The Wizard Killer by Adam Dreece


This book from Adam Dreece is a short but action packed story.

I really enjoyed discovering this confusing world through the eyes and mind of the unnamed main character, who isn't sure who he is, where he is or why he's there!

The story clipped along at a good pace and pulled me along with it, but left me with a multitude of questions. I want... no... need to know more about this world and its inhabitants.









Synopsis:

A world once at the height of magical technology and social order has collapsed. How and why are the least of the wizard killer’s worries.

Leaning my bloody head against the back of the crashed levitating carriage, I flex my cramped fingers. With a renewed grip on the mana-pistol, I steal a quick breath. The others better wake up fast, otherwise we’re all going to burn.

Enjoy all 20 pulse-pounding episodes, and an all new side to best-selling YA author, Adam Dreece.

Recommended for adults, appropriate for most 12+ .

Note: This is written in an episodic, serialized style.


The Author:

Indie author Adam Dreece created the bestselling Steampunk series The Yellow Hoods — which has become a hit with kids from 9-15 as well as with adult readers. After a solid, 20-year career as a software designer and overcoming a serious illness, he started his company – ADZO Publishing – with his wife in 2014. In short order, he released the first two novels in his acclaimed The Yellow Hoods series — Along Came a Wolf and Breadcrumb Trail – within that first year.

Mixing it up with Steampunk, fantasy, fairytales and legends, The Yellow Hoods series follows Tee, Elly, and Richey – three young friends living in a pre-industrial society on the verge of technological revolution. It’s a fun, fast-paced adventure emphasizing teamwork and family connections as well as empowerment and self-esteem — with a strong, vibrant female protagonist taking the lead in the action. Both books were critically acclaimed best-sellers and were followed swiftly by the third book, All the Kings Men, and a novelette, Snappy and Dashing. In August 2015, the first two novels were selected as finalists for the Independent Author Network’s Book of the Year award in the Young Adult/Teen and Fantasy categories, respectively.

Adam’s fourth Yellow Hoods novel, Beauties and the Beast, was released in October 2015. He currently resides in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with his wife and children. He is an active online mentor at adamdreece.com, and is a busy public speaker, panelist, and author in Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
