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:

    • Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I liked the first book ALOT and I am really excited about book 2. Will Ben ever get his mom back? And will Sasha ever find her parents or will Ben find out about her detachment?

    I have got a homework about you and I would like to make you a few questions that do not appear in your biography:
    What day were you born?
    What are the names of your parents?
    What is your full name?

    Ok Matthew you are one of the greatest authors ever. This book is one of the best books I’ve ever read…It took me 3 days and 2 hours to finish reading this book and every second of this book i enjoyed. I was devastated when i saw that i only had 2 pages left to read. and recently I’ve been looking for the second part to the book and couldn’t quite find it but after reading the comments above I’ve noticed that you said you haven’t created it yet so I’m looking forward to seeing what it will be like. Keep it up. I’ll say it again your an Amazing Author πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the first book, my son is just captivated by the book and has picked up this interest in science, he joined the STEM group at the middle-school and when I took him to watch the movie Interstellar recently, he kept asking for the sequel to Quantum League.

      I planned it out as a trilogy. The second book I’ve written is perhaps a bit darker, and uncovers more of the central mystery. I’m glad you enjoyed the first one!
