Debut Novel EXPLORER X-Alpha, by LM Preston, Takes Young Adult readers on the Adventure of a Lifetime
What if you could adapt to any planet you landed on? What if you were engineered to dominate the species of any world? ‘EXPLORER X - Alpha’ a Young Adult Science Fiction adventure shows what happens to a boy’s world when he discovers that he is engineered to dominate planets, and how his coveted powers cause him to value being human.
[Elkridge, MD., January 24, 2010] – LM. Preston is a dynamic new voice in young adult science fiction. Her debut novel, EXPLORER-X – Alpha (February 6th 2010), takes the reader on the ride of their lives to space and a far away planet. This first installment of the EXPLORER X series features Aadi who discovers the true purpose of the Space Camp owned by his parent’s company.
For most kids, a trip to space camp is a trip of a lifetime, for Aadi it was life altering. After receiving a camp immunization needed for travel to Mars, Aadi finds that the immunization is the catalyst of an insidious experiment. Lucky for him, he was engineered to survive, thrive, and dominate. Without realizing he is being trained to conquer worlds, and manipulated under the guise of a camp, he unfolds the plot too late for a change of fate.
The full experiment is set in motion when he and his co-pilot, Eirena, crash in a distant galaxy called Shrenas, where they change and realize the full extent of their power. Holding onto his humanity, in the midst of turning into a god is Aadi's biggest battle yet. This turn of events causes him to put his childish thoughts away, forcing him to accept his change, and to decide to save a world, or to do what he was trained to do, dominate it. In the midst his struggles with his changes, his power is coveted by the warring leaders of Shrenas, and he is forced to choose sides to save a life, or to save himself. A decision that will prove just how much humanity he has left.
