Quantum League Book 1: Spell Robbers

quantum_league

>>> 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

Synopsis:

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.

An totally awesome fan-made book trailer:

    Is Sasha and Ben going to be a couple? Wait nevermined… She’s like 16 and Ben’s like 12. Anyways, this is an awesome book! My friend thought that this was going to be a book about people with magical powers. Instead, when he read it, he lovd the plot and the characters so much, he promised to himself to never judge a book by its cover. You are an amazing author!

    I haven’t read Quantum League, but I love the other books by Matthew K.! Clockwork Three is my all-time favorite, and I read that book any chance I get! Clockwork Three is so well organized, and it’s so well described; I love it. I also read Icefall, and I love that book! I really want to read Quantum League. I bet it will be just as good as all the books Matthew has created so far.

    Hi Matthew!
    I think that The Quantum League Spell Robbers is a great book and I would really like to learn more about molecules and atoms. I have a question, does Ben rejoin the Quantum League in the second book? I just finished the book and it only took two days because I stayed up to 10:15 reading it. I can’t wait until the second book! When you get the chance could you please reply. I’d appreciate it. Thanks. NM

    I love your books!~ They’re so magical and interesting. I like the books because the book sucks my mind like I’m actually Ben. I also like the books because I like magic and the book talks about using your imagination and doing all sorts of unbelievable things to blow the reader’s mind. This book has educated my students on promotions and new kinds of projects. It also had made my students read higher levels and I’m really proud of them. Thank you for making this wonderful and educating book. My students love it and I can’t wait until more comes out of you, Matthew. You are an imaginable wonder I have in my own mind.

    Thank you for writing such an “epic” book as my son would say. My eldest son (10) read it and insisted the rest of us read it too. We just finished reading it last night, and can’t wait to start book number two. January can’t get here soon enough. ; )

    Hoping it becomes a movie too! I know the movies are never as good as the books, but this would be a fun one to watch. : )

    Thanks for writing a book that appeals so perfectly to my three boys!

    I just finished reading the bok “Quantum League Book 1: Spell Robbers”, and I am just speechless! I loved the drama, action, detail, suspense, major plot twists, and science of the book. Matthew also, may or may not have dropped subtle hints about classes 4 and 5 actuations. Being finished with the book, I now have the feeling of which is equivalent to waiting for the next episode in a series. I hope you all are excited as I am for the next instalment of Quantum League.
