Polybius - The Urban Legend, will immerse boys and girls alike in the exciting world of International Espionage. The book includes Augmented Reality (AR) features which bring the book to life with intelligence updates and digital games that can be played on smart phones/ tablets.

Spy Quest is more than just a book - it's an entire immersive adventure game that you can play at hotels and resorts around the world - from America and Mexico to the United Kingdom. The book contains a free game voucher which can be redeemed at participates hotels and resorts.

Prologue - In the dark amusement arcades of the 1980s, a new game is discreetly appearing - Polybius. It's addictive fun... but the machine mysteriously disappears as swiftly as it arrived. So too does the one kid who claimed the highest ever score... never to be heard from again... Over thirty years later, computer games have moved on - but the players are as keen as ever. SAM RAYNER is one such boy. His dreams of being a professional gamer, a virtual athlete on a million dollar contract -- dreams that are scoffed at by his twin sister, REBECCA. She secretly enjoys playing games, but would never openly admit that to her "geeky" brother -- that is until Sam wins an online competition, giving the entire family a free holiday at a luxury hotel. But it's not just a chance for his family to take a pampered break, it's a special games tournament and a chance for Sam to chase his dream. Or that's what he thinks - until he discovers a game has been mysteriously downloaded to his mobile phone. A game called Polybius - a name from the darkest reaches of urban legends.

Coming Soon... The Cursed Diamond.
