Alien Moon (Starlight Age Series Book 1): for fans of Veronica Roth, Orson Scott Card, Suzanne Collins, Marie Lu

15

Helia dreams of restoring Earth so humans can once again flourish beyond the walls of Haven, the last remaining city on a planet decimated by centuries of pollution and abuse. It'd also be nice to not have to hide her relationship with alien Kalo, who arrived years ago with his people and an offer to help humans in their fight for survival. But the human-alien partnership is crumbling. Humans are being detained. People are starting to disappear. Helia's world, where humans balance on the edge of extinction, is becoming even more perilous.

When the alien leader imprisons Helia's mother on a false charge, Helia begins to uncover the conspiracy behind the aliens' presence on Earth. Now, she must join forces with alien rebels and put into motion her own secret invention--and it's humanity's last hope. If she succeeds, humans have a chance at survival and she has a chance at love. If she fails, the dwindling human race dies out in slavery.

Humans on the verge of extinction. Aliens who claim they've come to help. Perfect for fans of Ender's Game, Divergent, Legend, and The 5th Wave!

NOTE: This is an updated and re-titled edition of the book previously published as Helia's Shadow Part One (Starlight Age Series Book 1).

Humans on the verge of extinction. Aliens who claim they've come to help. Perfect for fans of Ender's Game, Divergent, Legend, and The 5th Wave!

Rebel Earth picks up right where Alien Moon ended, with Helia trapped in a transporter on the way to the lunar prison. When she gets there, she discovers that the rumors Gordon heard were true—there are alien cannibals on the moon. It’s more horrific and dangerous than anything she ever imagined. She must survive long enough to figure out how to escape back to Earth, find Kalo and the rebels, and take down Reku before he enslaves the last surviving humans.

NOTE: This is the updated, re-titled edition of the book previously published as Helia's Shadow Part Two (Starlight Age Series Book 2).

Reviews for Helia's Shadow Part One:

"[A]n amazing story filled with adventure and intrigue.... so full of action and emotions that you cannot help but be captivated. I highly recommend Helia's Shadow Part One to anyone who liked Divergent or The Hunger Games. Helia reminds me of strong heroines like Tris (Divergent) and Katniss (The Hunger Games), but she is her own amazing character." –Ivey Byrd (The Hopeless Reader review blog) 

"Anyone who liked The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, Enclave by Ann Aguirre, or Legend by Marie Lu will want to read Helia's Shadow." –Julie B.

"Helia's Shadow is a breath of fresh air that we all need.... recently every science fiction book I have read has been similar, with the same story lines and plot twists. Helia's Shadow however was different.... kept me up till dawn, on the edge of my seat and craving more of this incredible story." –Kat Silver (Kat Silver review blog)

"It captured my attention from the first chapter and within a few hours I was already halfway through it. It almost pained me to set the book down, that's how good it is." –Ashley (Hyper Ashley review blog

A small town full of secrets. A coming darkness. Teenagers with supernatural abilities. Think you know the story?

Think again.

As Summer ends, the students at Silverwood High are getting ready to go back to school and resume their normal, everyday lives. Too bad "normal" is no longer an option.

When these teens get their very first tastes of what destiny has in store, will they embrace that destiny... or flee from it? Will they be selfless... or ruthless? Will they master their abilities... or will their abilities master them?

This is their awakening, the first step of an epic journey. But it's only the beginning of something bigger than they could ever imagine.

Four teenagers. One town.

Four authors. One story.

The sleepy little town of Silverwood is about to wake up.
