When the peaceful kingdom of Fermicia is enslaved by a power-hungry renegade, its only hope lies in a band of unlikely heroes: two children whose musical abilities allow them to harness the power of Ragesong, and their shape-changing guides.

Description:
Jake starts his first day of junior high completely oblivious to the fact that he has been chosen for something incredible. That same afternoon, he learns that he has been marked as one with the power to save an entire kingdom. Through the course of his journey, Jake discovers that his advanced musical abilities are peculiarly connected to a mysterious power known as Ragesong. Joined by a shy, young girl with similar musical talents and two Changelings that hold a fierce loyalty to their homeland and king, Jake must learn to harness this ability in order to survive the dangers of a hostile new world.

Recommendations
“Ragesong is an action-packed thrill ride that is both brilliant and captivating. This story will not let you go until the last page. Simmons has created something magical that teens will call AWESOME!”
-Mikey Brooks, author of The Dream Keeper

“Ragesong: Awakening is a fun adventure that middle school students will easily connect with. The novel is fast-paced and exciting, and the ending leaves you wanting more. Once entered, Fermicia is clearly a place that readers will want to stay.”
-Kaylee Snyder

“Ragesong is aimed towards the young adult audience, yet Mr. Simmons handles them with a patient tone and a bold taste of the medieval world filled with combat, magic, politics, and mystery. Also, as a gamer myself of far more years than I should admit to, it was a nice frolic through memory lane with some memorabilia sprinkled throughout the tale. Lastly, Ragesong leaves you wondering if your worldly talents may have more magic to them than meets the eye.”
