by debut Author Steve Schatz

Published by

Absolute Love Publishing and Steve Schatz today announced the release of Adima Rising, the first book in a three part series about a group of 4 diverse teens in New Mexico, who discover a world of energy behind their daily world. In this world, beings travel the web of light and a battle between Adima, the creators of the web, and Kroledutz, energy suckers is coming to a head. The 4 teens are the only ones who are in the right place at the right time to save both worlds. To do so, they must survive 4 challenges which force them to discover their inner power.

Adima Rising is a new kind of adventure. Steeped in Native American myths of North and South America, it does not evoke European castles or beasties. Instead, regular teens are faced with the long past of America and the current problems of home life.

A diverse group of ethnic, life style and outlook, the 4 learn to work together to overcome obstacles both in the energetic world and, with increasing frequency, in their regular lives.

Aimed at young adult readers, Adima Rising is a satisfying read for all ages.
