Sentinels: Children of Valhalla -- (Sentinels Saga, Book #1)
Space Opera focusing on its young protagonists' fraught experiences as they move from students to full participants in a galactic war. -- sf-encyclopedia.com
-- Too Young To Die --
Upon reaching seventeen years of age, all residents of the planet Valhalla are required to serve in the Sentinel Fleet. It's a fate young Robin and her friends must live with; chances of surviving their enlistments are bleak. Countless Sentinels have already perished in a war that has lasted for over a century, and with each succeeding generation, hopes for an end to the conflict diminish. Relentless combat between the Sentinels and their longtime enemy has only resulted in a lengthy stalemate. But when Robin's battalion is selected to receive special training, a series of events is set into motion that will shake things up on both sides of the conflict. The Sentinels are faced with an unexpected threat... and defeat may be closer for them than they realize. Book #1 in the Sentinels Saga. The Sentinels will return in Childhoods Lost.
Though doting parents often teach their children the futility of violence, every rational human being also understands the hypocrisy inherent in such lessons, since life surrounds us with countless examples of practical solutions wrought in savagery. While each act of brutality inevitably debases all humankind, a maladjusted minority also recognize in it a tempting potential to make quick return on a prized reward. Perspective, then, becomes a matter of outcomes. Most of us will experience violence demeaning; few of us will know violence redeeming.

Have a frighteningly good time reading "They Walk", "The Tollbooth", and "Defile".

One Block at a Time
Jack is stuck in a video game! And not just any video game. He's stuck in his own modded version of Minecraft in a new world he created called 'Vortexia' moments before a solar flare back in the real world somehow transported him into his school's new virtual reality system! Being inside this pixelated world is weird--Jack is a real boy with a real flesh and blood body surrounded by a digital world! It's a darned good thing that he ran into the famous Steve and Alex. Otherwise, he probably wouldn't survive the first night!
As Jack struggles ...
Magic lessons are starting up for Brian: a much-needed distraction from the tragedy over the summer. But the dead rising from their graves is perhaps too much of a distraction. Now Brian and his friends must work out what is happening and why. Does it have something to do with the Stone of Surzaal, a fabled emerald with the power to grant near-immortality? Who is the six-fingered man? And what exactly is the 'silver dragon'?
