SpaceHive is FREE today
Who is Jason Anderson?
Meet Jason Anderson from SPACEHIVE.
Jason Anderson is a red-headed 12-year-old boy with a big heart and a keen mind. Jason likes music, science and his neighbor's dog Freedom. His father is a biochemist. His mother is a stay-at-home librarian who wears Betty Boop aprons. There is a baby brother born in an underground bunker while Jason and his Indian friend Aadab Ali join forces on the plains of India to defeat the dreadful alien General Vard and his Wasps.
Jason becomes a teen while held prisoner in the alien ship SpaceHive. The music stored on his Personal Audio Device (PAD) incites the alien Bees to revolt against the General and the Black Watch. Jason likes new instruments like the ZitherCom and he loves to play Guitar Mozart. His mother's choice of Brahm's Third Symphony, though, is the deciding melody which calms the Apian Way.
Jason's friendship with three worker Bees arises from this classical motif and not the Three Black Skulls of Jason's generation.
Jason's long red hair, green eyes, young age, and slim stature make him less than a heroic figure to Aadab Ali, who at first is delighted to find an "American" freedom fighter with "reinforcements" who will help win the Battle of India. Aadab soon finds out that Jason is alone and frightened, captive in the SpaceHive with only a ZipPAD and his scientific brain and education to overcome General Vard and the Wasps.
Aadab also finds out the difference between Canadians and Americans! Jason Anderson and his family, there is no doubt about it, are proudly Canadian.
SPACEHIVE is available FREE Dec. 26-28, 2012 for Kindle all over the world.
