 Book Description

Shelby Pardow never imagined killing someone. That's about to change.

While hiding from her troubled father in the local library, Shelby stares at a flashing instant message on her computer: YOU ARE NEEDED. She discovers a portal that opens and teleports her to the planet Azimuth, where soldiers await. Here, she is not a child but a warrior, Kin to one of the six Aulic Assembly members imprisoned by Malefic Cacoethes, the daunting leader of the Nightlanders.

Malefic, the evil spawn of the demon Biskara, razes towns and cities in his quest to rule Azimuth, and yearns to turn his forces against Earth. Yet every time Biskara gets close to achieving his malevolent goals, the Assembly uses the Silver Sphere, a sophisticated armillary device, to thwart him.

With the Assembly deposed, Biskara directing Malefic's conquests, and the Silver Sphere out of reach, Shelby is thrust into an unforgettable quest with her fellow Kin. She must learn to kill and lead an army into battle, or Azimuth—and Earth—will fall.


This is one of the most awesome
book trailers I've ever seen! Very well done!





My Review
You will find such a fascinating new world as you start reading The Silver Sphere. This YA Fantasy has an exciting plot, interesting characters, strange creatures, and a unique setting. Six teens (called The Kin) are brought to this world through a portal because they have been told that, THEY ARE NEEDED! They find out that they are needed to defend the planet Azimuth against the demon Biskara; Satan in our world. The teens(Kin) have psychic links to members of the Aulic Assembly on Azimuth, a governing council who have the ability to monitor the coordinates of the evil being Biskara. The council members have been kidnapped. They  also are on a quest to find the Silver Sphere, an ancient object needed to win the battle against Malefic Cacoethes, the daunting leader of the Nightlanders.

I liked the development of the six teens as they become stronger and more confident in their new powers. The first half of the book is dedicated to this process, but the last half is all action. We are left with a huge cliffhanger, which I'm finding most books in series tend to have these days. I don't mind that at all if the next book is just as good as the first. YA fantasy fans, teens and adults, will like reading The Silver Sphere.

Meet Author Michael Dadich

I’ve been writing since first setting pencil to steno pad at age 8. A year later, I began developing the world of my current series-in-progress, and even created its title, The Silver Sphere. Now, with the support of years of experience, those early maps and back stories have progressed into what I hope is a fresh and entertaining take on the classic young adult fantasy adventure.
Despite my frequent escapes into parallel worlds, I root myself firmly in my very real family and community. When not pacing the yard maniacally after every few pages of writing, I spend as much time as possible hanging out with my studly 9-year-old son, and my inspirational wife Jenna. I also coach several local youth sports teams in Beverly Hills, and alternate between yelling at my two crazy Corgis and hiking with my trained German Shepherd.
For more, join me in my favorite fantasy worlds, from Lord of the Rings to the creations of C.S. Lewis, Anne McCaffrey and Terry Brooks. Even more importantly, stop by and say hello on my Facebook page at AuthorMichaelDadich, tweet me at@MichaelDadich, and stalk my website at http://www.thesilversphere.org.
