TRADE REFERENCES
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY for ALIVE by Scott Sigler
"The suspenseful first installment in Sigler’s Generations trilogy lives up to its hype, packing plenty of thrills into its 300-plus pages. The novel follows the adventures of M. Savage—known as Em—a spunky kid who awakens to discover that she’s been sealed in a coffin, with no idea how she got there. Clawing her way out, she finds herself in a room lined with caskets, most of them filled with dead kids. But there are a few other survivors, and before long Em is leading them on a desperate search for answers in an alien world. Em’s brash mix of adolescent emotions and inner courage makes for a compelling protagonist, and Sigler lets readers make their most important discoveries through her eyes. It’s a page-turner that whets the appetite for volume 2. A–"

ESPN for THE ROOKIE by Scott Sigler
“THE ROOKIE is a wild ride that takes football to the next level. Set in a future day of corruption, bigger bodies and bigger stakes, it’s Rollerball between the white lines and a fascinating read.”
— John Clayton, ESPN NFL Analyst.

SPORTS ILLUSTRATED for THE STARTER by Scott Sigler
“While so many have pondered the future of pro football, none have rendered it quite like this. Thrives as both a sports work and as a work of sci-fi.”
— L. Jon Wertheim, Sports Illustrated senior writer
