I'm JK Noble, YA Fantasy Author and Artist.
It was my utmost dream to bring my story to life, for an utmost experience for the readers and fans. This is the first installment of Hale: The Rise of the Griffins, the audiobook.
Now you can unlock the world of Malphora with just your ears, or if you prefer, you may read along with the scrolling text. But no audiobook is fully brought to life without some mood music and simultaneous sound effects! After all, it should feel as though you are experiencing a mental film!
For those of you who are new to the world of HALE, here is a summary:
After a desperate escape attempt from his kidnapper, sixteen-year-old Hale is thrust into the brutal world of magic that his sister had tried to protect him from. Here, in the violent Land of Griffins, Hale learns he is anything but normal. He is in fact a griffin who has pretty amazing talents. As Hale grows close to the Griffin Leader, Bayo, he can't deny their connection. However, Hale is unaware of the dark plans Bayo has in store for him....as well as who they truly are to one another. In Hale: The Rise of the Griffins, readers discover a diverse fantasy world with four unique nations and cultures.
The novel is broken into short stories that follow a different set in the cast bringing the reader into fun adventures in every chapter. This unique magic system is unlike anything in fantasy literature today. Hale: The Rise of the Griffins is an anti-chosen-one story that addresses loss, manipulation, good and bad family relationships, finding one’s path, and dealing with one’s mistakes.
Chanticleer Reviews rated Hale: The Rise of the Griffins as a middle-grade novel. It is perfect for your young ones, 12 years of age and up, as well as a fun read for you adults!
In this clip, we being the story with the Prologue. In this short story taking place three hundred years ago, we get a sneak peek at how the Griffin Elders obtained power by stealing the grandest magical treasure from a neighboring kingdom called Bimmorus.
You get to learn about some of their superpowers, and about some awesome magical weapons and objects just in the first pages! This audio will be available on Spotify and other audiobook platforms. HALE: The Rise of the Griffins is available on all platforms such as Google Books, Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indigo, etc!
