Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for middle grade books and, in particular, middle grade fantasy. So it should surprise no one that I’ve been looking forward to checking out Zack Loran Clark and Nick Eliopoulos’s brand new (and very first) book, The Adventurers Guild. Nor should it come as a surprised that we jumped at the chance to do a giveaway for the book with our partners at Disney-Hyperion!
Our review copy is still in the mail but the official synopsis (which we’ve included below) is very promising. It rings to mind a number of other middle grade fantasy series that I’ve previously read and enjoyed which is always a good thing. The Adventurers Guild promises a daring new world besieged by monsters, a team of capable (if mismatched) young people, and a devious conspiracy.
So, really, what’s not to like?
Young readers who enjoy adventure, magic, friendship, and may just find a new favorite in The Adventurers Guild!
While our review is still forthcoming, the book is out now if you want to check it out for yourself. Or you can enter the giveaway we’re hosting in partnership with Disney-Hyperion to promote the book’s release.

About the Book
Few ever asked to join the Adventurers Guild. . . . Their members often died young.
In one of the last cities standing after the world fell to monsters, best friends Zed Kagari and Brock Dunderfel have high hopes for the future. Zed desperately wishes to join the ranks of the Mages Guild, where his status as Freestone’s only half elf might finally be an asset. Brock, the roguishly handsome son of merchants, is confident he’ll be welcomed into the ranks of the Merchants Guild.
But just as it seems the boys’ dreams have come true, their lives take a startling turn . . . and they find themselves members of the perilous Adventurers Guild.
Led by the fearsome Alabasel Frond, the guild acts as the last line of defense against the Dangers—hungry, unnatural beasts from otherworldly planes. And when the boys uncover a conspiracy that threatens all of Freestone, Zed, Brock, and their new allies—Liza, a fierce noble, and Jett, a brave dwarf—must prove their worth once and for all.
This start of a thrilling new series is sure to be a hit with readers who like their fantasies clever and action-packed, with tons of humor and heart.
