Battle For Forever: Prelude (Book 1)
Alexander Grant is about to take his 3000th history test. You know how you feel like you’ve been going to school for a thousand years? Well, he actually has. No one in his school has any idea that—although he looks fifteen—he’s actually a hundred times that old. That is, until Alexander is used as bait to catch the only man capable of stopping a plan that would change humanity forever. More
Okay, first off, if you’re reading this, I’m breaking about a dozen rules here. Easy. I’ll probably get grounded for it. And by grounded, I don’t mean I’ll have to stay in my room unable to go out the next twenty-five Saturday nights, I mean, grounded. Into dust. And buried under a thousand pounds of rock.

Alexander Grant is about to take his 3000th history test. You know how you feel like you’ve been going to school for a thousand years? Well, he actually has. No one in his school has any idea that—although he looks like a normal teenager—he’s actually 1500 years old. Not the girl he likes. Not his best friend. No one. That is until someone tries to kidnap Alexander and use him as bait to catch his father, the only man capable of stopping a plan that would change humanity forever.
