Your enemies will do anything to stop you. Your best friend might be dead. And your only hope is your father...a man you've never met-until now.

Who would you trust?
Would you even trust yourself?

Bran Hambric believes that the Farfield Curse is over with. But when he discovers a safe-deposit box in his dead mother's name-in the very bank vault where he was discovered as a boy-Bran's past comes rushing back. Now he's on a frightening path that puts everyone he cares about in danger.

When Bran's best friend, Astara, is kidnapped, Bran will do whatever it takes to save her and prevent the evil mage on his trail from claiming the power of the curse for herself. But will the magic destroy him the way it destroyed his mother?

Bran Hambric: the Specter Key is a thrilling novel that shows amazing promise. With its action packed yet humorous plot line, Bran Hambric is a must read for Harry Potter and Percy Jackson fans alike! This is a great book for all age groups, so it is an awesome book for the whole family. Kaleb Nation outdid himself in this amazing sequel, and I hope all "Bran Fans" will agree with me when I say his second novel was even better than his first!

About the author (2010)

As a child, Kaleb Nation had to be forced to write one page a week in creative writing. But after he finished his first story, no one could make him to stop. Age twelve, he telephoned the editor of a major publisher to pitch his book, but got to talk with security instead. Years later, his books are now produced by publishers worldwide... including the one who first turned him down.
Aside from writing, Kaleb is a blogger and a former radio host. He turned 21 in 2009 and currently lives in California.
