Parragon acquired the first book in the ‘Zodiac Legacy’ trilogy, ‘The Zodiac Legacy: Convergence’, from Disney Publishing who released the book in the US last year.

The trilogy is based on the Chinese zodiac system and follows Steven, a Chinese-American teenager who along with a few of this friends, Steven gains magical powers and is drawn into a global conspiracy surrounding mystical pools of energy.


Lee said: “It’s a book that I think children would love, but I think a guy 50, 60, 80, 100 years old would love – anybody who likes a great adventure story about things that are bigger and more imaginative than life itself.”

The book is out now and also features text by Stuart Moore and illustrations by Andie Tong.
