesn't have enough troubles. His older brother Jason is cool and handsome and never makes mistakes, and his younger brother Mason is a book smart genius.
Grayson is caught in the middle, never quite good enough, and now that their parents are separated and
Dad isn't around anymore, Grayson feels like he's all alone.
All that changes when Grayson inherits a silvery key with copper bands. He becomes the Frost-Keeper, gaining wintery superpowers and a world of epic responsibility.
Grayson must protect the City of Chicago from fiery extra-dimensional monsters
called Sulfurians. Disguised as humans, the Sulfurians use mesmerizing flames to control the Slynt Hotel, where Grayson's family works.
With the help of Mason and Lucy Slynt, who's determined to save her industrialist father, Grayson needs to master his powers and uncover the Sulfurians' plans.
Will the trio discover their plot, break the hypnotic spell, and save the city
from the return of the Great Chicago Fire before it's too late?
