Synopsis

Meteorite Strike by A.G. Taylor

Sarah and Robert are sure their number is up when their aeroplane crashes over the Australian desert. But this is no ordinary air disaster. A meteorite strike has impacted Earth, bringing with it a deadly alien disease. Thousands fall victim to the virus, falling into a deep coma. Luckily, Robert and Sarah appear to be unaffected - until they begin to exhibit some extraordinary psychic side-effects. This quickly makes them a target for HIDRA, a rogue international agency determined to experiment on them like lab rats in an attempt to control their superpowers. Before long, the children are captured in HIDRA's secret desert HQ, a prison for superhuman kids who can control fire, create storms and tear steel with their minds. This new generation of superheroes must join forces if they are to escape HIDRA. But what kind of world awaits them outside?

About the Author

A.G. Taylor

I was born in New Zealand, but grew up in Norfolk, England. Since then I’ve lived all over: South Korea, Poland, Australia - even some really exotic locations like Nottingham and Sheffield. The list goes on.

Yes, for the last 10 years I’ve been living the glamorous, thrilling and sometimes unhygienic life of a jet-setting teacher...

I never gave up on my dream of becoming a published writer. Now, thanks to some very nice people at Usborne, my first book - Meteorite Strike - is being published in January, 2010 with the sequel - Alien Storm - to follow later in the year.
