from Grady P Brown!

Patrick Donovan and his friends live average teenage lives. For them, life in Southern California is dull, ordinary, and without adventure. But that won't last for long. They have no way of knowing that their lives will soon take an exciting turn, and that their choices will determine the world's course. Suddenly, in one night, their lives as they know them will inexplicably change forever as a mysterious girl exposes them to an unknown force. Endowed with unimaginable power, Patrick and his companions must evade the clutches of a secret society bent on turning them into living weapons while they also wrestle their inner demons. As they are thrown into this new reality, they adopt a new name – The Young Guardians. Now they must face the sinister realities of the world and bring peace and justice to the city of Los Angeles. With the mysterious power of darkness stalking them from the shadows, Patrick and his friends must struggle to survive in a world that has become plagued with the neverending crime waves that have terrorized Los Angeles for years. However, as The Young Guardians protect the City of Angels, a mysterious enemy lurks among the shadows, an enemy that is purely evil, unimaginably powerful, and seeks to destroy Patrick and his friends. With only The Young Guardians standing between the enemy and the downfall of the world, they must face a terrifying question: Will they survive the upcoming climactic battle and fulfill their quest for world serenity, or will they fail to triumph and watch the world turn to darkness? The powers of light and darkness collide in this tale of destiny, vengeance, and redemption.

Tell us about The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell.

This book revolves around a group of teenagers who acquire superhuman powers after a chance encounter with the last high elf. Now they don the mantle of superheroes while being hunted by a vengeful cyborg. In addition to the classical superhero elements, this book will present the reader with human aspects such as revenge, redemption, and coming of age.

What initially inspired you to write The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell?

My best friends and I dreamed of being superheroes when we were in elementary school, but for obvious reasons we could not make that dream a reality. Therefore, I decided to take matters into my own hands by manifesting that dream into a book for the world to see. I interviewed my friends and what powers they would want to have if they were superheroes and I incorporated that into my book.

Tell us little about the characters in The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell.

Patrick Donovan is the unofficial leader of the group and he has a lot of demons that he struggles with to this day. Tinisha Dolaira is the last high elf and the source of the Young Guardians’ powers. Joshua Rauje is the hothead of the team and can be a reckless loose cannon. Derek Marvin is the brains of the outfit, but his intelligence has made him somewhat demeaning and cynical. Gregory Kennedy is the heart and soul of the group because when the group seems to fall apart he was there to bring them together. Cyber Shadow is a cyborg supervillain who holds a powerful grudge against the Young Guardians and seeks to kill them all.

What was the hardest part of writing this book?

The hardest part of writing the book would have to be envisioning the potential hardships of being a cyborg, which I tried to depict while writing Cyber Shadow’s point of view.

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?

My favorite part to write would have to be the Young Guardians’ battle against Cyber Shadow because it was full of action, emotion, and overcoming seemingly impossible odds.

What are your future project(s)?

I am currently writing a fantasy book that revolves around a young man who goes on a quest to conquer an entire empire.

Is there anything else you would like to tell the readers about this book/series?

In addition to basing characters on my friends, I also based some of the characters on people I know such as my family and godfather. Cyber Shadow, in particular, is based on all of the bullies who tormented me throughout middle and high school. This is my way of getting back at them with a vengeance.
