The Test

This compact novella combines issues of immigration as well as a hostage story into a tale of incredible choices.

Waking Gods

Darker than the first book, this entry maintains the effective format of a compiled history of interviews, news items, and official journal entries. This series' thoughtful yet action-packed nature would make for a great film, and in fact, the rights were sold to Sony Pictures before the first volume came out. [See Prepub Alert, 10/31/16.]

Sleeping Giants

Reminiscent of Max Brooks's World War Z, the story's format effectively builds suspense using debriefings and news articles after the fact. Great characters such as prickly pilot Kara Resnik keep the tale grounded, and readers gradually get a picture, complete with the anonymous interviewer as he pulls strings to keep the project afloat and world tensions under control. A remarkable debut.
