There was the park to play in, and the river to sail on. There were trees to climb and ruins to explore.But then, when you were 12 years old, you were taken away to fight the Mael. Huge, monstrous aliens. The most ruthless enemy man has ever faced.Few soldiers returned alive. Most were killed in battle, or tortured horribly on a distant, hostile world.Alex knows his duty. He knows he must fight, and scream, and die.For what is one boys death, against the survival of a whole species?The Mael is a coming-of-age adventure story, with thrilling battles, an emerging romance, an edge-of-the-seat escape, and scenes of immense personal courage. It contains monstrous and pitiless aliens, sustained and explicit torture, and acts of desperate heroism.Though its set in a future dystopia, these people are certainly not playing games. And neither are they fighting battles from the safety of a virtual reality distance. In The Mael, kids are literally thrown into the jaws of the wolf.
