Latrobe, Pennsylvania (PressExposure) June 10, 2013 -- Pennsylvania author, Edward Torba is pleased to announce his new novel, Matt Monroe and The Secret Society. This new work mixes fantasy with mystery for young adults and middle grade readers.
Matt Monroe, a fourteen-year-old boy, puts his fears aside as he travels to a same-time dimension to fulfill a prophecy. The saga begins when Matt finds a set of mysterious wooden tablets and an onyx ring. Soon he and his older brother, along with five friends, find themselves transported to the world of Paragon, where they face numerous obstacles. This is an account of deception and betrayal, mixed with courage and the bonds of friendship. Prepare yourself for an exciting adventure with an extraordinary ending.
"Matt and his friends must overcome evil just like the group did in Stephen King's, It, or the young Wizard in Harry Potter. The story also is reminiscent of the Hardy Boys mysteries and the coming-of age movie Goonies with the addition of the supernatural...."- Donna Smith, The US Review of Books
"...Themes of family, love, and good versus evil are highlighted in Matt's quest, while the descriptive narrative is imaginative... Matt Monroe and The Secret Society is an enchanting and engrossing tale of good battling evil in a mystical world, and is suitable for young teenage fans of light fantasy." - Maya Fleischman, Clarion Book Review
"The ending is truly spectacular and for one, was not at all what I was expecting. I would definitely recommend this YA book to others." - Ionia Martin, Top 500 reviewers for Amazon.com
Matt Monroe and The Secret Society is available in both print and ebook format.
