Warrior Genius Sneak Peek by Michael Dante DiMartino

Download a FREE sneak peek of WARRIOR GENIUS, the sequel to REBEL GENIUS by Michael Dante Dimartino. It has been years since Geniuses—creatures that channel their owners’ creative energy—were banished from Zizzola. But a new generation of artists and their bird-Geniuses has been training in secret. Led by Giacomo, a young orphan with promising talent, they set out to track down the Sacred Tools that could hold the power to overthrow the ruthless emperor, Nerezza. With paintbrushes flying and artistic force weaponized, the group secured the Compass, but they’ll need all three Tools to take down Nerezza. Traveling to distant Rachana in search of the Straightedge, the young artists are alarmed to find all the warriors’ horse-Geniuses afflicted with a mysterious illness. The source of the plague is an ancient, dark force that no human can conquer, but Giacomo has learned a surprising truth: he isn’t human. He is a Tulpa, a manmade being created with sacred geometry. Using newfound abilities and the help of great friends, Giacomo will have to fight the battle of his life if he wants to save the Geniuses—and the empire.

Blast of the Dragon’s Fury: A Fun Dragon Epic Fantasy Book with Dragons (Andy Smithson 1) by L. R. W. Lee

Praise for Andy Smithson: Blast of the Dragon’s Fury (Book One) “I LOVED it! Totally hooked and want to hear more. When’s the sequel coming out?” – Book Reviewer “As far as Andy Smithson knows, he is a more-or-less ordinary 10-year-old boy, neglected by his overachieving parents and annoyed by his pampered older sister. What he doesn’t know is that he is also the latest in a line of rulers of the land of Oomaldee and the one destined to save that kingdom from a curse put on it 500 years before Andy’s birth. Andy is magically pulled into Oomaldee while washing dishes one evening, and the adventure begins–an adventure that includes fire-breathing dragons, a lisping wizard, flying horses, people-eating giants, and many new and delightful friends. The story has plenty of exciting moments and a great deal of humor, from fart jokes and silly wordplay to more subtle humor that should appeal to adult readers. Delightful characters, exciting moments, and plenty of cool extras.” – SP Reviews “The humor is visible and the book has many clever touches. The characters are believable… in this multi-layered story. A well-thought-through plot and vivid characters and situations.” – Editor, A Woman’s Write “What a wonderful read, it grabbed me from the first lines, and lively writing and dialogue kept me there!” – Author, The Sword of DemelzaThe Andy Smithson allegorical, fantasy adventure series includes:Blast of the Dragon’s Fury, Book OneVenom of the Serpent’s Cunning, Book Two – Now availableDisgrace of the Unicorn’s Honor, Book Three – Coming Fall 2014Yet unnamed books four to seven
