Joshua Lisec is an adventure-thriller novelist and author of THE PHOENIX REICH, first installment of the Max Meyers Adventure Series, as well as THE COMPASS, its short story prequel.

Joshua’s storytelling takes readers on extraordinary quests into the conspiracies and underworlds that haunt history. Told through the perspectives of relatable characters and interspersed with wit and insight, his epic novels illuminate the forgotten forces that lurk amongst us, forces that can only be confronted by those who struggle to rise from mediocre lives and embrace destinies that are nothing less than terribly wonderful.
