Can their friendship survive its greatest test? Can Sam and Jake stop a war and save their parents?

PRAISE for WHIPEYE CHRONICLES
"Loved the book. It should be a movie."
-Rick Kogan, WGN Chicago Tribune
"The story itself is pure genius..."
-Savannah, NC, 5-star review LitPick.com
"Whipeye is a thrilling magical adventure with surprises at
every turn, a story that deserves to be read."
-Laurisa White Reyes, author of The Celestine Chronicles series &
Editor-in-Chief of Middle Shelf Magazine
"I read the first chapter to both of the 5th grade classes at Rusch and they just loved the WhipEye book. Geoff is an awesome writer!!!! He really kept the students' attention.
In fact, they were begging me to read more."
-Tamie Pinion, 5th Grade Teacher, Rusch Elementary
"Saign takes readers to an intricate, magical world filled with new adventures, old enemies, and more than a little bit of danger. Heroine Sam discovers her own personal
strength while also finding the familial love she thought she lost when her mother passed away. WhipEye is an intense page-turner that will keep readers wondering what comes
next and how Sam and her friends will defeat nearly insurmountable odds."
-Jillian Bergsma, Contributing Editor, Independent Publisher
"WhipEye is a gripping, imaginative adventure from start to finish. I didn't want to put it down until the very last page! I think Gorgon is the best book in the series so far! The author, Geoffrey Saign, brought all the characters to life. Sam is my favorite character because of her passion for wildlife, and her kindness and compassion for others--animals and humans alike. Gorgon is an amazing book and I cannot wait for book three!
-Nicholas, 5-star Review LitPick.com
"Action, adventure, great characters and message.
My students LOVE WhipEye and Gorgon."
-Pam Blaskowski, Media Specialist, Grey Cloud Elementary
"The Whipeye Chronicles really keep you on the edge of your seat!
My students (and myself!) can't wait for the next book!"
-Shannon Kreuzinger, 3rd grade teacher, John Muir Elementary
"Loved the book! My grade 5 teachers...have read chapter 1 to the kids! They are begging for more! Gorgon is the book you start to read and can't put down until you're done. Mr Saign does it again, just when you think you have it figured out, there's another element added to Jake and Sam's adventure. Captivating read for all ages!! Can't wait for book #3! I am going to buy books for the school library, it won't be on the shelf long!"
-Carol Thoma, Media Specialist, Bailey Elementary
"After reading WhipEye, I was anxious to read the sequel ... I was not disappointed!
As much as I liked the first book, I enjoyed Gorgon even more. The character development, action, and pacing kept me hooked and, as the story neared the end, I found myself anticipating what questions may be answered in his next book, Drasine."
-Cathy Pinkosky, Reading Specialist, SEC, District 287
"The WhipEye series is a rollicking great adventure and my students really relate to the characters. They can't wait to get their hands on the next volume. It gets them excited about reading!"
-Eileen Marshall, Elementary LMS, Portage Community Schools
"... one of the most imaginative tales I have read in a very long time. I recommend it to all readers who enjoy the theme of good versus evil in a majestically magical battle which trumps any fantasy tale I have ever read."
- Rosie Malezer 5-Star review from Readers' Favorite
"The author created a very polished read with well-developed characters and easy flowing dialogue. This is a book I would expect to be offered by a large publishing house as the attention to detail is definitely there."
-Judge in the Ian Book of the Year Awards
