About the book

Matching numbered set of the TAKE THEM TO THE STARS series.

A History of What Comes Next (Book One): Germany, 1945. Mia, a nineteen-year-old girl, is sent by the OSS to find Wernher von Braun. Her mission: stop the Russians getting hold of Germany's - and the world's - foremost rocket scientist. Von Braun is suspicious. And so he should be. For Mia is no ordinary girl. She only looks human. And helping the Allies win the Second World War is only one part of her plan. Because there's an even darker conflict taking place on Earth. A secret struggle thousands of years old that has engulfed and taken generations of Mia's people. Can the firing of rockets finally bring about its end? Will Mia, as the last of her kind, bring the stars down to Earth? And if she succeeds, what will happen to us?

Until the Last of Me (Book Two): The First Rule is the most important: 'Always run, never fight'. For 3000 years Mia's family has shaped Earth's history to push humanity to the stars, making brutal, wrenching choices along the way. And now, in the year of 1968, Mia finds herself about to help launch the first people into space. She can't take them to the stars, not quite yet. But with her adversary almost upon her, and with the future of the planet at stake, one thing is becoming clearer: Obeying the First Rule is no longer an option. For the first time since her line's first generation, Mia will have to choose to stand her ground. But the overwhelming odds mean that she risks not only her bloodline, but also the future of the human race . . .

For the First Time, Again (Book Three): Teenager Aster barely escapes with her life when her adoptive father is killed in a shooting. Suddenly finding herself under the protection of a special US military unit, blood tests indicate that she's not even human. Unsure who or what she might be - or if any of this is true - Aster's first instinct is to flee. Soon she is caught between two warring sides: on one, her mortal enemies, the alien Trackers. And on the other, the American government. Now Aster can be certain of just two things: Her blood is more vital than she ever knew. And the fate of the world rests upon her survival . . .

About the Author

Sylvain Neuvel

Sylvain Neuvel dropped out of high school at age 15. Along the way, he has been a journalist, worked in soil decontamination, sold ice cream in California, and peddled furniture across Canada. He received a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of Chicago. He taught linguistics in India, and worked as a software engineer in Montreal. He is also a certified translator, though he wishes he were an astronaut. He likes to tinker, dabbles in robotics and is somewhat obsessed with Halloween. He absolutely loves toys; his girlfriend would have him believe that he has too many, so he writes about aliens and giant robots as a blatant excuse to build action figures (for his son, of course).
