I’m hosting a snippet today from a middle grade book that sounds like a blast, “The Taming”.
Plumpkin froze as he struggled for breath. Unable to take his eyes off the scene before him, he watched as the snake struck again and again, making mincemeat out of the bulky animal. It was a scene that would surely haunt him for the rest of his life. Slitherers just don’t attack raccoons without reason. Something wasn’t right. This was no ordinary attack—more so, this was no ordinary slitherer!

Genre: Middle Grade
A forbidden journey. A secret agenda. A mysterious object.
When Thutter McClutter, a young Glade-dwelling shrew, willingly decides to break the ancient Code and cross into the shadowy darkness of the great Woode, he is certain that seeing the mysterious Solkreat is the goal. But as he and his friends near the curious Creature, an altogether different agenda is exposed. One of his fellow adventurers wants the magic hogseye. However, the powerful and wicked Beastmonger also covets the enchanted object, and he will stop at nothing to get it—not even murder.
A story of true friendship, lasting faith, and willing sacrifice, The Taming is the first installment of the Refuge Chronicles—an adventurous trilogy about a young shrew, his newly-discovered purpose, and the ancient conflict between Light and Darkness.
Atticus never intended on becoming a writer; however, he eventually would come to realize that Magic’s stories were meant to be shared. He now spends most of his time putting pen to paper readying the tales he’s collected for publishing. Mr. Krum resides on a small farm in the Midwest with Albi, his albino ferret. He travels only when absolutely necessary. He does not care to be photographed and almost never smiles. What’s more, he dresses almost exclusively in black. He says that the latter is for simplicity sake, but those who know him are certain that he is just color blind. To learn more about Atticus, please visit his website: www.atticuskrum.com.
