Essence - Septima
Troy, with his irrational fears, is the least likely person to lead a war. But that doesn't mean he can escape his destiny.
A trip to New Orleans turns into something much larger when aliens called the Pirans kidnap him and his friends. A perfect doppelganger for their dead general Tohmas, Troy is thrust into the front lines of battle against Reptauran invaders. Now, the Pirans must convince their people that Tohmas rose from the dead to lead them to victory.
As it turns out, the Pirans aren’t totally wrong. Tohmas isn't quite gone—and his lingering essence has found Troy a suitable host. Troy must fight with everything he's got to save both Pira and the Earth, the Reptaurans' next likely target. As he struggles to maintain control of his own destiny, Troy knows that no matter the outcome, his life will never be the same.
Explore the mind of this unlikely hero in Essence, the first book in a new sci-fi series by Nick Braker, a coming-of-age tale full of adventure and steamy encounters.
Essence: Alta (Volume 2)
Troy is no longer himself. Kidnapped by the aliens known as Pirans, infected with the essence of the dead General Tohmas, Troy grasps at his only hope of survival. He merges his soul with the alien parasite trying to possess him, leaving him forever changed—and not entirely for the worse. Once plagued by crippling phobias, Troy is now fearless, willing to fight his enemies with his bare hands.
But with this new strength also comes a new weakness: women. Tohmas was notorious for his insatiable desires, and Troy finds himself constantly resisting temptation—especially the gorgeous, manipulative Alta. Although Alta has convinced the Pirans she’s helping them prepare to battle the murderous Reptaurens, she’s actually meticulously planning to steal their ultimate power source and then abandon them to their fate.
Alta won’t hesitate to kill anyone in her way, and her deep love for Tohmas is Troy’s only advantage. He convinces Alta that Tohmas has taken full control of his being and thus keeps her trust and his life.
While Alta schemes, Troy covertly struggles to save the Pirans and prevent the Reptaurens from invading Earth—but first he must wrest back control of his own soul.
