“With this story we really wanted to prove to not only the world, but to ourselves that anything is possible if you work hard and never lose hope,” says Raymond.

In their science fiction novel “Kinetic: The First Alliance” (published by iUniverse) – which is getting a revived marketing push – authors Herro Raymond and Laz Matech tell the story of a brutal alien race threatening to invade Earth, and the group of young heroes tasked with saving it.
To Alex Carter, life as an adolescent is no different than any other normal kid; he is just trying to find his place in the world. But his world soon becomes far from normal when an alien visits him, telling him that Earth is in danger and that he is the only one who can save it. He is taken to a training ground where he and a small group of other superheroes are taught to use their kinetic abilities. They also must discover their secret purpose as the saviors of humanity.
An excerpt from “Kinetic”:
“I really didn’t think I could despise you anymore, but once again, you’ve proved me wrong.”
Cassie’s mom raised her hand high and slapped her daughter across the face with such ferocity that the strike echoed throughout the entire house. A stream of blood trickled down from Cassie’s lip. Without wiping it away, Cassie raised her face and looked her mom straight in the eyes.
“The first one is free, Mother. The next one will cost you.”
Raymond and Matech believe “Kinetic” will be entertaining to fans of science fiction, but they also believe there is a lesson to take away from the book. “With this story we really wanted to prove to not only the world, but to ourselves that anything is possible if you work hard and never lose hope,” says Raymond. “We are blessed to have incredible friends and family that supported us every step of the way, and this book is dedicated to them.”
