Set in a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future, THE ROOKIE is a story that combines the intense gridiron action of “The Blindside” with the space opera style of “Star Wars” and the criminal underworld of “The Godfather.”
Aliens and humans alike play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that literally want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed and rival players are assassinated.
Follow the story of Quentin Barnes, a 19-year-old quarterback prodigy that has been raised all his life to hate, and kill, those aliens. Quentin must deal with his racism and learn to lead, or he’ll wind up just another stat in the column marked “killed on the field.”
In this final episode of THE ROOKIE, the Krakens duke it out against the Earthlings. The winner moves on to Tier One — the loser goes home, the season a failure. Can Quentin and his teammates achieve their season-long goal?
Dan, Akbar and Tarat the Smasher debate the pending game playoff game between Ionath and Texas.
The Krakens are in the playoffs, which means Quentin's first-ever trip to Earth for tilt against the Texas Earthlings at Hudson Bay Stadium.
Quentin leads his Krakens against the Quyth Survivors in the final regular season game. If they win, the Krakens are the Quyth Irradiated Conference Champions and are in the Tier Two Tournament. That means the possibility of jumping up to Tier One. If they lose, their season is finished.
Quentin, Don Pine and the Krakens are on a roll, having won five straight to claim sole posession of first place. Can they keep it going with a Week Eight win against host Quyth Survivors (3-5)? Ionath prepares for this must-win contest.
The Krakens (5-2) have climbed back into playoff contention, but now they face their toughest challenge against the first-place Glory Warpigs (6-1).

Scott really captured my imagination with this series. I’m not a football fan which is good because this story is about way more than football. If you like sci-fi, aliens, gangsters and galaxy wide conspiracies, this series is for you.
Thank you Scott Sigler for creating this amazing book series.
My favorite series ever. Scott Sigler is a genius. Very well done.
