Overview

Imagine Percy Jackson and the Olympians, except with a fresher cast of characters and an entirely sport-infused narrative, and you've got Ring Force. Just in time for the Olympics in London, Ring Force is poised to be the illustrated chapter book of the summer and an instant favorite for kids between 8 and 12 years old.

In the book, which is complete with more than 50 full-color, eye-catching illustrations, we meet Booker—a young boy from Brooklyn with an incredible talent for running. As the chapters unfold, Booker crosses paths with other super-athletic (almost super-human) kids, and they ultimately join together as a team. But not just any team. These kids have been recruited by the gods of Olympus to fight an evil, rogue god and to keep the Olympic flame (and all that it stands for) burning in the hearts of men.

For any kid who has ever dreamed of making it as an athlete (or for any kid who simply likes a good adventure story), Brian Brown's Ring Force provides an action-packed ride of a lifetime.

A captivating sports fantasy story that will appeal to both Rick Riordan/Greek Mythology fans and kids who enjoy sport books. Love how the author interwove historical details of famous Oympians l(like Muhammed Ali) throughout the story.
