Welcome to Undercover Reading, serial entertainment

Announcing a new LIZ COLEY BOOKS feature: my video blog featuring original short stories and serialized novels.

Up first -- please meet our first hero in The Captain's Kid.

When teenager Brandon Webb sets out on his first starship voyage, he never suspects that the fate of a failing colonial planet will depend on his courage and compassion.

Some kids dream of flying between the stars, meeting aliens, defeating a villain, and saving the world. Brandon learns how quickly these dreams can become nightmares when the starship is sabotaged, the alien knows secrets about his past, the villain is on the right side, and the world isn’t ready to be saved.
