From the Author
"Kinetic" focuses around five youths that are born with amazing kinetic abilities due to an intergalactic war that is being waged light years away. The story mainly follows Alexander Carter, an adolescent from Houston, Texas. Alex is just an average teenager trying to make it through high school when life takes a turn for the fantastic and the bizarre. One night, he finds an alien named Shyra in his bedroom. She tells him that Earth is threatened by the Zenakuu, a planet originally known for traveling to other planets to mine resources.
Unfortunately the Zenakuu traveled to an uncharted planet and began to drill. They unearthed a visceral species of insect like parasites that can consume whole civilizations in mere days. In order to save the galaxy from this threat the captain of the ship initiated the self destruct which would systematically blow up the entire planet. He succeeded in doing so, but chunks of the planet were sent hurling back towards their home world. Once there, the monstrous insects went to work eating everyone and everything in sight.
The planet sent out a distress call to their sister planet Kalryn, but after weighing out the danger, they decided not to help. Years after Zenakuu was presumed dead from receiving no aid, they attacked and invaded their sister planet Kalryn. By the skin of their teeth the Kalrynians were able to fend them off, but the Zenakuu swore they would have their revenge, each time invading other planets, and bringing their newly enslaved races to join the fray. Finally, Kalryn had enough, and the council decided to recruit other worlds to help fight as well. They send a guide to Earth to unlock and train teenagers to use kinetic energy such as Pyro, Electro, Aero, Hydro, and Geo kinesis.
Now Zenakuu has their sights on Earth, Shyra tells Alex that she has come to train gifted individuals, known as Kinetics, to guard the Earth from the Zenakuu threat. He and a handful of teens are the planet's last hope of survival. She takes Alex to her ship, where he trains to be one of the few elite superheroes with the power to fight the aliens who have come to Earth fully intending to win a brutal intergalactic war.

About the Author
Gregory "Herro" Raymond grew up in New Jersey until graduating from high school. After that, he lived in Florida for four years where he attended college, earning a degree in graphic design and fine arts. He then came up with the concept for "Kinetic," in 2003, where it went by a different name. Though falling on hard times financially he spent the next several years picking himself back up, and building the story of "Kinetic."
Upon completing college he moved back to New Jersey to be around friends and family. There he landed a job in optometry and selling cars to make ends meet. That is where he first met Laz Matech. The two became good friends, and together revamped "Kinetic," into the powerhouse, nail-biting novel it is today.
Laz Matech has lived his life in New Jersey, mostly in a small town known as South River. He always found writing interesting but not the reading side of literature as much. He attended a Vocational and Technical school for High School where he studied carpentry and cabinet making.
After High School he decided not to attend college, or pursue his talents in the carpentry field, but kept busy with several part-time jobs before getting into the car industry where he sold vehicles alongside Gregory "Herro" Raymond. The two spent the next two years rigorously coming together to co-write the action-pack romance, "Kinetic."
They specialize in creative writing, science fiction, and fantasy. Collectively, they have more than ten years of writing experience. The book "Kinetic: The First Alliance is the first published story from these up and coming authors, who are quickly on their rise to the top.
