Strike: The Hero From The Sky (The Strike Series, Book 1)

by Charlie Wood

Book One of the Strike Series

Tobin Lloyd’s life is perfect: he’s a senior at Bridgton High, he’s one of the funniest kids in school, and his only worry is whether or not his latest prank is going to result in yet another detention.

But when he wakes up in the world of Capricious, a place where superheroes are real and attacks by super-villains are just another hassle of living in the city, all of that changes. Suddenly, Tobin’s last year of high school is not going as he expected.

Far from home and pretty sure he’s gone insane, Tobin must join a strange group of companions (including a beer-drinking dog and a genius, three-foot-tall robot) as he desperately tries to find a way back to Earth. However, that may be even harder than Tobin knows: a mysterious super-villain named Vincent Harris has big plans for the planet Earth…and Tobin is the only person standing in his way.

A carefree, C-student class clown is the world’s last hope? Yikes.

Full of action and humor, STRIKE: THE HERO FROM THE SKY is the perfect novel for anyone who loves a good adventure.

Book One: Emergence

War has come to our galaxy.

The Federation of United Planets, a galactic republic, has been invaded by the brutal alien race called the Krai’kesh. 
Using organic ships and strange new weapons they sweep through all resistance. They show no mercy or remorse and cannot be negotiated with.
Veteran Federation captain Martin Rigsby, stationed at the edge of the galaxy, must lead his fleet in a desparate bid to stop the alien invaders, while a small band of magical heroes makes adesparate last stand.

Book Two: Eclipse 
The Federation burns at the hand of the Krai’kesh.

Captain Martin Rigsby and his fleet, in the midst of a war for human survival, charged with defending the outer rim of the United Federation of Planets and thus the whole Federation, is about to be eclipsed by overwhelming odds and new alien weapons. 

A ruthless Krai’kesh fleet will stop at nothing to crush Tar Ebon’s only nearby fleet. Can they survive?

Elsewhere, heroes of the Federation must use every tool at their disposal, from magic to espionage, to stop a devious Krai’kesh plot beyond the battlefield.

Book Three: Ruin

The Federation lies on the brink of ruin.

The alien invaders, known as the Krai’kesh, are on the verge of victory. 

Using advanced alien technology and a ruthless strategy they deliver blow after blow to the Federation.

Adding insult to injury, the Federation is betrayed from within by the Cult of Rae, adherents to the Krai’kesh god-emperor.

Besieged on two fronts, Admiral Martin Rigsby and his fleet struggle to hold the line against both Krai’kesh and traitor fleets.
 
Meanwhile, heroes of the Federation, both magical and mundane, try to stop conspiracies elsewhere in the galaxy.

The Krai’kesh and their allies will not rest until their god-emperor’s will is done and the Federation is destroyed. 

Now is the hour for the Federation’s greatest heroes to rise…or fall. All humanity is counting on them.

Game Plan

by Natalie Corbett Sampson

“Poignant, well-paced and compassionate, Game Plan is an achingly real look at how two families cope when life doesn’t go as planned.” â?? Tish Cohen, bestselling author of The Truth About Delilah Blue and Inside Out Girl.

Just because the play goes wrong, doesn’t mean you quit the game.

Ella Parker seems to have everything: great friends, an awesome family and a star position on her high school basketball team. The only thing missing from her life is a boyfriend. That changes once she catches the eye of Sam Cleveland. With Sam by her side Ella has it all. When a drunken night results in an unwanted pregnancy, her perfect life is turned upside down and she’s faced with an impossible decision.

Katherine Frayne has always wanted to be a mother. But with the last results of her in vitro fertilization pointing to no chance of a baby, her hopes are dashed. Then her husband Danny suggests they adopt. At first Kat is resistant, but she soon warms to the idea.

Ella and Katherine must navigate their lives amidst tough decisions, the consequences of which not only affect them but those they love the most.
