Publisher's Summary

A thrilling prequel to the best-selling Orbs series.

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. But the boys are survivors. Living in the tunnels beneath the White Sands military base, escaping from hungry aliens, and searching for supplies, they hatch a plan. The boys will fight back, and before they're through the white sands will run red with blood.

    What did you love best about Red Sands?

    The story itself is amazing. Short stories like this just made the series more enjoyable.


    What other book might you compare Red Sands to and why?

    None. It was an original tale.


    What about James Fouhey’s performance did you like?

    His voice was fine and easy to listen to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't know, honestly.


    Any additional comments?

    Orbs is a science fiction thriller that keeps you cringing and worrying about what's out there and what could happen if it came here! Set in the far future, earth is in trouble- we've abused natural resources and now, what's left is wanted by another more ominous, vicious being. Can humanity be saved? The Orbs series, written by Nicholas Sansbury Smith, is one of the best sci-fi tales I've read this year so far!<br/><br/> Red Sands is the fantastic story of Jeff and David, as well as a few others during the alien apocalypse. The story is so much stronger with this short story, and honestly, it tells more than I imagined. To me, it's very necessary, strengthening the saga instead of just filling in. <br/><br/>This installment also tells of the intended plan for the hidden settlements, and you begin to understand the monsters. The purpose of the spiders and a little something about who's controlling them. Read It!<br/><br/>The full Orbs series review:<br/>http://www.areneehunt.com/the-reviews/the-orbs-series-by-nicholas-sansbury-smith<br/><br/>Orbs Series<br/>Nicholas Sansbury Smith<br/>Simon & Shuster/Simon

    "I feel like I missed something"

    Okay, I just read this prequel to the series Orbs . While it's very good and very well written I feel like something must've happened before this started. Now I see that there are two more prequels and since they are numbered; Clearly, I've gotten them out of order. I'm not pleased but I am trudging on because the story has me intrigued.
