ST-Book1-CovFrnt-72dpiWho knows what hidden mysteries bubble beneath the inner workings of a secret society?

Shh!

Secret society members make blood oaths to take their secrets to the grave.

The Illuminati is one such oblique organization. Dating back to 1775, the Bavarian Illuminati has an alluring connection to several of our nation’s founders.

How about  National Treasure ? If you’ve seen this gripping adventure film, you’ve learned all about the tight-lipped Free Masons.

Welcome to Riverrun Academy, a very ordinary Jr Sr High School, steeped in history, perched high above the Hudson River 30 miles north of Manhattan. It’s here where a small group of students find a secret letter written by a founding father and, inspired by the cryptic message, form a secret society.

Little did they know their pact would have far-reaching implications on their lives and the world around them.

Follow the story of the Secret Tortoise as our group of protagonists starts small and builds their influence until they wield power and authority throughout Riverrun and even outside its age-old walls.
In this series, characters will grow through their decisions as both individuals and parts of the secret society. The Secret Tortoise books touch on more than just the school’s power structure–such as sports, music, and performance arts. The real focus is on the political workings of Riverrun and the Machiavellian schemes of the major characters. Allegiances will take shape and fall apart, rivalries will form and burn intensely, and old enemies will become new friends.
The Secret Tortoise is for readers both young and old alike.

Fans of the the blockbuster Harry Potter series will love the intrigue of the setting and conceptual possibilities. The political schemes and maneuverings are reminiscent of other shows currently streaming on popular sites. But what the Secret Tortoise books really bring are unique characters who have stories to tell that anyone can relate to. So join Marco, Bennet, Kaleigh, Isabella, Jaquin and others on their epic journey that will teach them more about life than their schoolwork ever could.
