"...will grip the reader'stotal attention from beginning to end. Very highly recommended for school and community library..." -Midwest Book Review
"...an entertaining and fast-paced read that guarantees to thrill any young reader's/gamer's wish to be a hero in a faraway time." -Historical Novel Society
When nerd and gamer, Max Anderson, tries out an experimental computer game, he doesn't realize he's playing the ultimate history game, time-traveling into the past...anywhere...anytime. Survival is optional. To return home he must decipher the game's rules and complete its missions--if he lives long enough. To fail means to stay in the past--forever.   
Now he's trapped in medieval Germany, unprepared and clueless. It is 1471 and he quickly learns that being an outcast may cost him his head. Especially after rescuing a beautiful peasant girl from a deadly infection and thus provoking sinister wannabe Duke Ott. Overnight he is dragged into a hornet's nest of feuding lords who will stop at nothing to bring down the conjuring stranger in their midst.

Kids graduating from the Magic Tree House series and fans of time-travel and historical action/adventure will love this trilogy based on actual historical events, locations and people.

From the Author:

I was inspired to write the Escape from the Past trilogy when visiting the medieval ruins of Castle Hanstein in Thuringia, Germany. The old walls seemed to speak to me and when I read about Knight Werner, Lord of Hanstein who'd rescued a beautiful lady from a tyrant Duke, I was hooked.

Add to that my sons who are avid gamers and who at the time spent way too many hours in front of the computer. So I asked myself what would happen if a gamer would be able to time-travel and find himself in a medieval world.

The idea of Escape from the Past was born.
