In this rip-roaring dungeon adventure, genius inventor Wily Snare must journey into a dangerous underground maze to find a mythical beast. Thanks to a crew of misfit treasure-seekers, Wily Snare has assumed his rightful place as King of Panthasos. Wily knows how to be a great trapsmith—devising and building various contraptions to keep plunderers at bay—but he has no idea how to be a good king. And he hasn’t escaped his past. Stalag, mage who once kept him locked away, is amassing an army of stone soldiers to seize the kingdom. Wily’s only hope is to tame a lair beast, a giant creature that’s the only chance against the evil wizard’s army. But first, Wily and his friends will need to survive the journey to the strange and deadly “Below” where the lair beast dwells.

Snared: Escape to the Above is the first book in a new middle-grade fantasy adventure series from bestselling author Adam Jay Epstein. Chopping blades, scorpion nests, giant spiderwebs—no one makes traps better than Wily Snare. He has never seen the sun, or blue sky, or even his parents. Wily Snare lives underground, creating traps to keep treasure-seekers away from the gold in an ancient wizard’s dungeon. He spends his days mopping up giant slug slime, avoiding poison darts, and herding undead skeletons. It’s all he knows. Until an unusual band of adventurers—an acrobatic elf, a warrior with a magic arm, and a giant made of moss—successfully defeat Wily’s traps. And they want the ultimate treasure: Wily himself. His skills can help them invade every other dungeon in the kingdom. He might even aid their fight against the Infernal King, whose gearfolk and prisonauts terrorize the land. But for a boy who has never been outside, dungeons aren’t nearly as scary as the world above. Or an evil king who builds the trickiest traps of all . . .

Description :


Most people don't plan to have an affair. And most of them think it could never happen to them. Because they don't recognize the subtle danger signs, they can suddenly find themselves in a dangerous relationship -- with devastating consequences. It can start off innocently enough. Someone cares enough to pay attention. To look into your eyes. To touch with understanding. Even with the best of motives, it's easy to slip gradually, almost imperceptibly, into the snare of an emotional or sexual entanglement. In The Snare -- a frank, sometimes startling book -- Lois Mowday Rabey gives us a clear look at the paths to sexual immorality using real-life accounts of Christians who have struggled and failed. She returns repeatedly to the single focus that conquers temptation: a strong personal relationship with Christ. And she outlines the clear guidelines in Scripture for establishing healthy relationships in today's value neutralÓ world. Rabey offers specific advice for conduct in the workplace (where many affairs begin), for gracefully getting out of compromising situations, and for single adults (whether never married, widowed, or divorced). We shouldn't push the issue of immorality aside because we seem to be okay, because we feel secure in the center of an evangelical church, have daily devotions, and memorize Scripture,Ó writes Rabey. We can have all these right practices and more, yet still fall.Ó Emotional and sexual entanglements are a snare. They are so enticing, so promising, and they offer something that seems so good. Lois Mowday Rabey helps us see them for the dangerous trap they really are. And she offers help to those wanting to avoid the snare or escape its grasp. Whether you work with people who struggle with this issue or you just want to protect yourself against the subtle snare of immorality, 'The Snare' is an invaluable resource.
