Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse
Release on: September 9, 2009Bran Hambric was found locked in a bank vault at six years old, with no memory of his past. For years, he has lived with one of the bankers, wondering why he was left behind -- until one night, when he is fourteen, he is suddenly confronted by a maddened creature, speaking of Bran’s true past and trying to kidnap him.
Bran finds that he is at the center of a plot which started years before he was even born: the plot of a deadly curse his mother created…and one that her former masters are hunting for him to complete.
Haunted by the spirit of his mother’s master and living in a city where magic is illegal, Bran must undo the crimes of his past...before it is too late.
I heard about Kaleb through Maureen Johnson and was immediately excited for this book. For one thing, there are gnomes. Also, Kaleb is still in college and he has a whole series of books! That really inspired me. Can’t wait to get a copy of this one!
Also, check out the trailer for this one. I don’t really watch book trailers, but I love this one. And the music in the background? Kaleb composed it!
