Aegis Rising by S.S. Duran

 

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. One randomly drawn commenter will receive a $40 Amazon GC. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

Over a remote northern forest, a small plane carrying five teenage friends flies into a freak storm. Struck by lightning, the aircraft crashes and the passengers find themselves cast into a life-changing adventure.

In a hidden valley, a mysterious people gaze at the stormy sky as a glowing object with fiery wings disappears behind a mountain ridge. The astonishing sight reignites an ancient prophecy foretelling the arrival of five chosen ones destined to become bearers of light against a dark storm gathering on humanity’s horizon.

In a distant city, a secretive organization led by a shadowy figure initiates a sequence of cataclysmic events designed to wreak havoc across the planet, beginning with a remote mining site in northern Canada.

As the three worlds collide, unlikely heroes arise. Armed with powers entrusted to them by the ancient prophecy and the resilience of their life-long bond, the five teens take a stand against a malevolent foe.

Jag placed two fingers on his mentor’s neck and felt a very faint pulse. He slammed his fist against the ground, knowing Tayoka was hardly hanging on.

“Is he still alive?” Tegan murmured.

“Barely.”

Aari looked up at the Osprey. “We need to get him out of here. The plane’s going to turn back soon.”

“Take care of him,” Jag said, an edge to his voice as he stood up.

Tegan caught a look in his eyes and knew something was brewing in his mind. “What are you—”

“Just get him to safety,” he cut her off, turning to look at the plane. Without another word, he started to sprint in the direction of the aircraft. He heard his friends shouting his name but his mind was set and he was not turning back.

There’s definitely a lot of information in this book to build the background. There are many things going on that you can’t figure out how they will interact. Keep your hat on and hold on for the ride.

Five teens are flying with one of the friend’s dad for a vacation. Unfortunately they will not meet their destination. During a storm, the plane is struck by lightning and comes down over a deserted mountain range. Luckily for the five, it wasn’t so deserted. The area is inhibited by a village that has no interaction with the outside world. They are a hidden civilization that has survived for years with only the knowledge of the original inhabitants and a higher-minded people who came to their land when a volcanic eruption destroyed their home. The traditions and knowledge of these two civilizations have made the villagers surprisingly fully efficient and modern considering they do not have access to the outside world. The villagers take in the teens, care for them and heal them. When they finally recover they just want to go home. Their questions are dodged until the village Elders meet with them. The teens learn that the elders believe the group will fulfill an ancient prophecy. The prophecy talks about the five that will lead the world to the light and out of the darkness that it will find itself in. The teens have no idea where they are or if anyone is even looking for them. Do they trust the villagers that took them in and cared for them or do they hightail it out of there and take their chances? There’s also another problem brewing that the Elders have to address. Their people are falling ill and none of their remedies or healing powers are working. They have never been able to not heal whatever they have come down with. This also leads the Elders to wonder if the teens will be involved in this as well.

Awesome story. Once the foundation is built, the drama and suspense takes off from there. Page-turning, action-packed, twists and turns that you are not expecting! If you’re looking to suspense, this is up your alley!!

About the Author:

S.S.Segran spent a good chunk of her childhood exploring the enchanted forest of a million tales in the mystical land of books. In her early teens, she began crafting intriguing new worlds and conjuring up characters who came alive with the flick of her wand… err… pen. With the publication of Aegis Rising in her senior year of high school, she was surprised by the abundance of time that magically appeared right after graduation. She plans to use this newfound resource to expand the arc of the Aegis Series. Her future plans include studying Cognitive Science at university and helping youths in developing countries realize their potential through the non-profit organization, Aegis League (www.aegisleague.org)

When not devouring a book or writing one, S.S.Segran can be found standing behind the cauldron of life, stirring a potion made up of chores, parkour, gaming, drawing, horseback riding and—having recently jumped off a perfectly fine airplane at fifteen thousand feet – perhaps skydiving.
