'Max Tilt: 80 Days Or Die' By Peter Lerangis Cover Reveal And Book Publication Details

Inspired by the great works of Jules Verne, Peter Lerangis's new series called Max Tilt is about to get even more exciting with the upcoming second book titled Max Tilt: 80 Days or Die. If the first book, Max Tilt: Fire the Depths, was loosely inspired by Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, this new one will draw inspiration from Around the World in Eighty Days.

In fact the cover has been unveiled and it features an iconic hot air balloon (albeit not the same exact one) featured in Jules Verne's Science Fiction/heist novel. The release date has been set as well and I am glad to say that we don't have to wait a year before we can know that fate of Max Tilt, cousin Alex and company.

Check out the cover of Max Tilt: 80 Days or Die by Peter Lerangis.

Max Tilt: 80 Days or Die by Peter Lerangis

Synopsis

The New York Times bestselling author of the Seven Wonders series and of books in the 39 Clues series, Peter Lerangis, brings us the hair-raising, edge-of-your-seat second installment of the Max Tilt trilogy.

When thirteen-year-old Max Tilt stumbled across his great-great-great-grandfather Jules Verne’s unfinished, unpublished manuscript, The Lost Treasures, he thought he had the answer to all his problems, but nothing in life is ever that easy. With his mom’s illness getting worse again, Max needs to figure out a way to save his family—now more than ever.

So Max and his cousin Alex revisit The Lost Treasures, and they find a clue that just might be the key to a cure. It’s the story of Verne’s seemingly impossible recovery from a near-fatal gunshot wound. Somehow, after being shot, Verne didn’t just survive, he thrived. And the book hints that he was only able to do so after collecting magical healing elements that he’d saved from a race around the world.

Piecing together hints from Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days and his lost manuscript, Max and Alex realize there’s a way to save Max’s mom if they’re daring enough to try.

It’s a race against time in the second installment of the action-packed adventure series from master storyteller and New York Times bestselling author Peter Lerangis.

Max Tilt: 80 Days or Die by Peter Lerangis will be released on May 8, 2018.
