Editorial Reviews


"Astonishingly imaginative and thoughtful...the book should be read both quickly and slowly - quickly in order to enjoy the rapid sledding of the plot and slowly to mull characters and ideas. Aegis Rising sets a festive narrative table and makes the reader eagerly anticipate a sequel." ~ Samuel F. Pickering, Professor Emeritus of English, University of Connecticut & Inspiration for Robin Williams' character in the Academy Award winning movie, Dead Poet's Society ~

"An extraordinary effort...all the more amazing given the author's age. I was especially gratified by the way she used the teen protagonists' close relationships as the backdrop against which the dramatic events in Aegis Rising unfolded, without having 'love interest' or other typical teen story devices hijack the underlying theme of the book. She's a real talent!" ~ Red Grammer - Grammy Nominated, Multi- Award Winning Songwriter & Producer ~

A title like this is screaming for adaptation as a successful film... ~The US Review of Books~

THRILLING!...grips onto the reader and never lets go! ~Feathered Quill Book Reviews~

FIVE STARS. Unique and compelling. Delivers on every level..perhaps the best sci-fi adventure I have read all year." ~Kathryn Bennett, Readers' Favorite Reviews~

Takes you on an intriguing ride through mysterious forests and mist-covered mountains to corporate boardrooms and global schemes. Prepare to be swept away on a breathtaking journey!" ~Honore Gbedze, SAGE Foundation~

From the Author

Dear Reader,

Thank you for browsing the Aegis Rising page.

Aegis Rising tells the story of the survivors of an ancient civilization who live secretly in a hidden valley in northern Canada, awaiting the 'chosen ones' from their prophecy, and a mysterious corporation with a global reach led by a shadowy figure who has a dystopian vision for the planet. The two worlds are about to collide and five teenage friends find themselves cast into the middle of this devastating conflict.

Although categorized as a Young Adult novel, Aegis Rising seems to appeal to a broad age group. It is a classic good versus evil story with a modern twist to it. As one reader put it, "Aegis Rising is a unique and compelling novel that combines the youthful camaraderie of the Percy Jackson series with the relentless action of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt adventures and weaves it through a dystopian backdrop of the Hunger Games trilogy."

While it is an honor to be compared to such iconic authors, I have always imagined Aegis Rising to be a unique read for my readers. I am thrilled and thankful for the amazing response that the novel has received from readers across the globe. I am pleased to announce that book two, Aegis Incursion, is now available exclusively on Amazon.

I hope that you will find the intrigue and adventure in the world of Aegis well worth your time. I love to hear from my readers and always make time to respond personally. You can reach me at  Feel free to sign up as an Aegis Insider at to receive updates on release dates for new books and exclusive giveaways.
Here's to your discovery of books that engage, entertain and enlighten!

More About the Author

S.S.Segran spent a good chunk of her childhood exploring the enchanted forest of a million tales in the mystical land of books. In her early teens, she began crafting intriguing new worlds and conjuring up characters who came alive with the flick of her wand... err... pen.

When not devouring a book or writing one, S.S.Segran can be found standing behind the cauldron of life, stirring a potion made up of chores, parkour, drawing, horseback riding and--having enjoyed jumping off a perfectly fine airplane at fifteen thousand feet - perhaps skydiving.

Aegis Rising by S.S. Segran is the first book in the Aegis League Series. This is a brilliantly written sci-fi adventure for young adults. It’s a story about the struggle between good and evil. Five teenagers on a small plane get caught up in a storm - Mariah, Kody, Aari, Tegan and Jag. Both engines are irreparably damaged and the plane crashes in a remote area. The mysterious inhabitants help them recover. They discover this tribe has advanced and extraordinary capabilities e.g. healing skills, linguistic abilities,etc. The tribe believes they are the five chosen ones that have come to fulfill an ancient prophecy. In the prophecy they are to stand against a secretive global alliance with malevolent intentions. As the action-packed plot unfolds, we discover it is their destiny. Fantastic read, would definitely recommend!

I purchased kindles for my twin granddaughters and started the tedious process of loading books in them. I came across this one and as per my agreement with their parents. I began to read in order to fulfill my commitment to screen, each and every book, I load up. When I found AEGIS RISING I was intrigued, with what I read on the flap,

It met all the criteria set out for a book that my girl had listed that they liked. Fantasy check, ensemble cast of diverse characters check, major adventure check, gripping plot line check and finally dialogue that isn't hokey, check.
So far so good way to go YaYa scanned it quickly for inappropriate content None, situations too advance for 13 None, and the big one characters dealing with advanced life situations None. Those facts qualified it for a read here is what I discovered. This book is extremely well written; the characters are very realistic and seem to have natural, realistic personality traits and foibles. The dynamic between the friends is not a bit forced it flows as if they have been friends for, well years LOL.

The pace is fast and to be frank while there was a brief moment or two of drag, overall the story held my attention and then some. The story did not get bogged down by the complicated plot nor did I get lost in a maze of characters. Each character was detailed with a history and a soul. In an abstract way it reminded me of the Breakfast Club only more interesting and much better locales than the school library or cafeteria. I feel as if I have found a book that is quality writing. The great part is this is going to be a series and there will be more.

The multiple story lines would be a challenge for any writer never mind a first time author who interestingly enough is a teenager herself.

Easily my favorite book in a long time. I could see this becoming a movie. Riveting story filled with twists and turns that will keep you reading. I read this book in almost one sitting, and it's not short. I had to be pulled away from it to go out to dinner. Just had to see what happened next!

Its got the classic Joseph Campbell feel of good versus evil with heroes and villains. Characters are well written and interesting. Plot is compelling and keeps you glued to the pages. It's written from three perspectives. A group of teenagers, a mysterious hybrid race of people led by their Elders and a dark shadowy organization.

This book is an excellent read for both young adults and adults alike. Well written and the scenes are beautiful . Pulls you into the moment. Add this author to your watch list. Looking forward to more!

This action-adventure sci-fi novel is an amazing read. It's unique, it's action-packed, it's plot-driven, it's got engaging characters, it's set in the real world yet feels magical, in short it's BIG! S.S.Segran has written a novel that is going to create some major waves in the YA scene! The novel follows the incredible adventure of five teenagers after their plane is struck by lightning and crashes in a remote northern forest. The thrilling plot unveils great characters with unique attributes who are forced to grow through a life-changing journey filled with danger and amazing possibilities. This is an epic plot that kept me glued to the pages from the mysterious beginnings right to the super-charged, action-packed ending . It is definitely a five star book and I highly recommend it to readers of all ages, even though it is categorized as a YA novel.

Once in a while I pick up a Young Adult Fiction in the hopes of recapturing that feeling of being lost in my imagination while reading. This book certainly does the job, it’s so is fresh and enticing from beginning to end, each character is well scripted, and the movement between them flows seamlessly. I am very impressed by S.S. Segran’s ability to channel children. She's captured the fact that while children are ignorant and inexperienced in many respects, many of them can certainly think well and can understand quite complicated aspects of reality. The setup together with the abundance of interesting sub-plots makes this the most entertaining fantasy I’ve read in a very long time, thank god it’s only the first book in the series. This is a novel that is not to be missed by anybody!
