Powers Molinar's debut YA sci-fi novel, Spartanica, was published in October 2013. It's the first part of The Survivors of Sapertys series.
Ty and Marcus Mitchell are average school brothers growing up in a suburb north of Chicago until one night when they're hurtled through an inter-dimensional gateway to a parallel world defined by its multiple moons and planet-wide apocalypse.
As they struggle to understand where they are and how to get home, the boys encounter refugees of "the last day" from the city of Atlantis and a girl called Bellana, the sole survivor and resident of the massive city of Spartanica.
Ty and Marcus soon learn they only have seven days to get home. But before they can leave, they must battle through long-extinct deadly predators, find the elusive Professor Otherblood (if he's still alive), and rescue a new friend from certain death.
Is all of this insanity just Ty's overactive imagination or are the brothers truly on the brink of being stranded in the brutal wasteland known as Spartanica?
About Powers Molinar
Powers Molinar grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago and earned engineering and business degrees at the University of Iowa. While he works as a process engineer and project manager during the day, his passion is writing science fiction. His first novel, Spartanica, is the culmination of several year's of part-time effort mostly late at night and on weekends when he wasn't enjoying time with his wife and kids, all of whom were big helpers getting Spartanica written.
Powers' dream is to write sci-fi full-time and to get to know the readers of his books. Reading excellence, being creative, and achieving success are goals Powers holds for every kid and he hopes his books are a helpful, entertaining part of every reader's experience.
