Isaac
Comett: My Life as a Shard Knight
by
R.T. Driver
Genre:
YA SciFi Fantasy
 
It’s
2003, and the coldest of seasons has arrived, filled with monsters,
robots and dead beat dads.

 

 

Isaac
believed his only job was to blow off homework, play video games and
get a date with his crush, the cunning local delinquent June Farnell;
not defend his hometown from vicious space pirates!

 

 

On
one Fall afternoon, he and his friends are attacked by aliens seeking
the Memorite Shards; crystals that grant the user superpowers. His
comfortable life with his mom and younger brother is gone, and he’s
forced to fight a secret war against the merciless Cyborg, Straum.
Even when they gain the shard’s protection, more questions about
their unyielding attackers arise, and their only source for answers
is another shady alien, and fellow Memorite user, Chenzo.

 

 

Lying
to his mom and swinging a sword become Isaac’s new life as he, June
and the others train to become Shard Knights; defenders of the
Memorite. Unfortunately for him, he’s the team’s weakest link, and
surviving the one year bonding period to the crystal seems less
likely with each battle. And what’s worse, his estranged father Zack
is back in town after a year long hiatus, ready to “set things
right”…again.

 

 

Will
Isaac defeat Straum’s army of mechanical warriors, save his family
and live long enough to put on his graduation cap, or will Comett
burn out like so many others before him?

 

 

Join
Isaac, June, the slick talking Austin, his brainy beauty girlfriend
Emma, and the comic-book obsessed Fiora in this epic sci-fi rumble
and see what being a hero is REALLY all about!

 

 

-Realistic
characters of different races and backgrounds that deal with true to
life issues, such as school drama, dating, divorced parents and
neglect.

 

 

-No
lengthy, needless descriptions make for a satisfying
read.

 

 

-Immersive,
over-the-top action influenced by video games, anime, and science
fiction movies while seasoned with emotional encounters throughout.
Feel like a part of a super hero team!

Isaac
Comett: Interstellar Warrior
 
Isaac,
June, Austin and the others are halfway through their bonding period
with the powerful Memorite Crystals, but their adventure is far from
over.

 

 

Fighting
Androids and Seekers has become second nature to the team, but their
unity is put to the test when personal feelings from a bad breakup
get in the way of being heroes. With graduation only weeks away,
their parents growing suspicious of their activities, and two of the
warriors ready to rip each other’s heads off, it seems like things
couldn’t get worse…

 

 

But
they do.

 

 

Isaac
and the others depart for the world of Rudesia to Recall the
remaining Shards. There’s no rest for the tired friends, as not only
do they have a rich, stuck-up Count on their tails, but complications
from a new, less welcome addition to their group.

 

 

The
chance for an early freedom and end to the Memorite War has come!
Will Isaac’s emotional wounds heal in time, or will they lead to a
deathblow for the Shard Knights?

in the city of Milford with his hard-working mother and “too

employment to have more time for his wife and personal
pursuits.

 

 

Ever
since his exposure to Japanese Animation and author Christopher
Wooding’s Broken Sky, R.T. created many unused manuscripts that were
better off not seeing the light of day. The first project he released
was Isaac Comett: My Life as a Shard Knight in 2014, then re-released
the series after heavy edits in 2017.
