Overview

17 year old Alex Detail has been kidnapped and sent off to fight in a hopeless war against The Harvesters, an alien force that is trying to extinguish Earth's Sun.

Unfortunately for Alex's kidnappers (and the world) he has lost the mega IQ that allowed him to win the last war with The Harvesters ten years ago when he was just 7 years old.

But now the House of Nations is out of options. The end of life is imminent.

Alex must save his ship, fight his evil clone and survive the war long enough to make it to Pluto, where, underneath the planets frozen surface lies the only force in the solar system that can stop The Harvesters.

"With Alex Detail, Darren Campo has created the rare hero that stands alongside Luke Skywalker and Spiderman as a timeless everyman hero that crosses all generations. So buy this book and hold on."

What People Are Saying

Tom DeSanto
With Alex Detail, Darren Campo has created the rare hero that stands alongside Luke Skywalker and Spiderman as a timeless everyman hero that crosses all generations. So buy this book and hold on. (Tom DeSanto, Writer/Producer X-Men, Transformers)
Jeff Schweitzer
Alex Detail's Revolution is an outstanding book - compelling, thought-provoking, and fun all at the same time. In some ways Darren Campo has created a mythical, fanciful alternate-reality counterpart of Beyond Cosmic Dice. (Jeff Schweitzer, former White House Science Advisor, Author of Beyond Cosmic Dice and Vote to Save the Planet.)
Ken Wheaton
Alex Detail's Revolution starts out as if Douglas Adams had decided to write Ender's Game. But what develops isn't cosmic lark as much as a riveting thriller that delves into examinations of time, space and, interestingly, the human capacity for faith - or the lack thereof. (Ken Wheaton, Advertising Age, author or First Annual Grand Prairie Rabbit Festival)

    Smart action packed adventure

    I was really impressed with this book. Darren Campo manages to write an exciting adventure story that also gets at larger themes, like creation and destiny. Alex Detail as a character is unique - a teenager who is brilliant, but who already knows his best days are past. Both cocky and self-doubting, he gets us identifying with him - and rooting for him to save the world (again). I was really impressed with Campo's world building - Alex Details's future Earth is alive with details that makes you feel as if everything surrounding this story could be real. Someday. I look forward to see what comes next for both Mr. Campo and Mr. Detail.
