"The price of becoming a new creature is the death of the old..."
A desperate wizard. An old enemy. A hidden monster.
In a fit of genius (and cowardice) Simon has left his friends frozen in time, awaiting their deaths. Meanwhile, he explores the ancient magical city of Tarinea in hopes that he might find a way to save them. If he's lucky, he might find another bloodstone while he's at it. But Tarinea isn't quite what the travel brochures said it would be. It's a place of dark magic, ancient mysteries, old enemies, brutal competitions, of monsters and mayhem, of silent sorcerers, and foul intentions. To get through, he will have to trust a strange new friend, survive a mysterious teacher, and face the dangers of the Titan's Groan...
Author Austin J. Bailey has entertained over a quarter of a million readers with his bestselling children's books, and his latest work is better than ever. Featuring an endearingly overconfident and hilarious boy genius, Simon Fayter and the Tomb of Rone is the third book in the series.
Here's what readers are saying:
"Move over Harry Potter...a more realistically behaving teen wizard commando is here. And we LOVE him. There are VERY few authors for this genre I truly enjoy. Bailey makes up for all the other attempts at finding a great writer for my kids (and me) out there I've made in the last few years.. He's superb. I'm talking Pullman /Lewis things are in this guy's future. Me and my kids adore him. Read ALL his stuff, seriously. Simon Fayter is An Incredible Story. Bailey does so much in it that connects the reader to the main character. It's quirky, funny, and his dedication to his craft shines through. (The *footnotes*.....to die for!! Don't miss out on them!!)"
"This book was such an amazing read! If you liked Percy Jackson or Inkheart, then you will definitely love this book!"
"I'm a 37-year-old father of three that finds little time to read. However, my 12-year-old son was given this book so I wanted to check it out. After only about three days I'd read it in it's entirety not being able to put it down."
"WOW! What a journey! Never knowing what will happen next, I was immediately hooked. Austin J. Bailey has created a universe magical in more ways than one, deeply intriguing, and full of adventure while maintaining a wonderful sense of humor. This is a must read!"
"This book is full of cleverness, adventure, and humor. With magic and mysteries and a dragon or two. It's an original, not just like any other book, but I think people will like it who liked: Harry Potter, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians, Michael Vey, or the Frog Princess books."
"Awesome book! It's like a mix of Harry Potter & Percy Jackson - a young egotistic kid who finds himself in a magic world where he has special abilities and great friends..."

Simon Fayter and the Titan’s Groan was amazing! I was very much looking forward to this book, and was not disappointed. I could practically see the fighting in front of me, it was written so well. Thank you Austin Bailey for such an entertaining read.
