Aegis Rising by S.S. Segran
“From the flames of Cerraco five will arise, Saplings of Aegis, the bearers of light…” so begins the ancient prophecy of a hidden civilization thriving in a small valley in northern Canada. They have been awaiting the five “chosen” ones for hundreds of years. Little did they know the five “Saplings of Aegis” would be five teenage friends who literally fall from the sky in a fireball. Tegan, Kody, Jag, Mariah and Aari survive a plane crash that drops them into their destiny. They must become the five bearers of light against a rising darkness that immediately threatens the hidden valley and poses a danger to the rest of the world. Ms. Segran’s sci-fi adventure is remarkably imaginative. While the action starts off slowly, it becomes increasingly captivating. The five protagonists are likeable and watching them become heroes is satisfying. Ms. Segran’s writing is polished and her imagery vivid. All in all “Aegis Rising” is a refreshing story with broad audience appeal.

Reblogged this on aegisnovel.
Thank you Jessica for sharing your thoughts on Aegis Rising. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the novel. I am currently working on Aegis Incursion (book two) which will be out in November/December this year. The ‘Dark Clouds’ alluded to in Aegis Rising begin to descend upon the planet in book two and the five friends find themselves thrown into this tempest and they learn about the pivotal role they will play as the story unfolds.
If you like, I would me more than happy to send you a copy to review when it is released later this year.
