**Book Spotlights & Giveaway** DragonMan Series by Ted Lazaris
Intro to Series The amazing story of DragonMan was born at the dawn of the 21st Century,
when the world, about to change forever, watched in disbelief as four passenger airliners crashed, not only into buildings and a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania, but into the American certainty that the
horrors of the outside world could not touch them at home. It was into this world that a new kind of superhero emerged, one for whom the lines between good and evil are blurred. Is he friend? Or is
he foe? No one knows for sure. What they do know, however, is that as a friend there is no one better.

Teenager Luke Starr appears to be living a rather dull uneventful life in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. That is until fate and a nameless, faceless mysterious dark force from a different plane of existence catapults Luke into a series of wondrous adventures, adventures that will change his life and those around him forever. Luke Starr, respected, feared and hated by many as the one born to greatness, is suddenly propelled with great swiftness into a nightmare, then forced to come face to face with destiny. Is it all a dream? A wild imagination perhaps? Or is this unimaginable journey into the unknown real?
The story unfolds with the mood of impending danger set early on, as a likable young teenage hero, Luke Starr, enters a mysterious realm of Earth known as the mythical world of Spellville, by way of an eerie portal in search of his kidnapped friends. But the journey for Luke is not so much a mission of mercy as one of self-discovery. For despite his humble midwest origins, Luke is no ordinary teenager. Imbued with super powers following a ritualistic exchange of blood with a clever dragon, Luke soon discovers the awesome legacy of his birthright, a dark side of great strength and brutal fury and must learn to accept the fact that he is known in this other world as The Chosen One.
In a pace that never flags, Luke and an ancient dragon must now join together in an epic struggle that is all neatly stitched together by an intriguing cast of characters, both good and evil and not-exactly-as-they-seem, wherein , a mysterious psychic and an ominous stranger and alien attack on Earth keep the action rolling until the climactic conclusion.

- The Poseidon Encounter
In Ted Lazaris's first fantasy adventure novel, Dragonman, the Adventures of Luke Starr, the reader was introduced to the likable Luke and his seemingly normal way of life growing up in Milwaukee,
Luke was portrayed as a quiet, average kid plagued by all the inherent problems of the typical American teen: dealing with a crush on a girl he's too shy to approach, pesky sisters constantly poking their noses into his business, bullies at school and exams to study for.
But Luke, readers soon discovered, was burdened by a far greater weight than any of his peers, as he struggled to come to terms with his birthright as The Chosen One, savior of the distant world of
Not only that, but, like hapless Peter Parker forced to juggle his complex life as Spider-Man while pursuing his love interest and his not-always-easy career, Luke had to learn to harness the enormous powers of DragonMan, his super alter-ego, a persona that regrettably did not come with an instruction manual.
In this second, action comic-like installment, DragonMan and the Poseidon Encounter, Luke seems to have come to terms with his legacy and appears well in control of his super powers--which he will be called upon to use this time around to save the world from an evil demon who seeks to claim the souls of every human being on earth.
The mood of impending danger is set from the very first page, when author Ted Lazaris takes off his gloves to delivering a knock-out of an opening scene: Five-year-old Bobby Blakely, running downstairs on the morning of his birthday, finds not the hoped for brand new bicycle as a gift, but rather an enormous blue whale that has somehow "washed up" in the small lake on his parent's isolated farm.
While many consider the whale's appearance a hoax, others believe it to be a sign of impending Biblical doom. And it is enough to rouse Luke's suspicions that worse is about to happen--which it does. In a pace that never flags, Poseidon Encounter unfolds in a complex thread of differing tales, from an old-fashioned detective murder mystery to a science fiction fantasy, all neatly stitched together by an intriguing cast of characters, both good and evil and not-exactly-as-they-seem.
An imaginative writer, Lazaris blends magic, mysticism, religion and the fast-paced action of the comic book world into a book that fans of the first DragonMan tale will find hard to put down!

Experiment In Terror
Milwaukee boy. Crown Prince of Spellville, aka DragonMan
Ten years ago, Luke discovered that he was the Chosen One of Spellville, a magical alternate dimension. He used his abilities as DragonMan to fight against the ruthless Unter. With the help of his great-grandfather Alaba and the other wizards of Spellville, Luke banished Unter into the inescapable Eon Vault. All was well. Until a Supernova lends Unter the power to break free…
Now, the Evil One is back and stronger than ever. Outraged by his previous defeat, Unter will hit Luke where it hurts most. Followers. Friends. Family. Kidnapping one of Luke’s sisters and his girlfriend Jenny Anderson, Unter will take one hostage on Earth, the other on Spellville. While the Dragon is distracted by his loved ones in peril, the Evil One will begin to terraform both worlds for his dying race.
Luke must make a choice: the Earth or Spellville, his sister or the woman he loves… A cat-and-mouse game with no rewards, only consequences. Our young hero must quickly adapt to this experiment in terror or watch his world be destroyed by a god-like being bent on revenge. Time is running out, Chosen One. Tick tock… Tick tock…
Born From Oblivion - God no longer rules supreme."
In the distant past, long before people populated the Earth, and before animals roamed the planet, something terrifying and cunning made its home in the vegetation covering the planet like a soft green blanket. Lying in wait for millions of years, this species continued to evolve. Patiently crossing over and manipulating the genetic code of different species. And now, this prefect omniscient being... born from oblivion, has awakened and is ready to feed... God No Longer Rules Supreme... IT'S COMING.
