7 Scorpions, Book 1: Rebellion Paperback – May 13, 2010
"The story was unique and a lot of fun. I look forward to seeing what the author has in store for Vincent and his group of rebels in the next book." - Feathered Quill Book Reviews
"Plenty of action and characters that are real enough for us to have genuine concern for them. '7 Scorpions: Rebellion' is the first book in a new trilogy and I'm looking forward to catching up with Vincent and his group of rebels in the second book, '7 Scorpions: Revolution.'" - Marty Shaw, Reader Views

Regarding the characters, none of them can be categorized as a cliche. Vincent, aka Night Viper, is one of the main characters and is a superhuman soldier. One might expect such a character to be moody or dark, Vincent is neither. He is a dynamic individual who expresses emotion just like any of the other characters. He doesn't believe himself better or superior than anyone: he's simply a product of what's happened to him. Lexi, on the other hand, acts like she's a superhuman and she doesn't even have any powers (except for not feeling fear). Despite her limitations, especially when working with Vincent, Lexi shows confidence and courage.
Even the 'evil' or 'bad' characters are not one dimensional beings. Commander Jade has committed atrocities and is the very definition of sinister, but we learn this was a woman horribly abused in her life and who is really far from the evil commander she displayed herself to be.Read more ›
On May 7th, an event named the Flash Storm devastated the world when it destroyed every major city and military base on the planet. However, this wasn't a natural disaster, it was caused by the new ruler named Zodiac. A powerful and evil man who sometimes claims that his Flash Storm was for the better, as it eliminated the majority of the corruption. Due to the disastrous event, the world is plunged into complete chaos and hope less than dwindles on a thin string. Zodiac's Grand Army, made up of human slaves in special suit's are seemingly unstoppable and a rebel rebellion seems impossible. All until a small group make's it's appearance and gives new hope to the remaining of mankind. Vincent, a powerful and tough man who has a thing for killing Seekers and spreading hope. Alexis, who I call the woman version of Vincent, is a fearless and impressive sidekick who I think sub conciously spreads just as much hope. And Josh, a computer geek who is too smart for you not to have confidence in. And these three, seem to be gathering an army of their own, quietly and effectively.
This book doesn't just give you a one character point of view, but actually a lot of character's point of view. And Mike write's it so well that it doesn't bother you because you're forming relationship's with characters that help's establish emotion and concern for them. Vital importance when writing a series like Mike.Read more ›
Remember the shock and surprise when Vader turned out to be Luke's dad... For the 80s, that was a unique WOW that all other sci-fi stories set their standards by... this book will be setting new levels of expectations for the years to come...
The author got the idea for the story all from him dreams....
Using real locations set to back drops familiar to us all with a unique Sci-Fi twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more... AND THERE WILL BE. This is book 1 of 3!
Check out the author's site...
I definitely recommend this purchase.
