It’s been five years since Mickey passed the Europans’ test, saving the Europans and planet Earth. Pam and David are living on Europa in a wondrous habitat where anything seems possible, and have twins with unusual abilities. Earth is transforming into a Utopian paradise thanks to the Sphere, an alien hard drive filled with advanced technology gifted to Earth by the Europans. But Mickey, who chose to remain on Earth, suspects the Europans of having a secret, more sinister agenda. When he severs his connection to the Sphere and begins to investigate, Mickey is captured by the Sphere Cult and put on trial for his life... The second book in the thrilling YA sci-fi series from Michael H. Burnam, The Next Step, asks what happens when Evolution progresses to immortality?

See for yourself in this tale of teen life and love in 21st century LA, meeting and saving alien beings desperate to have what we've got.

He began writing in 2010, and THE LAST STOP is his first novel. Book II of The Last Stop Series is due out in September, with two more to follow:  Europa, and the grand finale, Return. 1947, another young adult Sci Fi novel focusing on the Roswell UFO event, and The Phial (think Indiana Jones meets Contagion) are new novels available for pre-publication preview.

His first novel, THE LAST STOP, is a breath of fresh air for Young Adult fiction offering a blend of hardcore science and philosophy with just the right dash of humor. Young adult readers will appreciate THE LAST STOP’s action-packed pace, spectacular visuals, and relatable characters.  And yes, it has a happy ending (with three more books in the series). Who says a feel good story can’t be classic Sci-fi?
