Few ever asked to join the Adventurers Guild. . . . Their members often died young.

In one of the last cities standing after the world fell to monsters, best friends Zed Kagari and Brock Dunderfel have high hopes for the future. Zed desperately wishes to join the ranks of the Mages Guild, where his status as Freestone's only half elf might finally be an asset. Brock, the roguishly handsome son of merchants, is confident he'll be welcomed into the ranks of the Merchants Guild.

But just as it seems the boys' dreams have come true, their lives take a startling turn . . . and they find themselves members of the perilous Adventurers Guild.

Led by the fearsome Alabasel Frond, the guild acts as the last line of defense against the Dangers-hungry, unnatural beasts from otherworldly planes. And when the boys uncover a conspiracy that threatens all of Freestone, Zed, Brock, and their new allies-Liza, a fierce noble, and Jett, a brave dwarf-must prove their worth once and for all.

This start of a thrilling new series is sure to be a hit with readers who like their fantasies clever and action-packed, with tons of humor and heart.

    The Adventurers Guild is the most dangerous guild of all guilds- they guard outside the wall (There is a wall guarding the city) and fight monsters. Many adventurers die, as well. Brock, Zed, and 2 other friends get chosen to be in the guild- right when a disaster strikes. The wall has focus shards to keep monsters away, and the focus shards are expiring. They need to find the focus spell before monsters destroy the city. Will one group of friends with normal clothes and terrified looks in their face be able to save the day? Overall this is a really fun adventure book that I couldn't put down after I started reading it.

      I loved this book. My brother showed it to me, and now it is one of my favorites books. It is about a half-elf blood boy named Zed, a Merchant boy named Brock, a dwarf named Jett, and a pair of noble twins named Liza and Micah who become part of the Adventurers Guild whether they like it or not.

        I really like this book, though it is kind of confusing up until the last 3 chapters, so DO NOT SKIM! I recommend it for 10-16 year olds, because it is a sort of typical fairy tale story.
