…with characters you will never forget.


“You are more than you think you are.”

That’s what Wendell keeps telling himself when no one’s looking.

To think that he ever complained about his life before now.

Go to school. Get a job.

Try to find a girlfriend.

It was so simple!

So… ‘normal.’
(Except the girlfriend part…)

Unfortunately for Wendell, the Universe had other plans for him after High School.

Welcome to a world of wonder, magic & mayhem. Where giants, elves, dwarves and gnomes are real…and those wielding great magical power (called ‘Mägo’) speak with animals, manipulate nature…and command the very elements themselves.

It’s a world saturated by myth and legend, where shadows roam free and dragons walk among men, unseen.

For nearly a millennia the evil of this world has been bound. A darkness discovered and set loose, embraced by free will and choice—all to satisfy an unquenchable lust for power. Lord of Lies, Serpent of the Shadows, The Betrayer…he is known by many names, though one is whispered by all…


His desire is to conquer all life and subject it to his will.

As in all great stories, a hero is called.

Hidden among the people of Earth to preserve his life, a messenger is sent to bring the youth home.

Foreordained to battle the darkness, he is given the Itharithe Hero gem, allowing this last of a royal bloodline to do what no other can:

Defeat the evil encroaching upon the world once and for all.

Prophecy declare he is to become the greatest Mägo the world has ever known!

Now with the whole world dependent upon young Wendell, there’s only one challenge left he must overcome.

…they grabbed the wrong guy.

Welcome to the world of WANTED HERO

"As an avid reader of a lot of different types of books, it takes a lot for me to relate and like a main character. Wendell captured my attention right from the beginning… He strives for a better life yet fails to realize that as a person he's good-hearted enough to be proud of who he is. I felt such a connection with Wendall that I almost feel protective of him. Perhaps a strange feeling, but I'm definitely looking forward to reading the further development of his character in the upcoming books."

"I was always a sucker for comedy, but this book had me laughing till me cheeks hurt. Wendell has so many hilarious side comments and thoughts that I couldn't help but want to see how he reacted to everything. Wendell has a way of sucking you into the story and if by the time your done with the first 3 chapters you aren't asking for more, I would be very surprised."

"It has been a very long time since I have been deeply moved by a book. And you know you have found a great book when you want to slap the author and give the author a hug at the same time, when you take some of the plot turns personally."

− Nathan Dilts, USA

"The novel gripped me from the first few sentences. I had no doubt that the book would be an interesting one. The method used by the author to bring in his audience before every chapter started was by using an unfamiliar technique. He would create a quote that would relate to the characters or the situation in the chapter. I loved this technique because as a reader it made me think and also it made me relate and think back to the quote while reading."

"This is the kind of story that makes me fall in love with reading all over again. I loved the main character Wendall and his minds inner workings reminds me of me. The true beauty of this book is how vast this universe is, its not just one guy saving the world, but worlds upon worlds. I can't wait to see where Wendall ends up next!"

"There were a few things about this book that really impressed me. Jaime Buckley’s narration style was one of them. It was very different and full of wicked humors that had me laughing and smiling occasionally. He made Wendell, the MC, seemed truly relatable. Wendell’s struggle with his confidence was realistic and genuine. Every kid, boys and girls, faces the same issue as Wendell’s every day and being an unlikely hero, Wendell chooses not to walk away from challenges but instead faces them like a real, well…‘hero’."

"There were some times that I had to put it down. The way Buckley writes his descriptions, when it comes to violent encounters--I felt like I was right there. It was almost creepy! I cringed. I looked over my shoulder...
I think I even ducked once."
