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?
Praise for The Last Stop (Book 1): Burnam has fashioned a tale in which an alien race sees us as its last hope. They're not looking for some life-saving substance, or to suck our brains out through straws. They need us - and not just anybody, but our young people to... well, why spoil it? 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.
