A few months ago, the Middle Grade Mafia introduced you to Legends of Lost Causes by Brad McLelland and Louis Sylvester. Today we are happy to be a part of the cover reveal for their sequel – The Fang of Bonfire Crossing. The book is hitting the shelves on February 19, 2019.
About the Book
The Brotherband Chronicles meets the Wild West in this rip-roaring middle-grade adventure series filled with dark magic, scrappy heroes, and diabolical villains.
Keech Blackwood and his band of fellow orphans demand justice for their fallen families. But the road to retribution is a long and hard-fought journey.
After defeating Bad Whiskey Nelson, the man who burned Keech’s home to the ground, the Lost Causes have a new mission: find Bonfire Crossing, the mysterious land that holds clues to the whereabouts of the all-powerful Char Stone. Along the way they’ll have to fend off a shapeshifting beast, a swarm of river monsters, and a fearsome desperado named Big Ben Loving who conjures tornadoes out of thin air. It’s an epic standoff between the Lost Causes and the outlaw Reverend Rose, a powerful sorcerer who would be unstoppable with the Stone in his possession.
With the world―and vengeance―hanging in the balance, the Lost Causes are ready for battle.
