"When we took that first step onto Pomonan soil, we thought we'd succeeded in our mission of peace. Little did we know that experiment was just beginning. And that we had a long, rough road to travel yet."
Four hundred years have passed since the arrival of the Migrants on the planet of Pomona, and the young colony has already endured generations upon generations of violence. The democratic Federation, born from the ashes of a broken government, has now been dissolved, overcome by the corrupt and fanatical Socialist Union.
What began as an interstellar experiment of peace is now proof of humankind's unique genetic affinity for war.
After decades of Union domination, Ari Kirche, a young Federation boy from seemingly insignificant origins, finds himself in a land he was never supposed to know about. In an accidental twist of fate, he discovers a secret from the past that is sure to ignite the flames of war once more.
Revolution is in the air.
Immerse yourself in a new world, written by Los Angeles local author J. C. Hammer. THE ALPINE INSURRECTION is built for fans of science fiction novels based in reality, such as The Martian (Ray Bradbury) or Leviathan Wakes (James Corey), but also for readers of dystopian young adult adventure novels, such as The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins). On your journey across the planet of Pomona, you'll travel to unknown lands, discover untold secrets, and watch a nation get pushed to the edge of rebellion.
Science fiction is only two syllables away from science. Become powered by discovery.

About the Author
My name is Jared Hammer and I'm a California local author. I've written several books, my first of which, The Alpine Insurrection, was published in April 2020 with the next one coming late 2020/early 2021. I earned a Bachelors of Science in Physical Science Education with a Minor in Astronomy from Brigham Young University, and, after a brief stint as a high school physics teacher, I joined the United States Air Force where I currently serve as an officer. My hobbies include hiking, playing trombone with my wife (we both play), and yes, long walks on the beach (with the dog and kiddo of course). Other than that, my wife and I love to explore the world, try new foods, and meet new people!
