Voyagers Series Giveaway

FTC Disclosure: samples and prizes provided by Random House Children’s Books

Thanks to Random House Children's Books for sending us the first two books in the new multi-platform middle grade series, The Voyagers! I first became a fan of multi-platform when The 39 Clues series hit the shelves in 2008. Along the same lines, a group of authors is collaborating on this new series. Read on for more info and a giveaway (US addresses only, ends 11/15/2015).

ABOUT THE SERIES

Part sci-fi, part eco-mystery, all action-adventure.

As the young heroes in VOYAGERS journey into outer space to save planet Earth, readers are invited to become part of the story by joining the crew through the multi-platform VOYAGERS HQ. The HQ extends the adventure beyond the page, unlocking games and activities on their devices.

Each book has clues and codes that lead to world extensions to be explored, played, and shared. Your online profile tracks your progress through the VOYAGERS universe, and gives you rewards, ranking and virtually currency for each product code redeemed.

Readers become part of the VOYAGERS world, which extends beyond the books to a digital interactive experience, and downloadable pay-for-play mobile apps games.

Readers can create their own custom VOYAGERS character, follow the team and experience this space adventure through the eyes of their own virtual droid.
