New York, NY (PRWEB) October 04, 2011
Centuries ago, an old wizard surveyed rubble that was once a thriving village, filled with the bustle of commerce and laughing children. Conflict brought the citizenry and buildings to a violent end, and the wizard curses that unfortunate result, imparting the last dregs of his magic to a dagger in this new imaginative novel. The wizard hopes someone with brains and courage will find the dagger deep within the earth and save the village from ruin. Flash forward hundreds of years later, and Professor Fielding Atlas has organized a quest for the Summoning Dagger of Mercastus. He’s joined by two boys, whose skill and teamwork help them win a contest to join the renowned explorer – their first adventure together.
Professor Atlas and the Summoning Dagger follows the journey of the professor and the seventh-graders, beginning at the presumed site of a medieval castle in England. The long-lost Summoning Dagger has been missing for generations, kept alive through an often-repeated legend. Professor Atlas and the boys soon gain unwelcome company while pursuing the dagger’s hiding place. Their quest exposes them to unexpected locations and dangerous situations, and they must use their wit and wiles to foil an evil plot and escape with their lives.
Author Paul Maguire worked at the New York Stock Exchange for more than two decades before deciding to pursue writing, a lifelong dream. Professor Atlas and the Summoning Dagger is Maguire’s first book, one in a planned series of adventures featuring Professor Atlas, Tyler and Brandon.
