A lost experiment from the Second World War. America’s croplands in ruins. Widespread hunger and riots. Five friends with missing memories caught in the maelstrom.
A mysterious plague tears across the planet, obliterating vital crops in its wake. Panic and riots break out, pitting citizens against each other. Famine and rebellion push desperate nations to the brink of war.
With the memories of their fateful summer suspiciously erased, Jag, Tegan, Aari, Mariah and Kody must rediscover themselves and the powerful secret they possess to rise against the forces of darkness eclipsing the world.
Hunted at every turn by clandestine operatives dead set on stopping them, can the group outmaneuver their pursuers and prevent humanity from sliding deeper into ruin? Or will the enemy continue to march forward with its plans to deconstruct life as we know it?
Perfect for fans of the Maze Runner, Divergent, Hunger Games and Percy Jackson series, The Aegis League Series tells a gripping story of a battle for the fate of humanity, and five friends compelled to tread the path of courage, strength and sacrifice as its saviors.
"If Daniel Silva and Rick Riordan had a love child, it would be the young S.S.Segran. With the intensity of an adult spy thriller and the relatable characters that teenagers enjoy, Aegis Incursion takes YA Action, Adventure, and Fantasy to a new level." – The OnlineBookClub.org
“★★★★★ S.S. Segran did it again. Aegis Incursion... made me laugh, cry, and worry. That was in one chapter alone.” – Candy Canfora, Verified Amazon Reviewer
“★★★★★ It is very rare to see female characters within a mixed group develop so strongly in a book. It was awesome! Contrary to the norm, it became evident over the course of the book that Mariah and Tegan are some of the most positively destructive forces in this book. They wreak absolute havoc and are key to the group’s operations.” – Tobi Martins, Verified Amazon Reviewer
"★★★★★ A long time since I've read such a unique captivating story which stands head and shoulders above the rest. Cleverly thought out, believable characters and an excellent plot.” – John Barnes, Verified Goodreads Reviewer
“★★★★★ I love how the story is evolving without the usual teenage love dramas. If you like action, adventure, mystery, thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian fiction and even historical fiction, there’s a little bit of all of that woven together expertly into one passionate tale.” – Verified Amazon Reviewer
“★★★★★ In the best tradition of action-adventure novels written for young adults, the protagonist isn't a single person: it's actually five (or more, depending on your point of view) young people, friends who have banded together and been bonded to one another through experiences you've only ever imagined sharing with your high school bests. Each of those characters is easy to like, sympathetic, and fascinating, with his or her respective abilities and personality, making for a compelling read from start to finish.” ~ Eleanore T.

"Five Stars! A great book to dive into and a fantastic follow up to the first. One of the best things author S.S.Segran has done here is to produce a sequel that can be read as a standalone."
~ Readers' Favorite Reviews ~
"With the intrigue of an A.G.Riddle novel, the relentless action of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt adventures and the dystopian backdrop of Hunger Games, Aegis Incursion marks the arrival of S.S.Segran as a compelling young author in the YA scene."
~ Honore Gbedze - SAGE Foundation ~
"Where the first book excelled in building a mythology and a legend capped with an exciting showdown, the sequel provides nearly cover-to-cover action that never loosens its hold on the reader. Once the wheels of the plot begin turning, it isn't long before kidnappings, explosions, gunfire, fearful monsters, shadowy ringleaders, and espionage begin unfolding across dozens of chapters and multiple U.S. states. There are occasional moments where the story comes up for air, but with new characters both good and bad and more build-up to the inevitable tipping point of the world, the action is the clear focal point here. A good sequel stands alone as a strong work without the accomplishments of its predecessors, but a great sequel inspires readers to go back and relive a book they've already read, and that is precisely what this book accomplishes."~ Recommended by the US Review of Books ~

The kids memories of their time in the village in the Yukon training and fighting along side the people that are descendants of the combination between, a mysterious advanced civilization refugees and a more primitive village population. The teens while battle proven are sent back home with their memories clouded as to what they had done. They don't train, they don't even spend as much time together as they had before. Suddenly as they start a road trip to try to bring them back together the way they had been they begin having dreams.
Talking they become aware they are the same dream just from each of their own perspective. They slowly remember their skills and when attacked with a cloud bomb the memories come rushing back. On the heels of the memories they also become aware of a new global threat to the food supply and the dark cabal they had faced in the Yukon is behind this new threat. With the assistance of a mouse, a farm Labrador and a dragon fly! These teens use their brains and those devoted to help them stop the danger in America and help the sentries around the world, but the main leader of the Cabal of evil is still out there, and while taken down with some losses they are still left with fighting one that would be a rival of the Elders that taught them and he is aware of them, they haven't gotten close to him yet. That battle is down the road and will be a defining battle of good and evil.
This book is great for tweens, teens and young adults, I highly recommend it for gifts, and yea even those of us over 50 can enjoy the page turning drama and action. You feel mad that a teen gets kidnapped twice in one week by the same guy they had trusted. The mousecapades and dragonfly flights are wonderful and entertaining. The fact that as the book closes the teens parents are about to meet an Elder is a very big deal..the question is will it become a deal breaker? Will the parents support the fight or will there be division? This battle has already cost one family the beloved Grandmother, at what point does the family say the price is too high! Your life is at stake! Where do the Kids become the adults and say it is a fight we have to take on, sorry Mom and Dad but I can't stop?
Good vs Evil is a battle that is everywhere, do we see it when it's a mob mentality looting a store as much as a evil plot to destroy crops? We need to step in and say NO when it's the local store as much as when it's the planet. Take a stand and not allow your mind to become brainwashed by evil looking to get a toe hold. It's a hard battle, and one that these kids are willing to fight, but they are impulsive and are coming to grips with the cost.
I eagerly await the next installment of this series, it is one that I recommend to all readers. You take away from it some of the most basic principals, how to live with your choices, and when to fight against control.
And some are made to keep secrets, whether they know it or not. What happens when the secret knowledge that you carry makes you both the cure to an evil of international proportions, and the target of those propagating that evil?
Enter AEGIS INCURSION, the second book in the Aegis League series of action-adventure, apocalyptic science fiction novels by author S.S. Segran.
Yes, you read that genre correctly.
And yet, despite the apparent disparity of those sub-genres fitting together, Segran handles the crossovers seamlessly and with aplomb. I never got lost in the shuffle, never felt too jumbled to bother turning the page, never wondered what on earth I was actually reading.
That kind of precision is the mark of an expert author.
In the best tradition of action-adventure novels written for young adults, as are these, the protagonist isn't a single person: it's actually five (or more, depending on your point of view) young people, friends who have banded together and been bonded to one another through experiences you've only ever imagined sharing with your high school bests. Each of those characters is easy to like, sympathetic, and fascinating, with his or her respective abilities and personality, making for a compelling read from start to finish.
And you'll never be bored, on the off chance that the characters don't appeal to you (they will --- I promise). That's because the plot rivals those of most well-written contemporary thrillers and suspense novels I've had the pleasure of reading. There's always something happening. It's usually bad.
Nothing better to keep me entertained through the story.
And though the novels are written for young adults, don't hesitate to pick them up if you're "over age." I was riveted, captivated all the way through, and it's been a long time since anyone could categorize me as a "young adult."
I can't offer higher praise than that.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this work from the author in exchange for an honest, though not necessarily positive, review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
On a bright July morning in 1948, a B-29 Superfortress flying a top-secret research mission over Nevada crashes into the calm waters of Lake Mead and sinks, remaining lost for half a century.
It has been nearly a year since five friends - Jag, Kody, Mariah, Tegan and Aari - mysteriously reappeared in a small town in Yukon several weeks after their small plane went down in Northern Canada. All were found in good health but with no recollection of what happened to them after the crash.
A baffling contagion is spreading across the bread-basket of North America destroying vital crops. As this dark shadow marches across the globe, widespread famine and riots bring desperate nations to the brink of war.
These seemingly unrelated events set the stage for a battle between the forces of darkness and those destined to become the 'bearers of light'. From ravaged fields in the Great Plains to clandestine installations around the world, the Aegis League must race against time to save humanity.

Readers, note that you don't need to have read the first Aegis League novel to fully appreciate this one - this story does entirely stand alone. While this may be frustrating for followers of the series, it does allow newcomers to be rapidly brought up to speed.
I thought that this was a definite improvement on the first book. The story flowed a lot better, reintroducing the principle five characters and their abilities while interspersing their development with some very exciting sequences. It was a very easy read and I devoured the first half of the story in just a couple of hours.
The series still carries a very environmental and can be a little heavy-handed in its approach at times but does provide an interesting angle on issues with world agriculture and just how far reaching a food crisis would be. While the plot did make me curious, it should be noted that little is resolved in this volume. The heroes remain ignorant of the villain's grand plan as the series is apparently intended to run for a further three novels.
I did feel that it started to drag over its second half. The book felt longer than it needed to be and a lot of that was given over to repetition and over elaborate details. Segran has a habit of describing every single character movement which did become a little tiring after a while.
Yet the characterisation had drastically improved. In Aegis Rising, I had trouble telling the teens apart but now they have noticeably different personalities. While I still felt that some had more development than others (Mariah is probably the weakest of the lot, while Jag gets a whole lot of backstory in this volume), it's nice to see that the author has fleshed them out into more realistic teenagers. The villains also had more motivation this time around and didn't just exist to be evil.
All in all, I was pleasantly surprised. I'm very interested to see how Segran's skill will increase as she continues the series.
I gave the first book in this series 5 stars, although I felt slightly unsure and would have chosen to give it 9/10 if that were possible - however, this one gets a resounding 10, or 5 on Amazon's system. Perhaps it is because the characters seem more developed - the 5 young people seem to have grown up a bit, and I like the way the story moved around the country, and introduced new and interesting characters.
