Alive

Book one of the Generations Trilogy

"I open my eyes to darkness. Total darkness. I hear my own breathing, but nothing else. I lift my head ... it thumps against something solid and unmoving. There is a board right in front of my face. No, not a board ... a lid."
A teenage girl awakens to find herself trapped in a coffin. She has no idea who she is, where she is, or how she got there. Fighting her way free brings little relief-she discovers only a room lined with caskets and a handful of equally mystified survivors. Beyond their room lies a corridor filled with bones and dust, but no people ... and no answers.
She knows only one thing about herself-her name, M. Savage, which was engraved on the foot of her coffin-yet she finds herself in charge. She is not the biggest among them, or the boldest, but for some reason the others trust her. Now, if they're to have any chance, she must get them to trust one another.
Whatever the truth is, she is determined to find it and confront it. If she has to lead, she will make sure they survive. Maybe there's a way out, a rational explanation, and a fighting chance against the dangers to come. Or maybe a reality they cannot comprehend lies just beyond the next turn.
Rezension
"Suspenseful ...( Alive) lives up to its hype, packing plenty of thrills." (Entertainment Weekly)
"Fascinating and intriguing ... a cross between Lord of the Flies and The Maze Runner and yet ... so much more." (Fresh Fiction)
"A ripping, claustrophobic thunderbolt of a novel, Scott Sigler's Alive gives us an unforgettable young hero who must find the inner strength to lead without knowing where she is, who she is, and how bitterly the odds are stacked against her." (Pierce Brown, New York)
"Sigler has created a wonderful and engrossing character in M. Savage. Strong and smart, but with the naïveté and misgivings of any teenage girl, she's someone you'll definitely want on your side when s hits the fan, which it most certainly does." (Veronica Belmont, host of Sword & Laser)
"A tense, unsettling page-turner of a story-both deeply strange and wildly compelling." (Cherie Priest, author of Boneshaker and Maplecroft)
Portrait
Scott Sigler schrieb seine erste Geschichte zu Schulzeiten und hat seither nicht damit aufgehört. Seine Romane, Kurzgeschichten und Drehbücher befassen sich vorwiegend mit dem zweischneidigen Schwert der modernen Wissenschaft, die zumeist gleichzeitig Gutes wie Schlechtes hervorbringt. Scott erfand das Verlagswesen neu, indem er EarthCore ursprünglich als ersten exklusiven Podcast-Roman in zwanzig Episoden veröffentlichte, die auf Anhieb rund 10.000 Abonnenten fanden. Mittlerweile wurden bereits über drei Millionen Dateien seiner Werke heruntergeladen. Berichte über ihn erschienen unter anderem in der Washington Post, der Business Week, bei CNet, The Book Standard, MacWorld und in der landesweiten Radiosendung The Dragon Page. Scott stammt aus Michigan und lebt mit seiner Frau Jody und mit den beiden Hunden Mookie und Emma in San Francisco.
