Aegis Incursion (The Aegis League Series #2)
by S.S. Segran
Release Date: March 23rd 2015
INKmagination Books

Summary from Goodreads:

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.


Okay, so I did not read the first book. I was told this could be read as a stand alone book, and they weren't kidding. Absolutely no mis-step in getting into the story whatsoever.

Wow! What an incredibly imaginative story…very scientific in theory, I'm wondering if the author has some kind of background in physics or something? If not, she surly did her research, just the little nanomites alone are something else. And then of course there's all the supernatural excitement included, so this makes for a really fun read.

The book is fast paced and a challenge to put down once you get rolling, very easy to follow along with the story, no confusions, yay. Very visual, super action packed! The main characters, the kids, are wonderfully crafted individuals, great distinctive personalities…they are believable and enjoyable to picture…even if they are modern day super-heros! Like I said, I believed their stories…very well done.

The one thing that bugged me, and this is me being me, is in the beginning the author would use the term, "the five" incessantly…literally, several times in a paragraph. Even when it was obvious that no one else was involved in the scene but the teens, she would say  "the five". Instead of saying, "they all walked outside", it was always, the five walked outside, the five sat down, the five looked at each other. It really annoyed me for a while, then it seemed to diminish as the story went on..thank goodness. So unless I'm unaware of the fact that they are known as  "the Five",  like the X-Men or something, and I missed this "title"..then of course I apologize and take it all back…otherwise it just bugged me for a while…and if I'm being totally honest, a couple of the  "other-worldy" names were very difficult to pronounce and sometimes slowed me down when I was on a roll, attempting to figure out how to hear their names in my head. However, this did not bother to the detriment of the story in the least.

Needless to say, I'm absolutely eager to get to the next installment to see where our heroes end up…oh! and it looks like I'll go back and read the first book in the series to get the actual background of the story…however, that's just for something else to read, not because it's necessary to enjoy this book. Well done SS Segran!
