This review is from: AEGIS INCURSION (Teen/YA - Action Adventure, Fantasy) (The Aegis League Series Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
This young Author continues to impress and build her characters and her story lines further out into the world to encompass issues and themes that can resonate more and more. These books become the ones that you recommend and pass on to the next gen ...more
I have read both books now. And the GOOD fight will continue in book number three. This is a good clean book, for ALL ages. There is mystery, of what is going on, what is coming next. There is action, of how the kids will handle the bad guys. It also makes you think about what could happen to the world if things were to happen the way it does in the book. And what kind of person would you be, if it did. I would recommend this book.
I have to start by saying that I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. I have no trouble with that because this book is amazing!! The story line draws the reader in and is terrifying that the events could take place. The Five work so well together and are great friends as well as a team. I can NOT wait for the next installment. Excellent book.
Action heroes are not just adults any more. If we like all the adult heroes we should love these kids. Using powers that they developed by hard work and trial they face and odds and win. A great story and waiting for the next book.
Wow! What an incredibly imaginative story…very scientific in theory, I'm wondering if the author has some kind of background in physics or something? If not, she surly did her research, just the little nanomites alone are something else. And then of course there's all the supernatural excitement included, so this makes ...more
This book is well thought out and well written. Loved every minute of it. It was also insightful in terms of learning about advanced technology and its scary to think how that could be used against human existence. Aegis Incursion kept me on the edge of my seat. It was filled with many nail-biting moments and was action packed that I wish it was a movie I'm watching. Perhaps one day it will be! Besides the action and suspens ...more
Readers, note that you don't need to have read the first Aegis League novel to fully appreciate this one - this story does entirely stand alone. While this may be frustrating for followers of the series, it does allow newcomers to be rapidly brought up to speed.
I thought that this was a definite improvement on the first book. The story flowed a lot better, reintroducing the principle five characters and their abilities while interspersing their development with some ve ...more
In neat, short, well-paced chapters, we are introduced to the main ensemble cast consisting of five teenagers: the Geeky Aari, the Always-Hungry Kody, the Daring Jag, the Touchy Tegan, and the Observing Maria ...more
Too often the second book in a series falls down, but not so in this case!
Aegis Incursion is a perfect example of what a sequel should be - expanding on the story line, developing more depth in the characters and an ending that leaves you anxious for book three to hit the shelves.
I, for one, can't wait to see where she goes next. ...more

Overall, this is not my genre but I am so glad I stepped outside of my "genre box" with the first book in the series, AEGIS RISING, and now the second book, AEGIS INCURSION. This author has an amazingly imaginative mind! The characters are well-developed; as a reader you care about them. There's a fair amount of science and techno geek knowledge in order to know how to pull off some of these ideas. The reader doesn't require the knowledge though, as it is explained in ...more
I'm not a great fan of stories about superpowers; neither am I a young adult. However, I really enjoyed this book!
I gave the first book in this series 5 stars, although I felt slightly unsure and would have chosen to give it 9/10 if that were possible - however, this one gets a resounding 10, or 5 on Amazon's system. Perhaps it is because the characters seem more developed - the 5 young people seem to have grown up a bit, and I like the way the story moved around th ...more
This novel brings together real caring on the part of five youngsters who have to grow up too soon in a turbulent world fraught with danger. Friends and foes with strong ideas of what better should be, fight out their ideals. Literally. There is a dash of mystery and fantasy but the goodness comes through even though evil lurks. Hard to put it down even though it was targeted for younger readers than me. Enjoyable read.
The Chosen are called back into service when something starts happening to crops around the world. They meet a Sentry who mentors them and gets them out of the scrapes they get into. They have quite a surprise when their abilities become stronger and they discover what is happening to the crops.
A well-written story with plenty of action, sacrifice, and mystery. I am already reading the next one.
I felt like there wasn't so much backstory, which was actually nice. The pace flowed fairly well through out the book, but near the end, it did begin dragging a bit. There was a small plot twist that surprised me near the beginning, threw me off kilter slightly, but I see why the author did it the way she did. ...more
