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 . . .

For over twenty-years Sam Steele lived with a lie gnawing at his conscience — for twenty-years his only child believed her mother was dead. Without warning his ex-wife springs from the ashes of the past and reaches out to him in his capacity as a veteran Immigration Custom Enforcement agent. When Sam’s ex-wife dumps a father’s living nightmare into his lap, he must choose between doing his duty as a law enforcer and jeopardizing his cherished relationship with his daughter. Circumstances beyond his control leave him no choice. Before he can seek forgiveness, TERRI ANNE disappears. Sam neglects his duties as an ICE agent and becomes obsessed in finding her. In the wake of his search he discovers a trail of murder, illegal Green Card marriages, and unveils a jihadist’s plot to launch a terror attack on American soil. Truth and time are ICE agent SAM STEELE’S enemy. SYLVIA MAROUN, the ex-wife, is a self-absorbed middle-aged woman with an appetite for young foreign men. Money and her sexuality have always been the solution to her problems. Sylvia becomes mired in a predicament she can’t buy her way out of and is unprepared for the reality of her young husband’s latest love interest. She will face the sins of her past. TERRI ANNE is a young naïve college student with above average book smarts, but lacks a thimbleful of common sense. These characteristics combined with the desire to escape the confines of a smothering and overprotective father will land Terri in the middle of murder and into the arms of a terrorist sleeper cell. MAGGIE O’MALLEY is Sam’s spunky assistant and lover for twelve years who has a difficult time keeping her thoughts to herself. She harbors a secret past she hopes will help Sam unravel the disappearance of his daughter. In her zealous attempt to save the day she not only jeopardizes her relationship with Sam, but also her own life. RASHID MAROUN is an impulsive, charming, narcissist playboy who successfully arranges Green Card marriages. On the surface, his main motivations are money and a good time. Beneath that glitz lurks a cunning villain looking for an escape from his rich wife and fanatical cousin, Jaali. JAALI DIAAB is a renegade and impatient radical who is rejected by the inner circle of jihadists. He is determined to prove to the world that there are other warriors besides Al Qaida, Hamas, and Isis that can strike a blow in the heart of the Great Satan. When his foolish cousin, Rashid, becomes involved in murder, it jeopardizes the mission he has been planning for months. INTO THE DEVIL’S DEN weaves a tangled tale of suspense, murder, and treachery. Each twisted circumstance is triggered by the one (albeit well intentioned) lie Sam Steele told his daughter — a lie that erupts into more lies and leaves lives dangling by a single thread.

Irony 101—The Spider herself snared in someone else’s web… Another week, another few clues trickling in about the Circle, the mysterious group that supposedly runs the city’s underworld. Gathering intel on my hidden enemies is a painstaking process, but a more immediate mystery has popped up on my radar: a missing girl. My search for the girl begins on the mean streets of Ashland, but with all the killers and crooks in this city, I’m not holding out much hope that she’s still alive.
