Lisa Poché Calhoun is the author of the exciting survival fiction novel "Superflare: The Fortunate Ones." Prior to writing the book, she once worked in front of the camera in the film industry. Attracted by life behind the scenes, she became a location scout and worked on productions from commercials to feature films, including "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, 1 and 2." She worked her way up and by the time and injury sidelined her, she had been the Location Manager on feature films. Between movies she had written for newspapers and magazines and realized she now had the spare time a novel would demand. Thanks to the success of the novel and request for sequels from her readers, she is focused on writing the next installment of Superflare.
Her thirst for knowledge keeps her reading and researching subjects that interest her. As her understanding of the subjects covered in "Superflare: The Fortunate Ones" grew, she felt compelled to write the book. She chose survival fiction as her genre and wrote in a style that submerges her readers into the story. She lets the characters tell the readers about themselves.
Lisa and her husband John make their home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and enjoy time spent with their family, their cat and dog. They have two retired show horses she calls their "pasture ornaments." They live in the city, but she grew up on a sugarcane farm and often points out that she's a country girl at heart.
John is on the front lines in New York City. The odds may be stacked against him, but his best friend, Sam, has inexplicably developed a Legacy despite being human—and he isn’t the only one. As the pair tracks down Five and Nine amidst the chaos, they encounter another teen with powers. Whether she is a friend or a foe, however, remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, Six, Marina, and Adam are trapped in Mexico. They fought their way into the Sanctuary and were able to awaken the force hidden within, but they don’t have any way to reach the others…and the Mogs are coming for them in full force.
The Garde are stretched thin. Their only shot at saving the world is to eliminate the Mogadorian leader once and for all—but his fate is now irrevocably tied with Ella’s. The Garde can’t destroy one without the other. And if they can’t find another way to stop the Mogs, humanity will suffer the same fate as the Loric: annihilation.
This epic, action-packed science fiction series is perfect for fans of the Fifth Wave series by Rick Yancey, the Maze Runner series by James Dashner, and Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game.
The Garde have suffered an unbearable loss. Number Five has betrayed them. Eight is gone forever. Ella has been kidnapped. The others are now scattered.
In Chicago, John makes the unlikeliest of allies: a Mogadorian named Adam, who has switched sides. Adam knows the Mogs secrets, and he knows where to hit them: their command base near Washington, DC. But during the assault, John learns he and the Garde might be too late. The Mogadorians have commenced their ultimate invasion plans.
Meanwhile, Six, Nine, and Marina make their way through the Florida Everglades, hot on the trail of the traitorous Five. With the development of a new Legacy, Marina finally has the power to fight back—if her thirst for revenge doesn't consume her first. The Garde may be broken and divided once more, but they will not be defeated. As long as one still stands, the battle for Earth's survival is not lost.
Michael Bay, director of Transformers, raved: “Number Four is a hero for this generation.” This epic young adult series is perfect for fans of action-packed science fiction like The Fifth Wave series by Rick Yancey, The Maze Runner series by James Dashner, and Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game.
