Teenager Jeth is the heroic protector of his crew in this sci-fi action thriller. Jeth’s parents were respected for their expeditions into deep space especially in an odd section of space where mysterious things happened. When they were killed, Jeth and his sister came under the care of their uncle who quickly gambled away their spaceship, Avalon, to a crime boss. Jeth and his teen crew now work as mercenaries for the crime boss in order to earn enough money to buy back their ship. Their new mission is exceptionally dangerous but might earn Jeth enough to buy Avalon. What reader will not root for the impulsively daring, yet responsible Jeth willing to sacrifice himself for his crew? Written at a brisk pace with danger at every turn starring characters with complexity and heart, this will be a hit for fans of science fiction, action and adventure. Highly recommend.
