In this exciting new release, when a mad witch with a magically crafted and frightfully powerful Obsidian Dagger threatens to obliterate humanity and overtake the magic clans of the Celtic Isles, destiny forces 17-year-old American, Brendan O’Neal, and his younger sister, Lizzie, to intervene.  Joining the desperate princess of the Leprechauns, Dorian, and her two loyal companions, Rory and Biddy, they embark on a dangerous and wondrous adventure across Ireland and Scotland to thwart the witch and save mankind.

Little does Brendan know that stopping the witch is only the beginning. Battling the witch’s mutated forces of magical beings, the heroic band in The Obsidian Dagger will have to reach deeper into themselves than they ever thought possible to find the strength, courage, and will to see their quest through to the end.  Brendan will soon learn that the lines between reality, mythology, and divinity are more blurred than he ever imagined.

The Obsidian Dagger is Mr. LaMar’s debut novel and has been met with great enthusiasm by test readers, reviewers, and booksellers.

When he’s not fighting evil witches and wizards, Mr. LaMar is an educator who resides in the Indianapolis Metropolitan area. He has taught science to middle school students for 12 years and works with teachers facilitating professional development and school improvement. He is married to Lori, a beautiful and supportive woman, and together they’re raising Evan and Paige, two intelligent and wonderful children.

The Obsidian Dagger is available everywhere books are sold. We especially thank Indy Reads Books, Robots and Rogues, and That Book Place for their extended support of Mr. LaMar and The Obsidian Dagger.
