ANDERSON, Ind. — Warner Press is proud to announce that its youth fantasy fiction novel “Hunter Brown and the Eye of Ends” by the Miller Brothers has been awarded a bronze medal in the 2011 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards in the category of Pre-Teen Fiction – Fantasy. With this award, all three books in The Codebearers™ Series now have received bronze medals in this category in the Moonbeam Awards.
“Hunter Brown and the Eye of Ends” continues the story of teenager Hunter Brown that began in “Hunter Brown and the Secret of the Shadow” and “Hunter Brown and the Consuming Fire.” In this final book of The Codebearers™ Series, Hunter Brown finds that his memory is gone. Now he must fight to piece together the growing puzzle of his past under the constant surveillance of an intimidating detective, who isn’t all that he seems. But what begins as a harmless search for memories quickly leads Hunter into a deadly hunt for his missing father and a lost relic, the Eye of Ends, said to predict the end of the Author’s story.
The Miller Brothers, Christopher and Allan, combine their unique skills as authors and animators to produce stories of faith and fun for families everywhere. In addition to “Hunter Brown and the Eye of Ends, their works include additional novels in “The Codebearers Series™” and the “Heroes of Promise™” series, published by Warner Press. Growing up behind the shelves of their parents’ Christian bookstore, the Miller Brothers learned first-hand the value of faith-based stories. Founders of Lumination Studios, they live in Seattle, Wash. with their families.
