Snared: Escape to the Above is the first book in a new middle-grade fantasy adventure series from bestselling author Adam Jay Epstein. Chopping blades, scorpion nests, giant spiderwebs—no one makes traps better than Wily Snare. He has never seen the sun, or blue sky, or even his parents. Wily Snare lives underground, creating traps to keep treasure-seekers away from the gold in an ancient wizard’s dungeon. He spends his days mopping up giant slug slime, avoiding poison darts, and herding undead skeletons. It’s all he knows. Until an unusual band of adventurers—an acrobatic elf, a warrior with a magic arm, and a giant made of moss—successfully defeat Wily’s traps. And they want the ultimate treasure: Wily himself. His skills can help them invade every other dungeon in the kingdom. He might even aid their fight against the Infernal King, whose gearfolk and prisonauts terrorize the land. But for a boy who has never been outside, dungeons aren’t nearly as scary as the world above. Or an evil king who builds the trickiest traps of all . . .

Thanks to a crew of misfit treasure-seekers, Wily Snare has assumed his rightful place as King of Panthasos.

Stalag, mage who once kept him locked away, is amassing an army of stone soldiers to seize the kingdom. Wily’s only hope is to tame a lair beast, a giant creature that’s the only chance against the evil wizard’s army.

First in the Reykjavik Noir Trilogy After a messy divorce, attractive young mother Sonia is struggling to provide for herself and keep custody of her son. With her back to the wall, she resorts to smuggling cocaine into Iceland, and finds herself caught up in a ruthless criminal world. As she desperately looks for a way out of trouble, she must pit her wits against her nemesis, Bragi, a customs officer, whose years of experience frustrate her new and evermore daring strategies. Things become even more complicated when Sonia embarks on a relationship with a woman, Agla. Once a high-level bank executive, Agla is currently being prosecuted in the aftermath of the Icelandic financial crash.

Hardcover : 124 Pages


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The title Snare Book tells its own tale: Jost Nickel's book is exclusively about snare exercises that will improve your hand technique and your general understanding of rhythm at the same time. Additionally, playing these exercises using different subdivisions and time signatures will further strengthen your rhythmic understanding and will make the exercises more interesting and less repetitive. "I usually don't enjoy exercises where I have to play the same thing over and over again." says Jost. "My mind wanders off, and I find it a lot harder to keep practicing because of the lack of variation. As much as I agree that practice is repetition, I also never want to get bored when I practice." Chapter 1 offers a wide range of great warm-up exercises that combine well-known stickings with accentuations, subdivisions, or time signatures that are unusual for these stickings. Additionally, you'll find ostinato exercises to strengthen your independence and interlocking exercises to improve your coordination. "My Snare Book is definitely not your typical rudiments book," adds Jost. "I am confident that the exercises in this book are enjoyable and useful because they offer variations on different levels that will keep you engaged. That makes it easier to play the many repetitions you need to get better." The other chapters take a very systematic approach where Jost takes you step by step through different exercises on double-stroke rolls, flams, multiple strokes, ruffs, inverted double-stroke rolls, paradiddles, and more. Once you have understood the book's conceptual approach, you'll be able to create your own exercises. Simply keep the concepts but change the content, either on your snare drum or on your drum pad. A 12-page insert called "Reading Texts" is also included.
