What could go wrong when taking down the formidable Demon Lord? Well, just about everything when you’re equipped with a rookie team! If you’re a fan of Konosuba, or Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon, check out our free preview of new humorous series Defeating the Demon Lord’s a Cinch (If You’ve Got a Ringer).
Ten years have passed since the Demon Lord Kronos declared war on mankind. As the situation grows desperate, the Ruxe Kingdom summons a hero from another world to stand against this threat. Assigned by the Church to join the hero’s party, a battle-worn priest arrives to fulfill his obligations but is shocked to find that his companions are utterly inept! A mage that can only use fire magic, a swordswoman recently defected from her father’s fighting school, and a hero obsessed with women?? With an average level totaling only 15, there’s no way these novices are up for taking down a demon lord! But a job’s a job, so it’s up to the man of God (who thankfully has power to spare) to support these buffoons from the shadows. With an extraordinary healer on their side, taking down their target will be a cinch…hopefully.
Happy summer reading!

BRAVE by Svetlana Chmakova, nominated for ‘Best Children or Young Adult Book.’
In his daydreams, Jensen is the biggest hero that ever was, saving the world and his friends on a daily basis. But his middle school reality is VERY different–math is hard, getting along with friends is hard…Even finding a partner for the class project is a huge problem when you always get picked last. And the pressure’s on even more once the school newspaper’s dynamic duo, Jenny and Akilah, draw Jensen into the whirlwind of school news, social-experiment projects, and behind-the-scenes club drama. Jensen has always played the middle school game one level at a time, but suddenly, someone’s cranked up the difficulty setting. Will those daring daydreams of his finally work in his favor, or will he have to find real solutions to his real-life problems? The charming world of Berrybrook Middle School gets a little bigger in this highly anticipated follow-up to Svetlana Chmakova’s award-winning Awkward with a story about a boy who learns his own way of being brave!
