AT THE PRECIPICE of BATTLE ON THE BRINK of EXTINCTION UPON THE SLOPES of CUMORAH Join our time-traveling heroes from the Tennis Shoes Adventure Series as they stand ready to take part in one of the most intense, supercharged, and harrowing contests in all of Book of Mormon history. Surrounded by more than a million Lamanites and Gadianton robbers, Joshua, Harry, Apollus, Meagan, Garth, Steffanie, and many other favorite Tennis Shoes characters brace themselves with the Nephite nation for the promised day of violence and thunder. For four long years, the prophet Mormon has guided his people into making the Hill Cumorah an impregnable fortress against any adversary, but conflict and corruption among the Nephites threatens to undermine all of Mormon’s efforts and make everyone-including our characters-vulnerable for disaster. Drums of Desolation is a novel of herculean ambition, serving as a sequel not only for Tennis Shoes Adventure Series: Sorcerers and Seers, but also for Passage to Zarahemla and Escape from Zarahemla, combining characters and struggles from both of Chris Heimerdinger’s epic series of Book of Mormon adventures. Featuring nail-biting suspense and nonstop action, Drums of Desolation stands as one of the most important fictional studies ever undertaken of the most climactic and heartbreaking episode in the Book of Mormon. Fasten up for the thrill ride of your life-an adventure that will carry you from the depths of despair to the glorious triumphs of the human spirit in the midst of one of the most complex and sinister centuries ever experienced in the New World. DESTRUCTION IS UNAVOIDABLE! SURVIVAL IS PARAMOUNT!
