Darby Karchut’s middle grade fantasy FINN’S CHOICE (ISBN: 9781633920705; 230 pages; trade paperback) released September 20 from Spencer Hill Press. It is available at Amazon Barnes & Noble , and indie bookstores worldwide. This is the fourth and final book in the Adventures of Finn MacCullen series. School Library Journal called the first book in the series, FINN FINNEGAN, “...a great choice for adventure-loving readers who prefer their battle scenes with a hefty dose of ancient weaponry, ground-fighting skills, and just a touch of magic."
Just when Finn MacCullen thought fate couldn’t kick him any harder after the events of the Festival of the Hunt, it does. Now, he must overcome a series of nearly impossible trials to prove his worth as an apprentice, or lose his place at his master Gideon’s side. However, Finn’s life has as many twists as a Celtic knot, and master and apprentice find themselves in their ancestral homeland of Ireland with only their wits—and a fair bit of the Black Hand’s charm—to protect them from a vengeful Celtic goddess. It’s going to take every scrap of Finn’s Irish luck and pluck to save himself, and his master, from death. Or worse.
