Tuber Thursdays (2) - October 1st

Today I'm going to showcase the trailer of a book I will be reviewing within the next month or so. This author contacted me to review his novel, and I couldn't pass it up after reading the following description. The trailer makes me want to read it even more!

Defenders of the Scroll by Shiraz

A teenage boy.A dark wizard.A mystic scroll. And the fate of a world hangs in the balance. . . When Alex "the Axeman" Logan is pulled from his world to help young princess Dara save her kingdom from the Shadow Lord, he thinks there has been a mistake. He's a teen guitar player close to failing 11th grade, not some defender of the realm. All he has are some school books, his wits, and his love of fantasy movies. Overnight his life is history. Alex must confront the Shadow Lord and his minions when he is thrust into a land that has changed from a magical paradise to a barren, hopeless, helpless realm invaded by a dark army. But Alex is not alone. He has the help of Dara, a magic scroll, and a band of unlikely companions drawn from his own history books: a hardened Roman Legionnaire, a swift Japanese Samurai, a mighty African Warrior, a fiery Amazon Archer, and a spirited Shaolin Monk. Can Alex become more than he believes and lead his small band of Defenders to the Hall of Shadows, the birthplace of the Shadow Lord? The fate of the realm and everyone in it rests on him.

This is an awesome book. I read it a little while and can say it's as good, if not better than the description.

Love this feature btw :)

Thanks Bella! I heard it was pretty good, which is making me more anxious to read it :) I'm glad you like the new feature. If you have any book trailers you think should be showcased, be sure to let me know! I'll even include your name as the person that recommended it :)
