Alexandra Monir is coming back with the sequel to The Final Six! For those, who don’t know THIS is a teen science fiction in its finest! But let’s take it in order…

If you are not familiar with Alexandra’s works Timeless and Timekeeper, shame on you! A Barnes & Noble best-seller and one of Amazon’s “Best Books of the Month”, Timeless and its sequel have been featured in a variety of media, from USA Today to teen magazines and websites such as J-14, JustJaredJr, Teen.com and Justine Magazine. So check them out as soon as you can!

As for The Final Six series, the first book has already been acquired film rights by Sony Pictures! And it’s no surprise! The book has a great concept and a lot of romance! To be more specific, it follows Leo, an Italian championship swimmer, and Naomi, a science genius from California, two of the twenty-four teens drafted into the International Space Training Camp, who are competing to become one of The Final Six (teenagers who will be sent to Jupiter’s Moon ”Europa”, in hopes of making it a safe place for mankind after erratic climate change on Earth). In order to be chosen, they’ll have to overcome obstacles and pass certain tests…

Okay, and now let’s go straight to the second part! (Warning! Spoilers for those, who haven’t read the first book yet!)

Entitled The Life Below, the sequel continues telling the story about Naomi and Leo, but this time, Naomi has to leave Leo in order to colonize Jupiter’s moon Europa, leading the way for humans to eventually leave a dying Earth…

But Naomi is still the only one in the group who knows that the leaders of the International Space Training Camp are keeping the truth from them, and it is down to her to discover whether there is alien life on Europa before they land. Back on Earth, and unbeknownst to the crew, left-behind recruit Leo Danieli works with genius doctor Greta Wagner to launch a solo mission to intercept and join Naomi’s ship in order to bring them news that not only is there definitely life on Europa, but they are set to land in its most dangerous zone…

Cool, right? Fast-paced and plot-driven, the novel decidedly veers into science fiction horror territory with plenty of scares that readers willing to suspend disbelief and embrace the teenagers-in-space setup are likely to enjoy. The syrupy romance between Leo and Naomi continues, and a new layer is added to the story with a frustratingly too-brief examination of colonization and first contact.

According to the plots of these two books, the movie should definitely be shot! Meanwhile, you can check out other works by Alexandra Monir on our biographical website! See ya soon!
