Laporta, Mark

Entry updated 29 October 2021. Tagged: Author.

(?   -    ) US author whose first works were for Young Adult readers, beginning with the Changing Hearts of Ixdahan Daherek sequence, whose eponymous protagonist in the first volume Heart of Earth (2015) finds himself exiled from his home planet – for acts of arrogance and stupidity – and forced to live on Earth as a teenager. Fortunately, he fends of an Invasion by an unfriendly Alien horde, and as the series progresses engages in further exploits, including a Fantastic Voyage into the Multiverse. Laporta's second sequence, Against the Glare of Darkness, is full-blown Space Opera, though the underlying story – humans must fight off galaxy-wide threats – exploits a similar dynamic. [JC]
