Quantum League Book 1: Spell Robbers

quantum_league

>>> Update:Β I 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:

    Where is the Quantum League Book 2 at I’ve legit been waiting since I was in 4th grade Im nearing 7th now :/ though I due understand the lengthily processes of publishing a book I can’t believe how long it has been.. Your a great author Kirby keep up the great work who knows maybe Ill be the author to continue the Quantum legacy when I’m older πŸ˜‰ anyways I best be going now but I really hope you do see this comment; one of hundreds lost in the mass of writing. Seriously I said “bye” like 2 sentences ago I can go much to far into detail sometimes, danger your making yourself look like a fool… Adios and best of wishing to you and the Quantum Recruits…. – Signed Revilo D.
    p.s. what if u added Revilo as a character with new quantum abilities? πŸ™‚
    p.p.s. legit I need to chill with all this fan-writing

    • I’ve been waiting since I was in 5th grade, now I’m close to Highschool. I know exactly how you feel. I actually thought he forgot that on the book he wrote, “Quantum League spell robbers *BOOK ONE*.” So I was thinking that he wasn’t gonna make another one then I came here just today and he reassured me that he is. I can’t wait!!!

    I just finished book 1 of The Quantum League and I really liked it like really really liked it. It was awesome. I just want to read book 2. I wonder when it will come out. Keep up the good work. I love your books. For a 30 minutes I searched up about actuation and stuff but its really not true. I also searched up about a movie for this book but sadly there isn’t. A movie for this book would be really GOOD! I just can’t wait to see if Ben finds a way to reattach him self and if he doesn’t what will he do. At the end I was surprised to read that he made a class 3 actuation. It really hyped me up. Hopefully the book comes out soon. I really want to read what happens next. Thank You for making this book Matthew J Kirby. I really love it.

    Hi, everyone!

    I’m sorry I don’t have time to respond to every comment individually. I’m also sorry to say that I don’t have any news on a release date for Quantum League 2, HOWEVER, my agent has requested what we in the publishing business call a “rights reversion,” which basically means that the publisher has run out of time to do something with the manuscript, so I get it back. That means I can do something with it, myself. I’m not sure yet what that will look like. It’s been years since I wrote Quantum League 2 (it was mostly finished before the 1st Quantum League book even came out) so I’ll have to go back and take a look at it to see if I want to change anything after all this time. I’m sorry for those of you who’ve been waiting for so long. I really didn’t intend to leave you hanging that way. I planned this as a trilogy, but things didn’t happen the way I expected them to. Hopefully I’ll have another update soon.

    Matt

    I got Quantum League online, it was so compelling I literally read it in four hours, can’t wait for the next one and I have read all of the updates so I do understand it might be a wait especially if you are now planning on changing it yourself.
