Synopsis for Brew by David Estes (Goodreads):  Salem’s Revenge strikes without warning or mercy, ravaging the powerless human race under the forces of united gangs of witches, wizards, and warlocks. During the slaughter, Rhett Carter’s foster parents and sister are killed, and his best friend and girlfriend are abducted by a gang of witches calling themselves the Necromancers, who deal in the dark magic of raising the dead. Rhett’s sword-wielding neighbor with a mysterious past saves Rhett from becoming another casualty of the massacre and teaches him the skills he needs to survive in this new world.

Rhett is broken, his normal high school life of book blogging and football playing shoved in a witch-apocalyptic blender. The only thing he has left is his burning desire for revenge. Armed with his new witch hunting skills and a loyal, magic powered dog named Hex, he sets out into the unknown with one mission: hunt and destroy those who took away everyone he ever loved.

But Rhett isn’t just a witch hunter; He has secrets of his own that he has yet to discover, secrets that his enemies will stop at nothing to keep him from.

And discovering the truth about himself is the human race’s only hope.

Synopsis for Boil by David Estes (Goodreads):  Revenge. That’s all  that’s left for witch hunter Rhett Carter. The magic-born have stripped  everything from him – killed his friends, cursed his warlock father,  shattered his future – leaving him bare and broken, but not dead. Their  mistake.

When Rhett and Laney are suddenly thrust in different  directions, Rhett must decide who to trust and who to kill. Backed by  his trusty canine sidekick Hex, Rhett will embark on his deadliest  mission yet, one that will lead him directly toward those who want him  dead, pushing his unique resistance to magic to the edge and back again  as he tries to remove his father’s curse.

Separated from Rhett,  Laney seeks to understand the strange changes to her sister, Trish,  who’s believed to be the last living Clairvoyant, and what role she’s  destined to play in the future of humankind.

Wrapped around  everything are four major groups: the Necromancers, the Changelings, the  witch hunters, and New America, the remnants of humanity. When the  major forces are brought together for an epic battle, the fate of the  world hangs in the balance.

*** To celebrate the launch of Brew and Boil, David Estes is also giving away FREE Kindle copies of his popular YA dystopian/adventure book, Fire Country.


Synopsis for Fire Country by David Estes (Goodreads):  In a changed world where the sky bleeds red, winter is hotter than hell and full of sandstorms, and summer’s even hotter with raging fires that roam the desert-like country, the Heaters manage to survive, barely.

Due to toxic air, life expectancies are so low the only way the tribe can survive is by forcing women to procreate when they turn sixteen and every three years thereafter. It is their duty as Bearers.

Fifteen-year-old Siena is a Youngling, soon to be a Bearer, when she starts hearing rumors of another tribe of all women, called the Wild Ones. They are known to kidnap Youngling girls before the Call, the ceremony in which Bearers are given a husband with whom to bear children with.

As the desert sands run out on her life’s hourglass, Siena must uncover the truth about the Wild Ones while untangling the web of lies and deceit her father has masterfully spun.
