Freebie Friday--Tales of Myrick the Magnificent

Today's Freebie Friday is a light middle grade fantasy, The Tales of Myrick the Magnificent by Berin Stephens---for all those kids home for the summer who say they don't have anything to do. (I know I'm going to download it for my son.)

Here is the back copy:

Are you sure you want to be an adventurer?

Believe me, there are plenty of dragons, moronic guards, golems, evil sorcerers, zombies, blood-thirsty plants, undead necromancers, bandits, and troglyns out there who do NOT have your health and happiness in mind. If it weren't for my friends—the squirrel-like Nut-boy, the beautiful yet brawny Princess Frederica, and the ever-loyal but brainless Nonac the barbarian—I wouldn't be alive today to warn you about the many dangers out there. Of course, possessing magic running socks helps a lot, too, even though they seem to get me into trouble as fast as they get me out.

So, I've compiled a few of my life experiences in an effort to convince you, my good friends, to just stay home, lock your doors, and keep a loaded crossbow handy. Oh, and have a barbarian around in case something needs to be thumped senseless.

Looks cute, and I am positive I've never heard of "magical running socks." =)
