Series: Prequel to Visitor
Author: Wayne Meyers
Publisher: Independent
Genre: Science Fiction

About the Book

Aldrea, the feisty daughter of a Quenterian scientist, agrees to accompany her parents on a routine mission with mixed emotions. It was better than another resort vacation but lacks the adventure and excitement she craves. So when her father is taken prisoner by a deranged Radical agent on a deserted planet, Aldrea doesn’t think twice – she goes after them.

But time is running out. With the greatest discovery in Quenterian history in the balance, Aldrea must rescue herself first before the prize they seek kills them all.


The story opens perfectly with an introduction to the people and the mission, and dives immediately into the action and drama of a young woman taking her safety in her own hands to rescue her abducted father. Meyers executes the tale with attention to detail to provide the perfect ratio of plot and world building without over-informing the reader.

About the Author

Wayne discovered his love for writing at ten years old when he wrote a story where the flowers from his bed sheets came to life. With a voracious appetite for science-fiction and fantasy, it was only natural he turned his pen toward these genres, creating bold new worlds filled with exciting, interesting characters doing incredible things.

In addition to reading and writing science fiction and fantasy, Wayne enjoys spending time with his family, walking, helping other aspiring authors, and volunteering in his community. His latest favorite TV show is Zoo, and if you play just about any of the Marvel Universe movies, there’s a good chance he’ll stop what he’s doing to watch.
