SynopsisWhat teenage boy doesn’t want to fit in and have friends? That’s what Argus Dachel, 17, wants more than anything, but because he’s half alien, and a New Breed, that’s not as easy as it seems. And it sure doesn’t help that he and his brother, Tai, are being pursued by a secret government agency. To top it off, now in their senior year at public high school, both boys risk exposure when Argus uses his extraordinary strength to defend himself against the school bully, falls for 16 year-old Lola and then learns that New Breeds are set for extermination by another group of hostile aliens. As government agent Max Jackson gets close to discovering the brothers’ identity and the hostile alien forces close in, what chance do Argus and Tai have of survival?

Review:I would like to thank the author and Promotional Book Tours for allowing me a copy of this book in exchange for a review.
It has been awhile since I've read any sci-fi. In fact I believe the last thing was Star Trek: The Stuff of Dreams. It's more science fiction than fantasy, but really soft science fiction. If anything, it would be more Young Adult, than true hard-core science fiction. Despite that, it was a great book. The book started off and just kept progressing. It wasn't one of those books that drags on, the author kept things fresh and enjoyable to read.
The cliff-hanger at the end was slightly expected, however, I still want to read the sequel and see how things go from there....will it progress like I expect?
