AEGIS RISING chronicles the journey of five teenage protagonists who are cast into a life-altering adventure after their plane crash-lands in a remote forest in northern Canada. The novel has won rave reviews from advance readers across the globe and is now a No.1 Best Seller on Amazon’s list for Young Adult Science-fiction Mystery.


Buffalo, WY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/18/2014 -- Three years in the making, AEGIS RISING, a sci-fi adventure novel by author S.S. Segran was launched last fall. The novel recently received five-star reviews and recommendations from prominent reviewers. One such review by The US Review of Books which gave the book a ‘recommended’ badge states, “A title like this is screaming for adaptation as a successful film…” Reviews from readers have also been overwhelmingly positive. As one reader, Michael Beas, a bestselling author himself surmised, “As a fantasy fiction writer I have to admit that I am a harsher critic when it comes to novels in this genre. Books in this class I feel should be able to captivate the imagination and place you in a different realm. AEGIS RISING accomplishes that and a whole lot more. It is truly a classic in the making!” AEGIS RISING is now a No.1 Bestseller on Amazon ahead of notable New York Times Bestselling authors.

The four-hundred and fifty page novel is the culmination of an idea that began when the author was a seventh grade student. When asked how it all got started, S.S.Segran, who was recently interviewed on Global News (http://globalnews.ca/video/971446/young-bc-author-releases-first-novel) responded, “I’ve been a keen reader from a young age, however I definitely did not think I’d actually write a novel. I guess the first telltale sign was when I was seven or eight and I would try to write extensions to the final chapters of books that I’d read because I didn’t want them to end. Then when I was about twelve or thirteen, I came up with an idea for a story where five friends get washed up on the shore of an island after a freak storm separates them from their families while on a boating trip. There were talking animals in it and the story didn’t get very far! But it established a sort of groundwork for what evolved to become Aegis Rising. The talking animals didn’t make it out of that island!” She laughed. “But I did find a way to bring some real cool creatures and intriguing characters into this novel.” The author is currently working on Book Two of the series which is expected to be published in November, 2014
