Overview

Set in a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future, THE ROOKIE is a story that combines the intense gridiron action of "Any Given Sunday" with the space opera style of "Star Wars" and the criminal underworld of "The Godfather." Aliens and humans alike play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that literally want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed and rival players are assassinated. Follow the story of Quentin Barnes, a 19-year-old quarterback prodigy that has been raised all his life to hate, and kill, those aliens. Quentin must deal with his racism and learn to lead, or he'll wind up just another stat in the column marked "killed on the field."

I enjoyed the spark to my imagination of the different species playing the game, and different worlds where it is played. Good read from this author. First for me, but will look for others.

If you love Sci-fi, but not a big fan of American football, you will still love this book. Scott wrote this so that someone who is unfamiliar with the game can understand it. If you are familiar with Scott's other works like Infected and Contagious but were put off by the foul language, you will be happy to note that this series is written with youth in mind, without losing any of the grittiness that is the signature of a Sigler novel. As someone who has never considered himself a football person, I highly recommend this series. GO KRAKENS!!!!!

I am not a football fan and I totally loved this book. This is not a football book with a splash of syfy. This is a syfy book with a splash of football.
