Book Review and Fantastic Giveaway: The Brimstone Key, by Derek Benz and J.S. Lewis (4 Winners!)

Imagine getting together with your best friend from childhood and writing bestselling books! That’s what happened with Derek Benz and J.S. Lewis. As boys, they dreamed of writing adventure stories like the Star Wars movies they were crazy about, and they actually fulfilled their fantasies when they created a middle grade adventure series called the Grey Griffins. In the following video, the authors share how they embarked on this exciting project together:



[Email subscribers, please click on the title of this post to access the video online.]

Their newest novel, The Brimstone Key, dazzles readers with another magical tale of the Grey Griffins, the stars of three previous books by Benz and Lewis. The Grey Griffins are four ordinary kids from Minnesota who become allies of the legendary Templar Knights. In The Brimstone Key, they must battle against the evil Clockwork King and his army of clockwork war machines. It’s Book 1 of a whole new series of adventures for the Grey Griffins called The Clockwork Chronicles.

If your kids love adventure stories with lots of magic and action, they’ll love The Brimstone Key!
