Marooned in a Strange Land by W. James Dickinson

Jamie and Amanda started with only one thing in common, they were traveling with a parent in separate survey vessels. A freak solar storm wipes out all of the neuro-electronics, stranding them far from their Base Camp on Azimov-4.

Without their technology how were they to survive? An old book, an ancient knife, and a chance encounter with one of the indigenous species might hold the answer.
To be reunited with their fellow colonists, they must cross a vast wilderness, all the while being pursued by a large flying predator that stalks them in the dark.

Night of the Raptors
by W. James Dickinson

Every fifteen years on Mandeler’s planet there are great black winged creatures, the Raptors, which come in the night to kill and take people away to their distant lair. On his sixteenth birthday, Mandeler is gifted with a remarkable red stone, but it also coincides with the return of the Great Raptors. Driven by his tormented dreams of flying with the Raptors, he sets out on a quest to warn others of the advancing attacks. He is accompanied on his journey by one of the planet’s strange creatures, a denzel. As their path takes them into unknown dangers, the young Mandeler meets the street smart Gwenelle. Together they set out to find the mythical olive raptor to help them face the greatest danger of all.
