Before he knew about the war, sixteen-year-old Jack Stryder lived a predictable life. Apart from his nomadic lifestyle and bond with his father, nothing separated him from other kids at school. All of that changes one day, when Jack is attacked in his own high-school and catapulted into a world of mystery and violence. Soon, Jack learns he is a part of an ancient lineage of time-travelers tasked to saving history. In a shadow war to save humanity, Jack must join forces with an organization named the Order the Flame to defend history from their adversaries - the One World Society. Along the way, Jack learns he is a part of a destiny that will change everything about time travel, and more importantly, history forever.

Mitchell Stevens Granger was born in Chicago, Illinois to Ed Granger and Shannen Poulos. Growing up, Granger was an avid tennis player and philanthropist- starting his own non-profit in Chicago. At the age of 24, after graduating from the University of Illinois- Chicago, Granger released his first novel, Jack Stryder and the Lost Library of Alexandria. His inspirations behind his work are his father Ed, his late grandfather David, and the novels he read as a child. He continues to write and plans to release more works soon.
