Alex Albrinck - book author

I am a lifelong Ohio resident, where I live with my wife and three children. When I'm not trying to be in three places at once with my active youngsters, I'm following local professional and collegiate sports teams, or possibly unscrambling a Rubik's Cube. In lieu of sleep, I read and write fiction.

My debut novel, A QUESTION OF WILL, explores themes of technological advancement, human potential (good and bad), and the love bonding a family together. It reached the Amazon Top 100 in Science Fiction -> High Tech less than a week after publication. The sequels--PRESERVING HOPE, ASCENT OF THE ALIOMENTI, and BIRTH OF THE ALLIANCE--continue to follow Will's adventures, bringing to life the technological and Energy advances he's achieved in entirely new settings.

I am currently drafting the fifth of seven novels in the series.

Alex Albrinck is the author of books: A Question of Will (The Aliomenti Saga, #1), The Aliomenti Saga Box Set (Books 1-3), Birth of the Alliance (The Aliomenti Saga, #4), Preserving Hope (The Aliomenti Saga, #2), Preserving Will (The Aliomenti Saga, #5), Ascent of the Aliomenti (The Aliomenti Saga #3), Convergence (The Aliomenti Saga, #7), Stark Cataclysm (The Aliomenti Saga, #6), The Ravagers Box Set: Episodes 1-3, Adam's Journey (The Aliomenti Saga - Book 8)

Description
01
They murdered his wife and son. They burned down his house. They beat him within an inch of his life.

And then they realized they had the wrong man.

They should have killed him when they had the chance.

Will Stark is a thirty-five-year-old self-made billionaire. He's happily married and father to a young son he adores. He's well-loved in his community for his philanthropic efforts. He lives in a beautiful home inside a private, secure community designed to provide safety for his family from those who would do them harm.

His idyllic world is shattered when, despite his best efforts, men storm his community, murder his family in their home, and burn his house down. In his efforts to rush to the aid of those he loves, Will is seized, beaten, and nearly killed.

And as it's happening, the men who've attacked him realize they've mistaken him for someone else.

Will's rescue from certain death brings him into the midst of a battle between two factions of a secret society, one in which members learn the secrets of developing superhuman abilities. And it's a battle in which a man named Will Stark has been the focal point. Will seizes the opportunity to learn these secrets, and battle those who destroyed his family. His own rapid development, however, means he may become a target for attack of his own accord.

As he builds his new life, however, Will is faced with a critical decision. Will he use his new abilities to seek out vengeance? Or will he risk everything he has to save those he holds most dear?
03
Freed from the constraints of the Aliomenti, Will Stark creates a new group, an Alliance of men and women committed to using the Energy skills they've developed and technological advances they've made to improve the lives of all.

It's an act of rebellion that won't go unnoticed--or unpunished--by the Aliomenti Elites.

Treachery, a desperate search for the resolution of his most vexing personal concern, and an incredible network of underground facilities drive Will to his own desperate decisions. He'll figure out how to bring new life into the world... but the asking price is steep.

And permanent.
04
It was his mission to save her life.
But first, he'd need to convince her that hers was a life worth saving.

Will Stark has been sent on a mission to save the life of a young woman named Elizabeth. He does not know who is threatening her, or why. He only knows that failure is not an option, for it will mean three of the most important people in his life will cease to exist.

Will finds himself in a unique medieval village, constructed deep in a forest, its residents prosperous and healthy to an unnatural degree. Their leader, a man named Arthur, weaves an alluring tale: that the supernatural abilities long thought the realm of myth or magic are real, that they can be developed with the correct usage of certain foods, to enthrall the villagers and enrich and empower himself. He believes, for he's seen people doing what he describes with his own eyes. He wants the villagers all developing such abilities, for it will mean his own power will soon expand beyond a small village hidden away out of fear of discovery.

The only issue is that they've no idea what concoction will trigger those abilities. They must test. And the villagers have put that responsibility on one young girl, against her will, threatening her health and her life in the process. Will seeks to remove young Elizabeth from this village, but she refuses, for she has a mission of her own to complete first.

Will makes his mark on the village in the woods, increasing their prosperity, and helping introduce innovations decades or centuries before their time. Yet Arthur, in his desperate need for power and control, will sabotage everything to retain his total control of the village - even if it means sacrificing his own daughter's life.

Filled with action, adventure, high-tech nano-machines, and incredible Energy abilities, Preserving Hope continues the Aliomenti Saga by taking Will Stark back to the founding of the group that would one day seek to end his life.
05
He's provided for each of them the opportunity to lead a life of health, wealth, and power far beyond their imagination. He's showed them, by personal example, that such gifts are meant to be shared, used to make the world a better place. And he's never asked them for anything in return, showing a willingness to risk even his own life to live to his own ideals.

Now Will Stark needs their help. He's helpless, he's uneducated, and he's about to meet men who can utterly destroy him.

And they'll need to make sure that's exactly what happens.

Prodded by memories and with the aid of future hindsight, they'll work tirelessly, take on alternate personalities, and ensure that the plan is carried out in its entirety. In the process, they'll learn that selfless sacrifice can demand a heavy price. They'll know that even high technology can't overcome the human spirit.

And they'll understand that, even with perfect hindsight, surprises beyond expectation can -- and do -- occur.
06
The Aliomenti village is in ruins, destroyed by one of their own, its population nearly eliminated in the calamity. From the ruins, the Aliomenti rise to international prominence, influencing buyers and sellers, warriors and bureaucrats, as they patiently and invisibly expand their empire.

Will Stark serves as the driving force behind that expansion. Whether he's directly creating their innovations or offering subtle hints to others, few of their revolutionary progressions are made without his influence.

But Will is dealing with his own private heartache. Even as he watches his fellow Aliomenti ascend to heights few of them imagined possible, his long journey becomes one he'll make very much alone. He's also haunted by the knowledge that what enables him to make that journey will also prevent him from seeing his most important mission to its completion.

Will must persevere, fighting through his own gloom, an organization that threatens to tear itself apart, and a reunion with old friends at a most inopportune time. And he'll come to realize that his own decisions, his own inability to understand even those he knows not to trust, have enabled a tyrant to seize control of the Aliomenti in the aftermath of an explosive crisis.
07
Hostility has formed over the centuries. It's grown with each Hunt, each capture, each death. It's been magnified at each effort to thwart global dominion over those unable to defend against the advance of a ruthless tyrant who won't rest until the entire world is full of those who exist solely to do his will.

Circumstances have prevented outright warfare.

Until now.

The stunning conclusion to the Aliomenti Saga, Convergence reveals who lives, who dies, and unveils the final secrets hidden for generations.
08
It is a time of unknowns for members of the Alliance. They have no information to guide their actions, no record of the key events to influence their research.

For Fil Trask and his sister, Angel, it is also a time of growing up. It is a time when they must learn the deep sacrifices it often takes to keep a family together through great trial and tribulation.

And it is a time when they will learn that your greatest fears and deepest pain can have a profound and lasting influence upon the entire world.
09
In the distant future, humanity staggers against wave after wave of population decimating catastrophes, and hope fades as the extinction point draws near.

They find a time capsule carrying with it the knowledge of the past, technology that allows them to rise above their meager existence. Within a few generations, they've built walled cities to protect them from predators they'd learned to fear, bustling commerce, and telecommunications capabilities that connect people and businesses.

They've also restored the means to make war. Two great factions control East and West, each preparing to fight while hoping war never comes. Humanity wouldn't dare fight a great war so soon after nearing extinction.

But there are some who would prefer those astonishingly low population counts. And they'll unleash a weapon unlike any other in human history to achieve those ends.

Five people with varying levels of knowledge and responsibility of those plans live their last normal day, unaware that they'll be fighting for their lives against a weapon which cannot be stopped.

But somehow, they'll all need to figure out how to survive the unleashing of... the Ravagers.
