by David H. Scott (12 years old)

ISBN: 150770237X

Steve was just another ordinary guy living in an ordinary village, when the happiest villager he’d ever met sent him on a quest to save the world. Clueless about his goals, and manipulated by everyone he meets, is Steve destined to be a hero, or is he just a pawn in someone else’s game?

This middle-grade, fantasy adventure novel will be sure to engage reluctant readers, and please gamers and adventure lovers alike.

The Last Pages
by Lara Whatley

Published works: The Last Pages (Chapters in Time) (Vol. 1)

When Kale meets Leon, who insists that she must join him for her safety or die, she embarks on a journey that changes her life forever.

Kale led a simple life with her mother in a small 18th century town. That changed when a runaway, Leon, forced her into joining him. Soldiers want Leon for treason. Now they want Kale too. She thinks it’s because she is with Leon, but he knows better.

Leon and Kale journey across untamed lands in the quest to prove he is innocent. There they find out the truth about their pasts; a truth that should not have seen the light. It is truth, which may send the nearby kingdoms into war. They must try to keep each other alive, stop war from ravaging the land, and undo the mistakes they have made before it is too late.
