Summary from Goodreads:

When he was six, Johnny’s parents gave their lives to defeat the Anunnaki and free Earth. Except they failed. Ten years of training later, a reluctant Johnny is the best cadet in the Watcher resistance network. He’s not the best because he wants to fight aliens, but because it’s the only way to escape his parents’ tainted legacy. At least, according to The Eagle, the leader of the resistance.
But on the day Johnny is set to graduate and finally put his training into action, the Anunnaki attack his home, New Bagram, forcing a full-scale evacuation. When the dust settles, Johnny vows to protect the surviving New Bagramites, who long for a symbol of hope. His mission: find the four Conifers, alien gems that grant superhuman powers. The good news: he already has one. The bad news: The Anunnaki have three. The worse news: The Anunnaki only need his Conifer to activate a doomsday weapon of biblical proportions.

If Johnny wants to stop the Anunnaki and protect New Bagram’s survivors, he must overcome his resentment over a lost childhood and accept his parents’ legacy. He will have to rely on his combat prowess and learn to trust again. He will have to become the deadliest earthling.

Excerpt:
“A million stars in the sky, but he spotted the Zeta Reticuli
system in a second. He’d walked with his dad once,
just like this, when he was maybe three or four. His dad
pointed it out and said the Anunnaki were a plague to the
entire universe. That’s why they’d come to Earth. To plunder
and ruin, as they’d done to other planets. Bullies at the
playground. That’s why everyone hated the Anunnaki.
That’s why his parents left tonight.”

Omega City

OmegaCity

Gillian Seagret doesn’t listen to people who say her father’s a crackpot. His conspiracy theories about the lost technology of Cold War-era rocket scientist Dr. Aloysius Underberg may have cost him his job and forced the family to move to a cottage in the sticks, but Gillian knows he’s right, and plans to prove it. When she discovers a missing page from Dr. Unerberg’s diary in her father’s mess of an office, she thinks she’s found a big piece of the puzzle–a space-themed riddle promising to lead to Dr. Underberg’s greatest invention. Enlisting the help of her skeptical younger brother, Eric, her best friend, Savannah, and Howard, their NASA-obsessed schoolmate, Gillian sets off into the ruins of a vast doomsday bunker, deep within the earth. But they aren’t alone inside its dark and flooded halls. Now Gillian and her friends must race to explore OMEGA CITY and find the answers they need. For while Gillian wants to save her dad’s reputation by bringing Dr. Underberg’s secrets to light, there are others who will stop at nothing to make sure they stay buried…forever.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • “With seamless writing, a thrilling plot, lots of engaging science puzzles, and remarkable characterization, Peterfreund’s exciting tale keeps the adventure solidly in the foreground. Young readers looking for a page turning quest should get into this planned series on the ground floor.” — Booklist *Starred* Review “Peterfreund’s focus on character development is complemented by the equal attention she gives to the vast underground city itself. Gillian’s instincts to protect her friends and clear her historian father’s tarnished name are admirable, but Peterfreund gives every character the opportunity to grow, revealing themselves for who they really are.”Publishers Weekly “With nonstop action, sly humor, and nothing short of the end of the world at stake, Omega City is the alpha book in a new series that mashes up mystery, scifi, and action/adventure into a thrilling novel you’ll want to devour in one sitting.

My Summer Reading List 2014

There are lots of books I still have to finish and some I’ve been wanting to get to for a while. Here is the list of books that I hope to tackle over the summer while I have all the time in the world to read.

Linger – I read Shiver and loved it, and finally I bought the paperback of the second in the series since Sinner is the most recent release.


The 5th Wave – I think I got less than half way through this and I quit. I’ve checked it out of the library numerous times, but haven’t made myself get all the way through it.

The Maze Runner – I read the first two chapters after I bought the paperback, so I need to read this before the movie comes out.


Half Bad – I think about this book about every day, so I’m going to have to reread it. One of the best I’ve read so far this year.


Dorothy Must Die – I started the first couple of chapters at the gym one day. I’ve been really excited about reading this one, so I bought it when it was on sale for Kindle.


The Martian – I’ve read a good chunk of this when I got it free in exchange for a review. It’s a bit more technical than I’m use to, but the narrative voice is so good, I want to finish it.


City of Bones – Since this is in third person, I didn’t fall in love with it, but I really do like the world that Clare has built. I have the second book in the series, and I’ve seen the movie, so I really should finish this one too.


The Program – I really enjoyed this, but I stopped reading when I had something else from the library that get me distracted. Definitely want to finish this one.
