"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 ~
RECOMMENDED. 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
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.

As a fantasy fiction writer I have to admit that I am a harsher critic when it comes to novels / books in this genre. Books in this genre have a way to sweep you away into a world that is far distant from our own. In many ways books in this class I feel should be able captivate the imagination and place you in a different realm that is far (very far) from the problems and stress of everyday life. If a book in the genre is able to do that i.e. “Game of Thrones,” “The Hobbit,” “Narnia,” etc. then it has succeeded in a way that will not only stand the test of time, but will also leave a mark on your own life. They will be told time and time again to love ones and the people that interact daily in our lives.
With that said, “AEGIS RISING” accomplishes that and a whole lot more. From start to finish you will be swept into the world of author S.S. Segran. Each of the characters is gifted with their own unique personalities that are developed to perfection. Some are likable, some will leave you thinking, a few will make you grin, while other will have you smiling and rooting for them till the very end. The writing style is also extremely descriptive. This descriptiveness paints a vivid picture that is filled with lavish sceneries that place you in the center of all the action. When reading this book, I felt as if I was walking alongside the dynamic 5 casts of characters as they each find ways to make their mark on the world that is on the brink of disaster. This is one that I can certainly picture on the big screen and perhaps will one day.
Truly the work of a master storyteller I am amazed that author S.S. Segran is only a teenager. If this is the quality of writing now, I cannot imagine how it will develop and be in a few years. Simply Brilliant!
5 Stars well deserved stars and wish there were more stars to pass out.
