    In the year 2055, scientists discover something far worse than rising temperatures and rising seas - they discover massive sunspots that are producing unprecedented solar flares. With little time to prepare for the storms, NASA recruits doctors Sophie Winston and Emanuel Rodriguez to help monitor the solar weather. At first, the duo believes they have been hired for a routine project. But when arriving at the Johnson Space Center they quickly realize they haven't been told everything about their mission.

    Important but...

    Most of the information that is given in this short is already in the series. It fleshes the story out a little bit more but isn't what I would call ..Show More »

    Jeff and his little brother, David, were normal kids; they loved video games, fighter planes, and learning to hunt with their dad. Little did they know their lives were about to change. The boys and their father find themselves stranded in the desert when a military jet comes careening out of the sky and crashes directly into their car. Barely escaping the incident with their lives, and out of contact with the rest of the world, the trio must make the perilous journey back to civilization.

    Even more confused

    This prequel clearly belongs in front of Red Sands which I've already read. But at least now I know how the two boys ended up alone and what started t..Show More »

    Jeff and his little brother, David, are alone. Their parents have disappeared along with the rest of the world, replaced by glowing blue orbs and a terrifying army of aliens.

The boys will fight back, and before they're through the white sands will run red with blood.

    The year is 2061, and the planet is dying. Cataclysmic solar storms have forced leaders from around the world to finally put aside their differences and agree on one thing - to jump ship. The human race is headed to Mars. Dr. Sophie Winston is hired by New Tech Corporation to test a biosphere deep within the heart of Cheyenne Mountain; a mission she believes will help prepare NTC for the three-year flight to the red planet. But, just days into the assignment, things start to go wrong. When the blast doors hiss open, Winston's team finds a changed world outside.

    Fast-moving Alien Sci-Fi!

    Yes, anyone looking for a fast-paced alien invasion would enjoy this book.

    At the end of the world, who can you trust? The aliens have invaded, wiping out almost all life on earth. Their goal: water. Huge spaceships are draining the oceans, and the few remaining humans have been herded into farms, where their bodies are harvested to support the growing alien army.

    A little better than ORBS I

    The characters are still very stereotypical but there are more of them and some very interesting ethical dilemmas occur that force most people to pick..Show More »

    With their numbers diminishing and the alien armies growing stronger, Sophie's biosphere decides to join forces with the team from NTC's submarine. Using data from a surviving satellite, they discover strange, alien poles at each of the world's seven highest summits: alien technology that the survivors believe may hold the key to shutting down the alien ships once and for all.

    HUH? What just happened?

    First off, I liked the finale to the story but it was a little different. The alien drones have some very interesting and odd masters.
