BOOK  SERIES SYNOPSIS

 

A series of young adult novels written by author David Peters (pen name for Peter David) continued exploring the adventures of the characters from the Photon television show. These books followed suit with the existing story line and included references back to events from earlier in the series while expanding upon the depth of the characters in these new adventures.

 

A stand-alone novel called "Thieves of Light" written by Michael Hudson was a reimagining of the origin story of how Bhodi Li was recruited to the Photon Guardians. This book deviates from the show in many ways, however it also includes many of the samekey elements and characters.
