After all of that discussion of series, here are some books that are a continuation of the story. First is book three of The 5th Wave. The Last Star by Rick Yancey continues the story of an alien invasion. This was an invasion that started long before anyone could have guessed as the aliens grew up and lived among us. The struggle for survival and creating a future is a popular plot line as large groups of people die and those that are left have no one to trust. Another fun aspect of this series is that book one came out as a movie in 2016.
Another series that has enjoyed popularity is Michael Vey by Richard Paul Evans. This series is on book six. Michael Vey: Fall of Hades continues the story of Michael and his unique group of friends who form the Electroclan. They have a superpower ability that has harnessed electricity. This series has relationships built on strength, hope, loyalty, and strong family.
If you are familiar with the story of Brigadoon, this may be the book for you. Shades of Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon is the third book in the Doon series. This is the story of a mystical kingdom that opens up to our characters through a special portal. What seems like a fairy tale life may be threatened by the protagonists presence and the girls have to sacrifice to save the kingdom. This book has what every good fairy tale needs, a magical kingdom, romance, and sacrifice.
