Brian has been bullied all of his life. He hides and prefers to be in the company of his two friends because they're the only ones who understand his illness and are not embarrassed to be associated with him. On a dare, they went to a psychic reading. The prediction jump started a series of incidents that Brian don't understand. But when it brings him closer Shannon, the prettiest girl in school, he dives in and doesn't look back.
Told in Brian's perspective, I enjoyed his inner ramblings. The rest of the story is not what I expected as Brian came out of his shell and turns out as a true hero. The twist is brilliant and left me on the edge of my seat. It all made sense in the end. I can't wait for book 2. Bring it on!
Sooo how long do we have to wait for the 2nd book of the new series?
Brian wasn't a normal teenage kid. By saying that I am meaning he has Tourettes syndrome. He was the laugh of the school with his uncontrollable tics and outburst. His friends thought it would be fun to visit a physic reader. What each of them are told sends them into a world of the unknown and could possibly change their lives.
He meets Shannon and controlling his emotions around her becomes a bigger problem for him.. He becomes very close to Shannon and he is soon to realise that his duty is to keep her safe from harm. While keeping her safe from unghastly creatures and not so human people, he begins to uncover that he isn't who he thought he was and neither is Shannon.
He is the Rise of Alpha. A teenager whose sole purpose his to protect his people.
This book grabbed me from page one and held my interest the whole way through.
Brian was by far my favorite character because he overcame the bullying in and out of school. He was the oddball who came out on top in the end.
I loved it.
Finding out that he is the guardian of a being not of earth is one thing, but finding out his whole life has been a lie is quite another.
I will admit, I am not a fan of science fiction and once I got to the “alien” part, I wanted to stop right there. I didn’t, and I enjoyed every page. The writing is great and the storyline is so intriguing that I had to keep going. This is such an amazing book, I can’t wait for the next one!!

As you see with Brian, he appears to be the normal awkward outcast in school. Dealing with his issues, embarrassment keeps him in the shadows of others. Lorenz never lets her characters sit in victim role for long though, you will be excited to watch as Brian learns the truth for his purpose in life. As the pieces come together for not only him but the readers, hearts will begin to race and minds will begin to turn, all trying to predict what his next step will be.
Shannon is not as she appears to be on the outside and it didn’t take long for my heart to belong to her. I am not usually a fan of stories centered on teenagers, especially girls, but Shannon was a unique girl who was doing the best she could with what life had handed her. As her story begins to unfold, it gives the reader another level of intensity. Once again, this is an example of how Lorenz Font can take the reader from an average read to something remarkable with one of her stories.
I felt that my husband would enjoy this book so I offered it to him to read. He is very particular with what his choices, it needs to be fast paced, not an over load of love and romance and the suspense has to be believable. His attention span is short lived so if you want him to finish a book it has to be one that he can’t put down till he has turned the last page. This was one of those books for him. When I asked him what he would give as far as a rating he said certainly, five stars. Even now he can’t forget the story and is continually asking me if the second book is close to being released.
When trying to describe any book from this author the very first thing I say is her books become a big screen movie for the reader’s minds. She encourages us to enter into the scenes with the characters, and experience the events along with them. She makes us feel the emotions and what I love most is she isn’t afraid to let the characters drive the story. If you can find an author who is loyal to her characters and faces the fear of putting it out there, you are promised a ride of a life time in each story. This one will not disappoint, it is unique, investing and will have you begging for the next book so we can continue the mystery that life has left Brian and Shannon in.
