Book Description

'The Avengers meets Magician, The Planets Series is superhero conflict on a global scale…’

An ancient cadre of magicians
A select team of extra-ordinary warriors
An unseen foe

As two ancient forces battle for control, reality as we know it is being torn apart. Caught somewhere in the middle, and tasked with ridding the world of the insidious alien intelligence are The Planets. Neptune hails from Rio, the gay daughter of strict catholic parents. Mars, from Ireland, still missing the sister he lost years ago. Uri grew up on the streets of New York, and Venus… well, no one knows and she isn’t telling. Imbued with extra-ordinary powers, these highly trained individuals take the fight across the globe. With startling and unnerving revelations at every turn, the depth of deception is only now becoming clear…’

This is a fantastic read; the characters are very engaging and the pace of the action is steady, so it keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Little mysteries are sewn in throughout the book, which entice you to read 'just one more page', which then turns to finishing a chapter, then wanting to see what happens next.

And just as you think you are about to find out the truth, the next line will take your breath away.

I love that it's not just a team of superheroes battling the bad guys, but there's also the interaction between the members, the teamwork and the arguments - all pretty much responding in the way anyone would to what they see every day. There are a few brief moments of swear words, but in the situation they are used, I think I'd utter the same thing!

Fantasy readers will love the 'people with special powers' story, and sci-fi readers will love the futuristic technology that is littered throughout, but it is not too much as to lose the interest of the average reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Supernatural Mash-up June 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Gods, wizards, aliens, magic, alternate realities, and super heroes ... it's all in this book and really well done ... It is incredible that the author is able to get all these concepts in there without being overstuffed or underdeveloped.

This is a great opening chapter to the series that is able to weave personal stories of each of the characters while not losing focus on the larger, grand conflict the characters are up against.

The concept of "The Planets" is a great idea, and a concept well explored.

There is a lot of grey, in the seemingly black and white, good vs. evil world presented in the beginning ... It makes for a great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cairns delights again June 4, 2014
By Ted
Format:Kindle Edition
The Planets must save the world but no one's telling what they're up against and they're not normally team players! Action packed adventure with wonderfully colourful, complex characters, great dialogue and a story line that will keep you hooked to the very last page. I'll be buying book 2 as soon as it's out and can't wait to see what Cairns thinks up next!!!

More About the Author

Michael Cairns was born at a young age and could write even before he could play the drums, but that was long ago, in the glory days - when he actually had hair.

He loves pineapple, playing gigs and outwitting his young daughter (the scores are about level but she's getting smarter every day).

Michael is currently working hard on writing, getting enough sleep and keeping his hair. The first is going well, the other two...not so much.

A compulsive chocoholic, he is a writer and author of the real-world super-hero series, The Planets, and science fiction adventure series, A Game of War.
