Share Article

Author takes readers back into a magical world where seven teenagers must embrace an extraordinary destiny.

From the author that brought readers The Auslesen Seven: In The Land of the Unicorn comes its exciting sequel, The Auslesen Seven: Over the Seven Mountains. In author Zachary T. M. Schmitz’s second volume of his epic fantasy series, he continues the journey of the seven extraordinary teenagers who must embrace a destiny far greater than they could ever have imagined.

The book opens with the 3000-year-old war finally at an end. King Lewy dealt the final blow and brought peace at the end of the first book. After 3000 years of constant war, the people are happy to be at peace. Or one would think. But conspiracy runs rampant throughout the magical universe and King Lewy must deal with the rising of a new villain bent on throwing him off the throne forever.

Dark times loom in the magical universe’s future. It is for these dark times that Chris was selected as the Dragon gods’ Chosen One. Together with his six friends—best friend James, twin sisters Lauren and Rose-Marie, Jamal, Samantha, and Bo—they must complete the gods’ holy quest by traversing the Land of Seven Mountains, crossing the Never Ending Sea, finding the Cave of the Unkown at the end of the Poison Road, and then somehow getting through it to the land of the Ravons. With the help of the Ravons, they will battle the rising darkness.

In this anticipated second installment of ‘The Auslesen Seven’ series, the Seven grapple with their own deadly urges including prideful actions and lusting desires while they struggle to climb the mythical Land of Seven Mountains. Schmitz deftly mixes magical mythology, political confusion, and satirical humor to create the ultimate world. Readers will be breathless with anticipation as they follow the fast-paced magical adventure that will take them beyond infinite imagination and possibility. But the journey doesn’t end there. Readers can look forward to the thrilling third volume, The Auslesen Seven: At the end of the Poison Road, coming soon.
