Book Tour, Guest Post, and Giveaway: The Wizard Killer by Adam Dreece


What inspired you to write this book?
My daughter gave me the nudge to start writing The Yellow Hoods series, starting with Along Came a Wolf. In terms of The Wizard Killer, that was a nod to when I was a late teen and wrote "bubblegum superhero" serials.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Wow, where to start? Well, we've got more seasons of The Wizard Killer coming over the next two years. Also, in the fall, I'm releasing Tilruna - Season One, which is my debut fantasy space opera. Next year, Yellow Hoods fans can expect to see a novella or two, and then in 2019, I'll be releasing book 1 of a spin-off series from the world of The Yellow Hoods. And somewhere along the lines, I'm releasing a non-fiction book on hand-selling books, and need to get another tale in my Cloud 9 world out. If that sounds busy, I'm a man driven and inspired.
Do you have any “side stories” about the characters?
I do, and the first one I ever released was called Snappy and Dashing. It focuses on a secondary character, Richelle Pieman, after the events of Book 2 - Breadcrumb trail. I'm planning on releasing a few more novelettes and novellas in that world over the next two years.

The Wizard Killer
Season 1
by Adam Dreece
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic, Fantasy

"Harry Potter meets Die Hard" - M. Bybee,
"Madmax meets Lord of the Rings" -

A world once at the height of magical technology and social order has collapsed. How and why are the least of the wizard killer’s worries.
Leaning my bloody head against the back of the crashed levitating carriage, I flex my cramped fingers. With a renewed grip on the mana-pistol, I steal a quick breath. The others better wake up fast, otherwise we’re all going to burn.
Written using a binge-TV show model, Season 1 contains 20 pulse-pounding episodes, and is an all new side to best-selling YA author, Adam Dreece.

“…an intense action movie-style romp through a wonderfully detailed fantasy world. I freaking LOVED this story! I loved the cinematic feel, I loved the action scenes, I loved the characters. It is like Harry Potter meets Die Hard” — M Bybee,, 5 Stars

"...imaginative and compelling series that is quite difficult to stop reading. Dreece knows exactly how to build and then neatly tie up each episode, while leaving the reader wanting more.... highly recommended."

The Wizard Killer
Season 2

Kill me with a floating city? You got my attention. But then steal from me and try to burn me alive? You got me thinking.
I think I’m going to find your yigging, walking carcass and introduce it to two friends of mine: pain and vengeance.
By the way, I borrowed a lightning rifle. Don’t worry, I’ll return it… empty.
See you soon,
The Wizard Killer

Season Two kicks everything up a notch with 22 all-new, action-packed episodes!

Adam Dreece kicked off his indie author career with his best-selling steampunk meets fairy tale series, The Yellow Hoods, which struck a chord with kids 9-15 and adults. After four books in the series, the former software architect put out two more young adult books, the post-apocalyptic fantasy book The Wizard Killer – Season One, and then his science fiction novel, The Man of Cloud 9. The first two novels in The Yellow Hoods series, as well as The Wizard Killer, have been finalists for Book of the Year awards from the Independent Author’s Network.
When he’s not working on his next book, Adam can be found giving talks at schools, libraries, associations, as well as comic-con type events like CalgaryExpo and FanExpoCanada on subjects from how to get one’s ideas out and stepping outside of one’s comfort zone, to how to give a successful book signing.
Along the way, Adam has faced many challenges, including working around his Dyslexia (reading and writing disorder), and needing to be ruthless with his time and energy in face of his severe asthma and chronic abdominal scar pain. He’s become an inspiration to some, and a symbol of tenacious hard work to others.
He lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with his wife and children. He is an active online mentor at, and is a busy public speaker, panelist, and author in Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
