Editorial Reviews


Astonishingly imaginative and thoughtful...the book should be read both quickly and slowly - quickly in order to enjoy the rapid sledding ofthe plot and slowly to mull characters and ideas. Aegis Rising sets afestive narrative table and makes the reader eagerly anticipate asequel." ~ 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~

RIVETING! 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 my Amazon page.Aegis Rising tells a 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. Meanwhile a mysterious organization with a global reach, led by a shadowy figure initiates a cataclysmic plan to reorder life on the planet. As the two worlds collide, five best friends find themselves catapulted into the middle of this devastating conflict.

Although led by a cast of  young adult protagonists, the Aegis League Series appeals to readers of all ages. It is a classic good versus evil story with a modern twist to it. As one reader puts 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 the apocalyptic 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 gratified by the amazing response that the series has garnered from readers across the globe. 
I hope that you find the intrigue and adventure in the world of Aegis well worth your time.Here's to you discovery of books that engage, entertain and enlighten! 
Shirin S. Segran

Amazon Bestselling author S.S. Segran is a lover of books, dogs and all the popcorn she can stuff her face with. Her genre-defying Aegis League Series traverses the exciting worlds of action/adventure, sci-fi, thriller and speculative fiction in the YA universe.

When not devouring a novel or writing one, Segran can be found drawing on paper and tablet, or tumbling into a black hole of comic books and video games. She’s an ardent fan of horseback riding and parkour, and having enjoyed jumping out of a perfectly fine plane at fifteen thousand feet — perhaps skydiving.
