The first book in the Billy Rhinestone fantasy series is a masterful melding of young adult adventure & romance with adult-level action, suspense, intrigue, and mystery. Billy Rhinestone features the art of Brandon Dorman, #1 New York Times Bestselling artist. Plus a bonus sneak peek into Book 2!
When Billy and his best friend Max discover bizarre gemstones on a dead man during one of their boyish neighborhood adventures, their fates are forever changed. For no sooner than the gems make contact with their flesh, they begin to manifest magical characteristics.
As the boys experiment with their newfound powers they unknowingly attract the attention of the worst enemies imaginable who will stop at nothing to get the stones for themselves. Inexperienced as the boys are, they must improvise to protect themselves, their families, and a first love from increasing perils. In so doing, they become unwitting key-players in a clandestine war that’s been waging for millennia.
Billy Rhinestone compares in genre and feel to Brandon Mull’s, Fabelhaven, or Richard Paul Evans’ Michael Vey. If you loved Rob Reiner’s “Stand by me,” Richard Donner’s “Goonies,” or J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter, you'll love “Billy Rhinestone!”
