Giveaway: Land of Whoo and interview with author Ryan O'Brien

The Land of Whoo
Land of Whoo by Ryan O'Brien
An adopted Michael Henry yearned for some excitement in his life. Away from his friends, in a new neighborhood and school, he discovers the adventures of a lifetime as he learns of a portal with access to the Land of Whoo.
Michael Henry’s adoptive mother is a nurse named Sam who works in a downtown Seattle dialysis clinic. His adoptive father, Daniel, has been out of work for the past two years after his construction business failed due to the economy. Michael Henry is close to them both but still wonders about his past.
On the other side of the portal, the secrets of Michael Henry’s past and future will be revealed to him, but first he must prove himself worthy as he faces the challenges of the Five Trials to take his rightful place as the Chosen One. Can he help his grandfather, King Titus, take back his kingdom from the Dark Wizard and Master Uror? What powers does the Medallion hold? Will he be able to free the oppressed and bring freedom to the citizens and creatures in the Land of Whoo?
