In this exciting fantasy series from Adam Jay Epstein, Wily Snare has spent his whole life underground, designing ingenious traps to protect an ancient wizard’s gold from treasure seekers. Then an unusual band of adventurers achieve the impossible, escaping all of his traps. But the prize they seek is Wily himself. With his skills, they can invade every dungeon in the kingdom—and with his help, they may be able to topple the tyrannical Infernal King who terrorizes the land.
“Fabulous characters and a unique mythology combine to create something really wonderful. Snared will ensnare you.”—New York Times bestselling author Michael Scott (on Snared: Escape to the Above)
