This event is free and open to the public. Be sure to purchase a copy of THE FOUR GUARDIANS from us to earn a place in the signing line!

More about The Four Guardians:
When Prince Leo’s conniving cousin seizes control of Singara, Leo flees his home, his life, and his throne, hoping to find his long-lost mother. Trapped among the enemy Leo discovers they know a lot more about him than he knows about himself, including a destiny far greater—and far more dangerous—than he ever imagined.

Can Leo harness his power, stop a war, and prevent a monstrous demon from destroying the world? In this thrilling second book in the Pride Wars series, Leo’s identity as a Spinner, once thought to be his greatest curse, might become his greatest weapon.

Mystery, magic, and action-packed adventure meet in this high-stakes sequel to The Spinner Prince.
