Armando Rings is the author of sci-fi page-turner The Spirit of Scalibrae. Meet him Saturday morning at Main Street Books!
In The Spirit of Scalibrae, Trevor Clouse lives an average, introverted life in his hometown of Mystic City. He goes to school, deals with bullies, and mostly stays out of trouble. But when Trevor receives an old sword as a gift from his grandfather on his 18th birthday, his life takes an abrupt turn--his grandfather is suddenly murdered by Krain, a madman with telekinetic power, and he is shocked to learn that his seemingly normal sword is alive, possessed by a supernatural entity named Scalibrae. Scalibrae vows to help Trevor find Krain and bring him to justice. For Scalibrae has his own score to settle with Krain--one that dates back a couple centuries. Along the way, Trevor finds himself being pulled out of his comfortable, laid-back life as he and Scalibrae take on some of Mystic City's back-alley criminals, only to be stamped a vigilante by police. Meanwhile, Trevor's own father, Eric Clouse, a Mystic City Police officer, desperately hopes to take down Krain, but he becomes just as interested in the new vigilante in town. While Trevor and Eric are busy with their problems, Krain himself is piecing together a plan of his own. A plot to dominate Mystic City.
