About this title
"It didn’t begin with a bang or a boom..." Told in a tongue-in-cheek style with sardonic commentary playfully interrupting the narrative, KnightWatchers pays homage to the old Saturday matinee serials and Science-Fantasy adventures from our youth. It tells the story of plucky fourteen-year-old Alayna who is searching the galaxy for a stolen crystal that has enough power to either create an entire solar system ... or destroy one. Her search brings her to a flying pirate ship where she meets Alabam, a scrappy teenage space-pirate with a funny name whose appetite for fighting is only outmatched by his love for food. Together, the two attempt to retrieve the crystal from the clutches of the villainous (and not to mention, 'pompous') Captain Scorpion. Their adventure then takes them to Tecmonian Institute, a training school for the next generation of Astro-Militia. Here, Alabam finds himself in a league of teenaged guardians where he meets Wheeler-2 Maverick (a young and cocky ‘Ace’ pilot) and Flash – a teenage alien boy who has all the powers of a neutron star. Along his journey, Alabam must not only seek peace with his past, but must also learn that there is indeed strength in vulnerability. With quirky characters and a story that combines elements of Sci-Fi, fantasy, and cliffhangers, KnightWatchers puts a new twist on a futuristic story.
