Quantum League Book 1: Spell Robbers


>>> UpdateI get a LOT of email and blog comments asking when the second book in the series will be out. I wish I had a definitive answer. I can tell you I’ve written the second book, and my publisher has it, but it’s up to them when it comes out. The best thing to do is to tell your local bookseller you’re ready for it and you want it. <<<

A “high-energy spy story.” – Kirkus

“Kirby infuses this action-packed spy thriller with layers of moral ambiguity… This first book in the Quantum League series provides satisfying partial closure, while intriguing storylines to be developed will leave readers eager for the next installment.” – Publishers Weekly


After Ben Warner is recruited to join a “science camp” led by the eccentric quantum physicist Dr. Madeleine Hughes, he quickly realizes it’s no regular science camp. Along with his new friend, Peter, Ben discovers the secret, powerful art of Actuation–the ability to change reality by simply imagining it differently.

When a mysterious group of men invade Dr. Hughes’s laboratory, abducting her and stealing her precious equipment, Ben and Peter are suddenly caught up in a turf war between dangerous actuators desperate for Dr. Hughes’s innovative technology. And as Ben and Peter are pulled into a perilous, hidden world full of impossibilities now made possible, will their combined powers be enough to save Dr. Hughes and vanquish their enemies before it’s too late?

From Edgar Award-winning author Matthew J. Kirby comes a fast-paced, boldly imagined tale of friendship, deadly adventure, and the infinite power of imagination.

    I’ve been waiting for book 2 for 6 years. He finished book 2 like 4-5 years ago and it’s still not here.

  7. Marvelous, what a weblog it is! This website presents helpful facts to us, keep it up.

  8. I first read this book years ago and absolutely loved it and I’ve read it at least twice more since! I would really appreciate it if we could just get a PDF or something if the publisher is not going to get it out!

    my bad for commenting twice

  15. I have discovered they are significantly more accommodating and the specialized help individuals will really realize what you are discussing, and afterward they will connect you with the sales reps to handle your request.

    How long has your publisher had book 2 now? I first read book 1 about 5-6 years ago and since then has re-checked it out to reread it about 10 times, and I’m really curious about book 2, since book 1 ended on such a cliffhanger with Ben.

  18. Hi, I have read this book in 4th grade and still have my original copy of it, and I fell in love with it and sparked my curiosity into a whole new world of genre’s and have been waiting 7 long years for the new book and am sad to see nothing yet ):

    My classes have been reading this book for the past 5 years. I will have my students bombard scholastic with emails asking them to release the sequel. Scholastic gave me this email. slpservice@scholastic.com.

    I read book one for the first time years ago and have read it as least twice more since. I know it wouldn’t be ideal but if you publisher isn’t going to give us the book is there a way you could send a pdf or something in your newsletter?

    I’m so sad today. I have been doing this book in my school for many years now and my students love it. Today I received an email saying that the book isn’t available anymore, so I won’t be able to do Quantum League in class. I don’t understand how an amazing book like this goes out of print.
