Over a remote northern forest, a small plane carrying five teenage friends - Jag, Mariah, Kody, Tegan and Aari - 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.
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 unharmed but with no recollection of what happened to them after the accident.
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.

WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE AEGIS SERIES
"If Daniel Silva and Rick Riordan had a love child, it would be the young S.S.Segran. With the intensity of an adult spy thriller and the relatable characters that teenagers enjoy, Aegis Incursion takes YA Action, Adventure, and Fantasy to a new level."
~ The OnlineBookClub.org ~
" An electrifying thrill-ride over Hunger Games, Maze Runner and Percy Jackson territory."
~ Amazon Reviewer ~
" In her impressive debut novel, S.S. Segran wields a skillful pen that transcends her youth by crafting haunting prose, vivid imagery, and a well thought out plot to cast herself into a mix of young authors to watch. It is obvious, from the very first chapter, that this is the work of a talented writer who possesses an enviable imagination along with the intelligence to mold it into an absorbing story."
~ Christopher Gill - Amazon Reviews ~
" Astonishingly Imaginative and thoughtful...the book should be read both quickly and slowly - quickly in order to enjoy the rapid sledding of the plot and slowly to mull characters and ideas. Aegis Rising sets a festive narrative table and makes the reader eagerly anticipate a sequel."
~ Samuel F. Pickering - Professor Emeritus of English, University of Connecticut & Inspiration for the film Dead Poets Society ~
" FIVE STARS! Unique and compelling. Delivers on every level... perhaps the best sci-fi adventure I have read all year!"
~ Katherine Bennett - Readers' Favorite Book Reviews ~
"An extraordinary effort... all the more amazing given the author's age. I was especially gratified by the way she used the teen
protagonists' close knit relationships as the backdrop against which the dramatic events in Aegis Rising unfolded, without having
"love interest" or other typical teen story devices hijack the underlying theme of the book. She's a real talent!"
~ Red Grammer - Grammy Nominated, Award Winning Producer ~
