Max McDaniels is a student of mystical and magical combat at the Rowan Academy. The Academy sits within the Demon Kingdom. Laws have been issued to govern the life of the people living in Rowan. In this fourth adventure, the fortress Gravenmuir, where the demons hold court and oversee Rowan’s obedience, has been magically destroyed by the mysterious and powerful sorcerer Elias Bram.
But all is still not well. If Rowan is to keep its new found independence it will have to find a way to take on the Demons. The Academy’s director, Ms. Richter, Max and his warrior friends in The Red Branch, the mysterious Elias Bram and his grandson David, the ogre Bob, a ragtag refugee army and a very puzzling little girl…all of them will have to cooperate. It will take all of them working together to take on the powerful Astaroth.
A mighty battle is brewing and Max isn’t at all sure who to trust.
- The Demons are fighting amongst themselves vying for power…who is the most dangerous enemy?
- Elias and David hold powers Max can’t begin to understand.
- Max’s best friend Cooper is missing in action.
- Legendary assassins have been sent to kill Max – assassins who are magically bound to relentlessly hunt their target.
- Max has been put in charge of a ragtag group of refugees who are to be Rowan’s first line of defense against an advancing Demon army.
- And to make matters even worse…his former girlfriend is not happy with him. Not happy. At. All. Annnnnd she has a good reason not to be. That reason keeps popping into Max’s head. Who can even guess how that might turn out!
Another fast moving adventure with a complex network of people who need to trust each other when trusting is a very difficult thing to do. Loyalty vs Concern for Self, Trust vs Betrayal, Strength vs Weakness…it’s all in there. Looking forward to #5 The Red Winter, Available Fall 2013. Author: Henry H. Neff
