Two Brothers: Origin (A Ramtalan Trilogy)
What teenage boy doesn’t want to fit in and have friends? That’s what Argus Dachel, 17, wants more than anything, but because he’s half alien, and a New Breed, that’s not as easy as it seems. And it sure doesn’t help that he and his brother, Tai, are being pursued by a secret government agency. To top it off, now in their senior year at public high school, both boys risk exposure when Argus uses his extraordinary strength to defend himself against the school bully, falls for 16 year-old Lola and then learns that New Breeds are set for extermination by another group of hostile aliens. As government agent Max Jackson gets close to discovering the brothers’ identity and the hostile alien forces close in, what chance do Argus and Tai have of survival?

As Argus stepped out, a blast of freezing air took his breath away. Ari came back and handed him a down-filled white parka, with the same galaxy emblem, and puffy gloves. Okay, now we’re talking. Argus put it on and zipped it all the way up to his chin. The gloves were so padded that he could hardly bend his fingers, but it kept out the cold.
He squinted at the shed and saw an odd looking open boat perched on the shoreline just in front of the shed. It had wing-like structures protruding from the sides and a circular fan at the back. It was almost exactly like the one he’d seen on TV.
“Hop in,” Ari said with a grin. “Might want to put your hood on. It’s a little chilly.”
Argus climbed into a seat in the middle of the six-passenger boat and put on his hood, pulling the drawstrings tight. Couldn’t they have a closed boat? Tai probably loved the hovercraft. He never minded the heat or the cold. He said it was good to feel extreme temperatures, it made him feel alive. Well, Tai, I hope the hovercraft made you feel alive.
Aunt Celeste got in next to him. “How are you doing, Argus? I know this is all very strange.”
“I’m fine. Did my mom and dad every come to the Citadel?”
She nodded. “Your father was here once when he was interviewed by Galena and your mother was here three times. The first time was when she was a baby and the second was when she wanted to marry your father.”
Wow, his parents had been to the Citadel. They were probably scared like was. Or maybe not. Maybe they were both braver than him. But he’d never really know. His life would probably be completely different if he’d grown up with parents. “And the third time?”
