This mind blowing all action finale to the ‘Insignia’ trilogy more than lives up to expectations. The author has been so clever with this series; creating a group of characters who feel so authentic and essentially real, then placing them in a future you couldn't dream of. Tom and his friends live on the edge, their abilities setting them apart yet creating the strongest of bonds between them. There really is no holding back and there are plenty of heart in mouth, gasp out loud moments to be had. With oodles of wit, daring and courage on display, this is a stimulating and exciting read. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Catalyst by S. J. Kincaid

Tom Raines is about to break through the impossible...Tom Raines and his friends return to the Pentagonal Spire for a new year, eager to continue their training for the elite Intrasolar Forces. But they soon discover troubling changes. Strict new regulations, suspicious agents in positions of power and the revelation that the Spire is under military control. The trainees are now cadets. What begins as an irritating adjustment soon reveals a dangerous shift in reality. Those in control have a ruthless agenda. And when the military academy begins welcoming suspicious new cadets, they reveal a plan with horrifying worldwide ramifications. Tom is desperate to stop it, and it seems he is not alone. But when the enemy comes for Tom, how much can he endure in the battle to save himself? In this exhilarating, explosive and heart-rending conclusion to the INSIGNIA trilogy, CATALYST puts Tom and his intelligent, passionate and brave young friends through stunning tests, dangerous confrontations and into an impossible future they could never have predicted.

About the Author

S. J. Kincaid

S. J. Kincaid is a fully trained nurse who wrote six books before Insignia was picked up to be published. She originally wanted to be an astronaut, but decided to become a full-time writer after spending a year studying in Edinburgh and living next to a haunted graveyard. Her favourite place to write is her apartment, and she has reverted back to being a lover of print books after a brief flirtation with (and expensive destruction of) an e-reader. S. J. Kincaid lives in Schaumburg, Illinois, USA.
