The latest book in The Copernicus Legacy series has just arrived! Woo-hoo! This is great!! This is really, really---wait a second. I'm getting carried away. The Iron Guy must show his usual manly restraint at the good news:
|WHOOPEEE!!!!!! This is GREAT!!!!!!!!!|
Ahem, this is what I had in mind:
|That's more like it.|
You say you haven't read any of The Copernicus Legacy books? Then what are you waiting for?? Go check them out! Now! As I said, they are that good. Start with The Forbidden Stone, the first in the series. Don't forget to check The Copernicus Files books too; they're a couple of "in-between" books that take place between books 1 and 2 and books 2 and 3.
Every few years an author bursts out of nowhere to surprise and delight us with a series that's new, exciting and totally unlike anything else. Rick Riordan did it first with Percy Jackson, then Phil Bildner and Loren Long gave us the Barnstormers/Sluggers books and now Tony Abbott (though he has been around quite a while) has "wowed" the world with The Copernicus Legacy. People like him keep reading fresh and fun and for that I'm very grateful.
Wait a minute---did I say this book is the final one in the series?? Awww, man! I wanted more!!
Oh, well, the Iron Guy will take the disappointment, as he always does, like a truly MANLY MAN:
Oh, forget it! Go check out these books. You'll enjoy them a lot. And let me know how you like them.
PS--the book that you see in these photos is one that Mr. Abbott sent me himself. And he signed it! Thanks, Mr. Abbott!
