“We're deep in a land not made for men.” Knife-edge Negotiations. Deep in the tropical swamps of Tanzia, where anacondas and crocodiles thrive just out of sight and mosquitoes thicken the air, dwell the mysterious Anurans. The frog-like tribe is isolated, distrustful, and the guardians of a powerful form of sorcery no others can claim. Chadwick Yates’ powers of wilderness survival and diplomacy are put to the ultimate test in his quest to know how they vanish and where they go. Yates and his long-suffering companion, Thurston Sharp, have one way forward: compete in a very dangerous Anuran sport... About the Series “Yates shouldered his shotgun and poured cartridge after cartridge of triple-aught shot into the minotaur. The monster howled and turned to face him, ruby eyes alight like coals.” Monsters and elephant guns face off as Ambassador Chadwick Yates and Navy Commander Thurston Sharp explore the Forbidden Continent of Tanzia. The pair must adapt to the curious cultures of Gremlins, Faeries, Anurans, and others to make allies, and fight off the evil creatures that serve an ancient sorcerer. The Adventures of Chadwick Yates is for readers who love action in exotic locales. The series blends the Lost World literary genre of Indiana Jones and King Solomon's Mines with the magic and monsters of epic fantasy. Featuring real 19th century gadgets and a gorgeously-realized world, the series was inspired by such works as Allan Quatermain, Sherlock Holmes, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Heart of Darkness, The Most Dangerous Game, and The Lost World.
