Escape from Fear Island

This book is fun.

Serious fun, and it is a game play book.

You work for world-renowned quantum physicist, Dr. Adrian Peters. He specializes in interdimensional portal technology that would theoretically allow a person to travel to multiple realities. One evening you get a distressing phone call from Dr. Peters, who urges you to get to the lab urgently, and when you get there, you see that he finally succeeded in opening a rift to a parallel dimension. There’s a note on the floor that reads: “Come find me! Hurry!”, so you take a deep breath and step through the portal.

Part story, part game, you are the hero in this adventure!

As you explore Fear Island, you will decide which routes to follow, which puzzles to solve, and which enemies to face. But beware! Time is of the essence, for when it runs out, the portal would collapse, and your adventure would end there.

This one is perfect for teens, and parents and everyone else. Sit back after a refreshing swim and play.

Tommy and the Order of Cosmic Champions

Sometimes our greatest moments of enlightenment come from our worst mistakes.
When life supplies eleven-year-old Tommy Grant with some unfavorable circumstances intruding on his otherwise tranquil life in rural 1980’s Ohio, he retreats into the spell-binding Order of Cosmic Champions. When he discovers that the largely successful animated program and toy line is holding a nationwide ”Create-A-Character” contest where applicants submit their action figure designs, Tommy knows he has to enter as surely as he knows his own name.
But when Tommy’s character design fails to win the contest, he finds his world crumbling from all sides. And there is only one way he knows to fix it.
What follows is a whirlwind coming-of-age adventure of righting wrongs, overcoming perilous obstacles, confronting our inner demons, and challenging the limits of reality. In this waxing nostalgic and imaginative fantasy, readers will discover what excitement lies waiting when you take risks and conquer your fears. Only one question remains: In the final hour when you heed the call, the courage to give your all, will you stand or fall?

This is a great read for your teens to enjoy by the pool.

Meet Winter Young – International pop sensation, with a voice like velvet and looks that could kill. His star power has smashed records, selling out stadiums from LA to London. His rabid fans would move heaven and earth for even a glimpse of him – just imagine what they’d do to become his latest fling.

Meet Sydney Cossette – Part of an elite covert ops group, Sydney joined their ranks as their youngest spy with plans to become the best agent they’ve ever had. An ice queen with moves as dangerous as her comebacks, Sydney picks up languages just as quickly as she breaks hearts. She’s fiery, no-nonsense, and has zero time for romance – especially with a shameless flirt more used to serving sass than taking orders.
