Magic and Adventure Unite in Evan D. Heuker's New YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy Novel THE UNCOVERING

LIVONIA, Mich. - Michimich -- Blending science fiction, adventure, and fantasy, The Uncovering, book one in the Warriors Legacy series, follows a group of teenagers with superhero powers as they battle against a race of lizards ravaging the galaxy.

"I've always enjoyed the two genres," says author Evan D. Heuker when asked how he approached writing a fantasy world and a futuristic sci-fi world. "I was once at a summer writers' camp and the instructor said that I couldn't combine the two; instead of quitting I decided to prove him wrong. Dragons and elves and other mythical creatures in space sounded cool to me so that's what I set out to do. The lore that I've worked on really helps to explain the mixture of the two but essentially some planets excelled in technology faster than others which is where the sci-fi comes in, and the other races that were slower and focused more on magic have more of the fantasy element."

When war is rekindled on planet Rhybannon, sixteen-year-old Ezmer is forced from his home. Now he and his group of newly acquired friends are on the run, caught up in an age-old war with the Daigatons. When they find eight magical necklaces that once belonged to great warriors who protected the universe, they soon discover that the necklaces are more than they appear. Will this new team of heroes be able to use their newfound powers to end the war and save their universe?
