"Adventure from the time you open the first page...pulse-pounding...perfect reading." - Kathryn Bennett, Readers Favorite

Buckle in! The award-winning series cranks up the intensity with more action, more humor, and more romance as Greyson and his lovable friends discover the world is far more complicated and the terrorists far more sinister than they ever imagined.

After thwarting a major terrorist attack, the twelve-year-old secret savior of thousands, Greyson Gray, is given a new identity and forced into seclusion to hide from the Eye of Eyes - the most wanted man in the world and the leader of a rising terrorist group trying to divide the United States.

But Greyson can only be secluded so long. Drawn toward suspicious activity at the massive Iowa State Fair, Greyson and his faithful friends uncover a plot even more insidious than before - one that threatens the fibers of the nation and possibly the next president of the United States. For Greyson, everything is on the line - his father's whereabouts, his relationship with Sydney, and the lives of everyone he loves. With new weapons, a new rival in love, and new enemies, there's no holding back. It's all fair game.

Tweedt's (Greyson Gray: Camp Legend, 2012) preteen hero returns, this time combating terrorists that are planning an attack at the Iowa State Fair. It's been less than two months since 12 year-old Greyson Gray foiled a terrorist plot in his previous adventure. He's now under the protection of FBI Agent Kip, who guards Greyson against possible retaliation from Everett Oliver Emory, the notorious terrorist brother of the man whose plans Greyson ruined. The boy is allowed to attend the fair with his friends, but it's not long before Pluribus, an anti-government group with a possible connection to Emory, makes its presence known. There are four presidential candidates at the fair, which leads Greyson and his pals to expect the worst. This second book in Tweedt's series has a similar plot to the first, in which Greyson fought terrorists at a sports camp, but a decidedly darker tone: Not everyone makes it to the end, and not everything is neatly resolved. Greyson, still sporting his trademark fanny pack, shows some new signs of maturity as he questions what, if anything, lies beyond death. There are some other familiar faces, including meek, stuttering Liam; twins Jarryd and Nick; and romantic interest Sydney. This time, Greyson has competition for Sydney's affections in the form of Sam, the charming son of a governor. Jarryd, as in the previous book, provides comic relief even when he isn't trying to do so; his text to Greyson to let him know he's at the "rondayvoo" is particularly hilarious. But many new characters are just as memorable, including an unnamed assassin whose peeling skin (from radiation poisoning) is reminiscent of a snake's; his creepiest moment comes when he asks Greyson, who's watching Sam and Sydney on the dance floor, "Something troublin' it?"—"it" meaning Greyson. The book's final third is almost exclusively made up of action scenes, as it bounces among the perspectives of different characters, including Greyson, Kip, Greyson's mom and Jarryd, while maintaining an impressive, tireless pace. Overall, this novel is both an improvement over the last installment and a fitting lead-in for the next in the series. Readers who liked Greyson's first adventure will be more than happy with this latest outing.

Meet the Author

B.C. Tweedt lives in North Liberty, Iowa, with his beautiful wife, Julie, and his son, Maverick. Because he can be a big kid at times, he enjoys hanging with other kids. He volunteers at a youth group and mentors boys in his free time. There is nothing he loves more than seeing kids grow in wisdom and character. The characters in The Greyson Gray Series are a conglomeration of many of the real personalities and humors he knows and interacts with on a daily basis.

Though Greyson Gray: Rubicon is only the fourth book published from B.C. Tweedt, he has plans for a fairly long series, following Greyson as he grows up in an increasingly divided and threatening world. B.C. has thoroughly enjoyed brainstorming ideas for this series while running, listening to epic movie soundtracks, and researching in exotic places like the Bahamas...and Texas.

Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite Greyson Gray: Fair Game by B.C. Tweedt is the second book in the series of Greyson Gray, the 12-year-old savior of thousands. In this edition, Greyson must go into seclusion under a new identity to hide from the Eye of Eyes, a man who is most wanted and a leader of a terrorist group that wants to bring a new Civil War to America. Greyson, however, cannot remain in seclusion for long when some suspicious activity shows up at the Iowa State Fair. What will happen in this new adventure? Well, I admit I did not read the first in this series and, that said, I do plan to go back and read it. However, Fair Game can be read as a standalone, you don’t feel too lost with it. Greyson is definitely an interesting character. I never would have thought a character so young could be so complex (not to mention world saving) but it all works really well. The adventure part is spot on and the book is pretty pulse-pounding. You get the adventure from the time you open the book until the last page. The pacing is great and the characters across the board are well written. This is everything I like to see in a Young Adult book and I think it would be perfect reading for the target audience. I would highly recommend this one for adults who love to read Young Adult and of course Young Adults. It would make the perfect holiday gift to give them the first two books in the series.
