The Lives of Tao and The Deaths of Tao by Wesley Chu

The Lives of Tao is headed into its 7th printing*, and I'm donating 1st-printing paperback copies of both the Lives of Tao and The Deaths of Tao! (continue reading for more)

About The Lives of Tao:

Goodreads Choice 2013 Finalist - Science Fiction

Winner of the Alex Award for the American Library Association's 2014 Youth Media Awards

When out-of-shape IT technician Roen woke up and started hearing voices in his head, he naturally assumed he was losing it.

He wasn't.

He now has a passenger in his brain - an ancient alien life-form called Tao, whose race crash-landed on Earth before the first fish crawled out of the oceans. Now split into two opposing factions - the peace-loving, but under-represented Prophus, and the savage, powerful Genjix - the aliens have been in a state of civil war for centuries. Both sides are searching for a way off-planet, and the Genjix will sacrifice the entire human race, if that's what it takes.

Meanwhile, Roen is having to train to be the ultimate secret agent. Like that's going to end up well...

About The Deaths of Tao:

*Booklist Starred Review*
*Shelf Awareness Starred Review*
The sequel to The Lives of Tao.

The Prophus and the Genjix are at war. For centuries they have sought a way off-planet, guiding humanity's social and technological development to the stage where space travel is possible. The end is now in sight, and both factions have plans to leave the Earth, but the Genjix method will mean the destruction of the human race.

That's a price they're willing to pay.

It's up to Roen and Tao to save the world. Oh, dear...

*The 3rd book in the series, The Rebirths of Tao, is coming in December 2014, so if you have the winning bid on these you'll have time to read them before it comes out!
