A new life in Alaska.
A massive aurora.
A spaceship hidden under the ice and snow.
For Hawk and Zach Callahan, getting to the small town of Salmon Run presents the first challenge. From the moment they arrive the locals freely share their opinions. While still in Cordova an old prospector declares the two cheechakos unprepared for the realities of an Alaskan winter and goes about fixing it. A failed sled-dog takes an unwelcome liking to Hawk, giving rise to an old phobia. The young native Sasha attaches herself to Zach, much to his disgust. They think they have it made when they board the unique train that will take them through a dark roadless wilderness to their new home.
The same night a massive display of the Aurora Borealis lights up the sky.
Resulting in the Solar Express train powering down all by itself, stranding its passengers.
Only, the energetic aurora affected something else out in the wilderness.
Welcome to Salmon Run, Alaska! A place of wild animals, wild lands, and wild inhabitants…oh, and native legends come alive and an interplanetary alien conflict at their backdoor. A fun contemporary science fiction series for teens, young adults, and adults of all ages.
