Hit the Open Road With Helen and Troy

Helen and Troy's Epic Roadquest by A. Lee MartinezGot any vacation plans this summer? You do now thanks to a brand new novel by A. Lee Martinez. HELEN AND TROY’S EPIC ROAD QUEST is a hilarious retelling of two mythic heroes’ journey from the author of CHASING THE MOON (US | UK | AUS)  and EMPEROR MOLLUSK VERSUS THE SINISTER BRAIN (US | UK | AUS)

Here is your itinerary:

Witness the epic battle of the cyclops!

Visit the endangered dragon preserve!  Please, no slaying.

Solve the mystery of The Mystery Cottage, if you dare!

Buy some knick knacks from The Fates!  They might come in handy later.

On a road trip across an enchanted America, Helen and Troy will discover all this and more.  If the curse placed upon them by an ancient god doesn’t kill them or the pack of reluctant orc assassins don’t catch up to them, Helen and Troy might reach the end their journey in one piece, where they might just end up destroying the world.  Or at least a state or two.

A minotaur girl, an all-American boy, a three-legged dog, and a classic car are on the road to adventure, where every exit leads to adventure.  Whether they like it or not.

Pack your bags (no passports required) and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime! Read the first chapter now. 

Praise for HELEN AND TROY’S EPIC ROAD QUEST:

“The ever-mercurial Martinez offers up a sweetly charming, gleefully entertaining tale of two teens traveling across the country, one mythic encounter at a time.” – Publishers Weekly

“It’s been a while since I’ve read a book cover to cover in one day, but your entertaining storyline and awesome characters sucked me in from the very start.” – Forever YA
