“I have a 10 year old son who is an avid reader!! He loves books, (but he’s picky too) he loved Harry Potter and Percy Jackson. He was so excited to read the 2nd book in this series! When I presented him the first book he was not sure he would like it but changed his mind quickly, then when I heard about the 2nd book being released he almost jumped out of his chair! (no exaggeration) He is anxiously awaiting the 3rd book! I would say that any child who enjoys fantasy/adventure books should read this series! It is a well written page turner! It’s a fun story that adults can even enjoy the storyline without getting bored! According to my son, ‘every kid should read this series’. ” ~ 5-Star review from SavyGreenSaver, Amazon “I loved this book, even as an adult reading it. I was completely sucked into the plot and was constantly finding myself staying up “just a little longer” to read one more chapter. Different twists and turns in the book have you constantly guessing who is behind what and who Zak and Zoe can trust. I could definitely see myself being involved in this series as a middle schooler considering how much I enjoyed it even now. Another thing I liked about it is if you missed the first book, you could still follow along with this one and not be lost.” ~ 5-Star review from Staci, Amazon “Lars Guignard has done a fabulous job with this series. I loved the `Ghost Leopard’ & love this one even more. For late-elementary to middle school age readers, you can’t beat this series. It’s fun and fast-paced. Even my picky fifth grader enjoyed every page. There are bits of magic thrown in keep the action exciting. Mr. Guignard has a brilliant imagination & readers are blessed that he’s chosen to use it for YA fiction. If you’ve yet to read the first installment in this series, do yourself a favor and read these books back to back. Don’t limit it just to kids! Adults will have a blast reading these too!” ~ 5-Star review from Liz Terek, Amazon

“WARNING!!! It's the best!”

I hope that Lars Guignard! Makes more to come! I think that it is the best for other kids that love fantasy book's !! Hope you love it too!!

“Great Book for Tweens”

My 10 year old grand daughter loved this book. She could hardly put it down. She hopes it turns into a series.

“Read this!”

I thought it was very interesting and also very funny. Me and my brother both really enjoyed it. Compared to other books I've read, it had way more details and I liked how it was in India because I've never been there. The yogi way was cool. I will read it a second time for sure.

“An Exciting Adventure!”

I would highly recommend this fast-paced page turner for all kids who like stories that feature magic, mystery, and adventure in an exotic location. Guignard's vivid descriptions of India -- both the chaotic city scenes and the trip through the majestic Himalayas -- bring the beauty of the country alive to young readers. His main characters, Zoe and Zac, are appealing and well drawn. It's fun to watch this pair of unlikely allies form a friendship as they race against time to rescue a supernatural creature from a villain out of ancient Indian mythology -- and discover their own hidden potential in the process.

Q&A with Lars Guignard: Blown Circuit

Q: How is Blown Circuit different from Lethal Circuit? Lars: For one thing it’s written from the first person perspective. That lets us see more of Michael Chase, the main character. Who is he? What does he want? Why is he on the journey? Not only does the first person provide the reader with more […]

Q&A with Lars Guignard: Lethal Circuit

Q: What’s Lethal Circuit about? Lars: Backpackers, spies, and saving the world.

Q: Is that it? Lars: Basically. I suppose the slightly longer answer is that it’s about a backpacker who gets caught up in a global conspiracy while searching for his missing father in China. The protagonist’s life quickly becomes muddled in the world […]

Backpacker Inspiration

Why China?

Why did I set my thriller Lethal Circuit in China? China is always in the news these days. It’s supposed to bail out the world economy. It’s where all the jobs went. It’s eclipsed the USA as a superpower. Every headline you read is China, China, China. So why did I set Lethal […]


Done. I’m finally finished writing Blown Circuit, the sequel to Lethal Circuit. Firstly, I’d like to thank all you readers out there who made Lethal Circuit such a success. Without you guys I would never have made it through writing the second book in the Michael Chase series. Your encouragement was invaluable. I guess what […]


I was quoted in another article on ebooks. This one had the headline that ebooks are throwing publishers for a loop. Apparently as a result of the ebook revolution some publishers (Canadian ones at least) are worried about falling revenues. I’m not, and to prove it I’m giving my thriller, Lethal Circuit, away FREE for […]
