I have been trying to get my toes back into reading science fiction again. I blame it partially on my sons' sudden interest in reading all of my old science fiction books because we have been watching a lot of the Mandalorian and Star Wars lately. I couldn't help talking about the Thrawn Trilogy and Timothy Zhan's great work. Yeah... I read a lot of Star Wars, Star Trek, and other science fiction in my younger days. Back before it was cool. 😉 So, when an author friend of mine asked me to read her newish series, I saw an opportunity.
I am currently enjoying the first book in the series, Recruit of Talionis, and if you like science fiction, you should check them out. The first novel is on Amazon.
"Forget where you came from. Forget the life you knew. You are now recruits of Talionis!" A teen with a dark past. A secret military force that kidnaps new soldiers. Can she survive as a Recruit of Talionis? America has fallen.
Seventeen-year-old Bria Averton grew up in a small town of survivors near the ruins of Portland, Maine. It’s all she’s ever known — until she’s kidnapped along with hundreds of other teens and brought to the city of Talionis. A city no one knew existed.
The soldiers tell them the intense trainings are for the good of the survivors, and Bria resists being forced into a new life as a recruited soldier. But she soon finds the dangers in the city are greater than she imagined.
Escape is impossible, and Bria fears drowning in the evil of the city… and the guilt from her own past. But can she find hope, even here?
The next novel is releasing soon via Kickstarter.
