In books three and four of the multi-platform collaborative series, Team Alpha continues its dangerous interplanetary mission to save humankind from extinction, facing off against alien pirates and sea monsters (Omega Rising), giant eels (Infinity Riders), and the rival Omega team. Tense, action-packed scenes will sustain readers as they connect and sympathize with the admirable and selfless members of Team Alpha.
