Summary: Unraveling myths is messy … but the lies have to die for humanity to survive. Twin spirits born a decade apart, Velia and Virgil are bored by their trivial teenage lives, sensing they’re meant for so much more.  Velia's mother wants to wrap her in a straightjacket of protective love, while Virgil's father wants him to follow in his violent footsteps.  But the arrival of a mythical video game and the forced exile to a wilderness camp for troubled kids will turn their worlds upside down. Neither teen knows this is a test to see if they’re ready to fulfill their destiny and join humanity’s secret alien ally in preventing the end of the universe.  For these siblings of synchronicity to succeed, they'll have to capture, contain, or kill a high-value target of an opposing alien force bent on conquering Earth. Desperate for a life on their own terms, Velia and Virgil must complete brutal trials to learn why they're uniquely capable of saving all life in the universe. Will their families hold them back? And what about the sadistic one-eyed man determined to stand in their way? If he doesn't kill them, the truth will.

Summary: Trusting an alien is hard ... figuring out which alien is trustworthy might be impossible. Marcus carries the weight of the cosmos on his shoulders. Still, he loves being one of the chosen enrolled in the alien-driven education tract at his university. This extraterrestrial Federation always said he was important, so they’re taking the next logical step by inviting him to join their mysterious research Cohort. If he survives selection, Marcus will solidify himself as one of the elites tasked with preparing humanity to face an alien Confederation bent on enslaving Earth. The simulated realities he experiences during this Subsumption research creates critical data the Federation needs to understand human nature, choice, and to integrate worlds. But the alien experimentation proves more physically, mentally, and emotionally taxing than Marcus ever imagined, pushing him to the breaking point. As the doomsday clock continues its countdown to the Confederation’s invasion, Marcus is running out of time to get his personal life in order. Can he live up to his family’s idea of always moving forward? Or will he sink humanity's chance to reach the stars? Either way, Marcus is learning what the Federation already knows: the ability to choose is the most powerful force in the universe. If the conspiracy theories are right, though, he might be aligning with the wrong aliens. Subsumption is the first novel in the Subsumption Series, a story about humanity's pivotal position between two warring alien empires.
