The Long Awaited Sequel
Seven year ago this month I released Amber and the Hidden City, an adventure about a twelve year old Atlanta girl that discovers she's inherited special abilities from her grandmother. I wrote Amber in response to requests from parents and the urging of my then teacher wife for books that that their younger children could read. Amber turned out to be one of my more successful books, and the inspiring cover art by James Eugene has gone viral.
Since finishing the Enchanted City I've contemplated writing a sequel, and after seven years I finally did. That sequel is Amber and the Enchanted Sword. What's it about? Here's the blurb:
Clifton Academy is everything Amber thought it would be... and worse. In addition to trying to fit in at a new school, she struggles to master her newfound talents. One day she is contacted by Grandma Alake and is told she must once again defend Marai from the sorcerer
Bagule and his companion, Nieleni. The nefarious duo is in search of Sonni Ali’s sword, a talisman so powerful possessing could mean the end of the ancient and secret
city. Can Amber and her friends find the sword before Bagule and save Marai once more?
