The Rayatana Series


Title: Liftoff

Subtitle: The Rayatana Series, Book 1


A spaceship in disguise,

An Earth girl searching for a sense of home,

And a Thousand Years’ War between alien races,

All collide on a summer afternoon.

An old movie theater welcomes Amaya in and wraps her up in the smell of popcorn and licorice. But one sunny afternoon during a matinee, the movie screen goes dark. The theater rumbles.

Amaya gets trapped in the middle of an ancient alien conflict. Angry and frightened, Amaya entangles herself in a life-changing cultural misunderstanding with Sol, a young alien who keeps omitting key information, even while they’re on the run from his enemies.

What will it take to survive a battle between alien races involved in an ancient war?

Liftoff is a fast-paced read for fans of Code 8, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Cobra Kai.

Held for crimes against the Neutral Zone, Amaya’s team may fall apart while she wrestles with her powers.

Amaya is supposed to bring peace to the galaxy. Which is tough when she’s being held for crimes against the Neutral Zone. Her imprisonment is on her own ship with her own crew. But close quarters create tension.

Honestly, her role as Rayatana is a mess.

She may never get to use her powers for anything good. Not if her teacher continues to keep secrets, and not if her powers keep harming others. Putting her mother in a coma should put her in prison, but she has a mission. She wants to bring peace to her people. She needs to become the Rayatana.

In this second instalment of The Rayatana Series, the people groups of the Neutral Zone come together to see if they believe Amaya is truly the Rayatana, a prophesied figure who will bring either peace or war to the galaxy. Amaya’s adventures delve into her internal struggle with fear and her need to understand her past so she can choose the direction of her future. Alien people groups, fast and furious world-building, and unexpected twists take readers on a page-turning ride while keeping the descriptions light for reluctant teen readers.
