iAi founding member Elise Stokes has published Cassidy Jones and the Eternal Flame, the fifth book in the Cassidy Jones Adventures.
"I’m thrilled to announce the release of Cassidy Jones and the Eternal Flame," says Elise.
The first Cassidy Jones adventure, Cassidy Jones & the Secret Formula, published in 2011 and quickly gained not only critical acclaim but a large audience of middle-grade and young adult readers. Stokes followed that with Cassidy Jones & Vulcan's Gift at the end of the same year, Cassidy Jones & the Seventh Attendant in 2013 and Cassidy Jones & The Luminous in 2014.
"This was a two-year writing venture, one in which I felt would never come to completion at times. However, when I consider the many new developments in this installment, the extra year that it took to write makes sense. Along with inventing unusual ways to further complicate Cassidy’s life, I go deeper with the main characters, showing new facets of their personalities and revealing much about who they are in the face of extraordinary challenges. They are growing with the story, essentially. When I started writing this series eight years ago, I would have never guessed where it would be today, and I look forward to seeing where it takes Cassidy and me."
Along with the new book, Stokes has given the whole Cassidy Jones Adventures series a new graphical treatment with new covers for all five books in the series by Twin Art Design. "Twin Art Design came up with a modern, sleek look for the series. Paul, whom I highly recommend, created the perfect visual representation of what a reader can expect from my superhero. His exceptional book cover designs scream adventure, danger, and mystery. I couldn’t be more pleased."
If you haven’t given Cassidy Jones a try and would like to, the series is available on Amazon, and can be read for free on Kindle Unlimited. If you would like the first six chapters of Cassidy Jones and the Eternal Flame as a sample, email the author at info[at]cassidyjonesadventures[dot]com.
Says the author: "I hope you’ll join me on Cassidy’s journey!"
What's Cassidy Jones & The Eternal Flame about?
Some boundaries should never be crossed…
The diabolical Metal Woman takes three people hostage. Her ransom demand: the location of a mysterious and unprecedented weapon, rumored to have been a gift to the Third Reich from Vulcan, the Roman god of fire.
When a rescue attempt goes sideways, Cassidy Jones seeks justice. Her quest leads her to the Seattle Underground, where she falls into the grip of an inexplicable evil. Cassidy learns too late that her desire for revenge may cost the life of someone she loves.
