What happens when you take an almost-famous D&D dungeon master with a history of headlining major music festivals and breathing fire in the circus and send him to a mountain in China to sit alone with his own thoughts? A new epic solarpunk fantasy novel, somewhere between a ‘Chinese Rock ‘N Roll Harry Potter’ and a ‘Darker Alice in Wonderland.’
Finding time can be difficult in today’s hypermodern world. Making time, however, can be magick.
In 2038, in the SOLARPUNK futuristic city of Chongqing, a dangerous story gets told that threatens our entire multiverse. The world’s spiciest ice cream, a trip to Chongqing’s rural countryside, & a strange collection of curious belongings begin this unforgettable tale that mixes Solar Punk science fiction and high fantasy for a thrilling modern fairytale about a boy who risks his soul to chase a 9-tail fox into the dreamlands for the adventure of a lifetime and the chance to save his family.
“Amos the Amazing is different from the stories I have seen before. It makes me feel the unique charm of a new narrative story that blends Eastern and Western cultures in a mysterious world of whimsy full of wild imagination and unforgettable characters, and I believe that children will love it.” – 停云 Xiao Hua Hua, Senior MG/YA Editor, Chongqing Publishing Group, Publisher of Massive Sci-Fi Bestseller “The Three-Body Problem”
“In this coming-of-age story, Amos grows to think of others more as he runs a race to save his soul and his grandfather’s life. While this book falls into the YA (Young Adult) category, I think it carries appeal for readers of all ages who enjoy the magic of childlike wonder. Amos the Amazing is highly imaginative and action-packed with well-choreographed fight scenes… which Jorah Kai accomplishes with finesse!

That’s kind of this book’s magic…” – @Donasbooks
