Frontier Incursion is the first book in the Frontier series.
“For Shanna, joining the Scout Corps had been a dream come true. The Scouts were charged with expanding their knowledge of Frontier, a hostile planet their ancestors had crashlanded on 300 years before. As the youngest in her class, Shanna struggles to find acceptance and respect amongst her older peers – a task made more difficult by the fact that she has not just one, but two of the colonists’ huge feline companions, their starcats.
On a routine patrol, she and the other cadets are swept up in the greatest challenge yet to be faced by the settlers of Frontier. Now they find themselves on the very frontline of a war they knew nothing about, and possibly the Federation of Race’s last chance against the hostile Garsal. Suddenly their world has changed, and in ways never dreamed of by Shanna and her fellow scouts.”
Reviews of Frontier Incursion have included these comments:
“This is by far, one of the best teen novels I have read in recent times. Unlike the other books I’ve been seeing in this genre, this book has great characters that literally pull you into the story, a captivating and spellbinding plot, and some of the most uniquely believable reactions to situations that characters face. By the end of the book, I really felt like I was there on the adventure with them, and man…I want a Space Cat!!”
“The pacing of the novel is essentially perfect and from about a third of the way through I found myself sneaking every chance I could get to read it in order to get to the next bit and the next… the author built tension and climax skillfully…. It is just as any good fiction book really should be.”
