Book Video Friday!

For Jimmy Stone, life in "Boredsylvania" has been pretty tough. His mom's died, his dad's completely checked out, and he spends his days running from the Coogan Boys, the local bullies. It isn't long, however, before "Boredsylvania" gets a lot more exciting. With his new friend, David and his dog, Trex, by his side, Jimmy discovers that the woods beyond his backyard hold the key to a world he could never even imagine. Soon, he ends up in Ghost Town, where he’s greeted by his ghost guide, Gasp, and receives an ominous prophecy.

“Seven things you must find.
One thing for each day.
Seven things you must find.
Or else they all will pay!

Suddenly Ghost Town becomes as scary as it sounds, and Jimmy Stone realizes that he's in way over his head.

A warrior with a secret. A rogue band of cut throats seeking gold before glory. And a monster of legend.

A morning that no one wanted. Battle rusty from the war infirmaries, a company of recently healed Sujins, Sunja's heavy infantry, are called to duty and ordered to march north through a war torn country. They know not why they travel, only that they must and guard a mysterious koch. They are whipped by the murderous Rusk the Two Knife and his Koor officers. They are lead by the enigmatic Bloor, the only cavalier to survive the Field of Skulls.

Together, they will march into the unknown, and arrive at the teeth of hell.

And only one man will possess the skills necessary to bring the survivors back.
