The Recruitment (Hardback)
…Mecha Tail made it to the finals.
Then the aliens arrived, and the world changed.
James Cook lived for immersive combat simulation video games. Waging battle against other teams. Now he will have to fight for real.
It was supposed to be their finest day.
Then space ships appeared in the skies, ‘recruiting’ children, teenagers and young adults. Their bodies weren’t fully developed, their minds malleable.
The Union’s Planetary Defense force needs bodies.
They train the children of earth to be space marines, to board and attack the enemy’s ships. To be the Union’s cannon fodder in their space battles.
If there is a price to be paid, Salchar and his recruits will pay it first.
Then they learned a secret and James gained an opportunity to regain their freedom.
You’ll love James and his story because the twists and turns. The hard hitting reality of children press-ganged into a space fleet.
