The Adventurers Guild by Zack Loran Clark and Nick Eliopulos
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.

This book left me breathless
It has been SO long since a middle grade fantasy novel has done that for me.
It was SO good. I can’t even words right now. Usually, my fangirling is saved for YA or adult books, but The Adventurers Guild is definitely worth a girly squeal or two.
It’s told in the third person, split between Zed and Brock. Both boys are young and hoping to be selected by prestigious guilds during the guildculling ceremony in their city. The selection will determine their rank, job, and title for the rest of their lives.
In a surprising twist of fate, both boys end up in the Adventurers Guild, which is charged with protecting their city from magical monsters that live outside the city walls. While an important guild, it’s misunderstood and feared by most people.
There is so much action in the book. The characters roped me in and the suspense kept me turning pages as fast as I could.
It’s a little bit like Divergent with the city separated into guilds, each with a different job to perform. It also reminded me of Harry Potter with the magic, a young mage, and a group of tight-knit friends battling magical creatures and solving a mystery the adults can’t.
If I had to take a guess as to which new book series is going to be on every kid’s wish-list, this is it.
It’s well written, exciting, and full of surprises. Kids and their parents are going to love this book. My daughter started reading it after I finished and she’s just as hooked as I was.
