In the near future, aliens start a sky war on earth, nearly destroying the human race, and plunging them into a dystopian future of death and despair. Further complicating what the COVID plague and climate change have already done.

Survive the Sky Wars or die trying.
Aero wakes up in 2044 at the peak of the Sky Wars. He can't remember who he is or where he came from. He has no family, no friends, no place in the world…nothing to lose. To his surprise, the factions in District Two are all fighting for power, what little they have, and he is in the center of it all.
Drafted into the Assassins Academy, Aero discovers there’s one thing he’s even better at than being a teenager without his memory, and that’s killing the enemy. Wrapped in a superpowered Assassin garb, Aero finds purpose amidst the horror and destruction of the Sky Wars, and the opportunity for a new sort of friends and family… if he can break the defences of the Assassin garb.
There are elements of this story I absolutely loved! Right from the first sentence, the story grabs hold of you and takes you on a wild ride. "Missing a kill shot is never a fortunate thing."
Assassin Rising has got to be one of my favorite science fiction books. It's a quick read, but is packed with great scenes.

A well told - and imaged - tale announces the arrival of a fine new, imaginative author of fantasy books. Watch this young author grow!
What I especially enjoyed was the drawing made by the author. They are amazing!
If you’re looking for something cool to offer to young readers – or even to read yourself – try Heroes of Atlantis: Legend of the Dragon Runes. Easy to read, highly entertaining, and a lot to offer to readers who enjoy fantasy tales, this is a strong story written beautifully by Ryan Carriere.
