Rebel Lexis

"Rebel Lexis" by Paul Alan

Rebel Lexis: Sci-fi/Dystopian Masterpiece Pits Maverick Spaceship Captain against Seductive, Alluring & Possibly Deadly AI Computer System. Masterfully crafted by Paul Alan, the first volume in the celebrated new ‘Rings of Polaris’ series fuses Science Fiction, dystopian fiction, and action romance – in an adventure giving Arthur C. Clarke a run for his money. Readers are invited to strap in with Captain Jason Bjorn on a mission across the vast wasteland that was once earth. But Bjorn’s white-hot love for a virtual reality companion and the constant sexual advances from his onboard AI computer system are about to cause a distraction that could leave him dead... While nobody will deny science fiction’s timeless popularity, both readers and critics are currently crying out for wholly-unique new narratives that don’t succumb to recycling of the “same old” concepts. Thankfully, Paul Alan has stepped up to the plate with gusto, serving up a compelling new series that melds traditional sci-fi hallmarks with palm-sweating romance. …Sexual encounters with virtual reality companions, that is! ‘Rebel Lexis’ may not follow convention, but Alan’s creation is rapidly building up a following among those who fell in love with Joseph Kosinski’s ‘Oblivion’ and the groundbreaking ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. It’s easy to see why.   Reviews:

"The way you interweave technology in your writing is particularly brilliant. I think the book is ground breaking stuff on so many points...Jason has a sort of anti-hero feel to him. He's a survivor." Kelechi Agu

"The author has created a gripping story with tough, likable characters in Jason and Sophia along with devious villains. This is an intriguing scifi adventure, and I’ll be watching for the next installment." Lilly

Rise of the Reaper

"Rise of the Reaper" by Lorna Reid

Can you change fate? Or does striving to avoid it merely drive you into its arms? Strange dreams come to Danny Stone since the day his mother vanished, years ago. The burning pain of her disappearance still consumes him – as does his need for answers. When he and his friends discover the secret their parents have hidden – a fragmented, broken world of magic, blades, and blood – their lives change forever. Their quest for answers takes a terrifying turn when the return of an ancient evil threatens not only those they love, but the Broken Lands themselves. With lives at risk, their journey for truth turns into a race against time to change fate. Their desperate journey takes them from the winding streets of the grand city and on a tumultuous voyage through the cavernous heart of the Black Pass, where the darkness brushes the very fringes of the soul. But will it all be for nothing? Rise of the Reaper is the first book in an exciting new fantasy adventure series.
