*** Special THANK YOU to BOOKLOOK for providing a review copy.***
***My review is my own personal opinion.***


The Earth is devastated and the worst elements of humanity are determined to take over the moon. It’s up to the settlers of the harsh, gray moon to fight back.

Kidnapped by an evil group intent on the destruction of the world and capture of the moon, Maria Medaris, co-leader of the moon’s richest and most powerful family, initially fights for her life, but is soon dazzled by the promises and enticements of her captors.

Crater Trueblood, once rejected by Maria but still in love with her, and Crescent, a female bioengineered warrior fiercely loyal to Crater, use their cunning and deadly skills to come to her aid.

But will Maria be on their side when they get to her? And what of the Earth itself which is in the crosshairs of a destruction not seen since the massive extinction of the dinosaurs?


Homer Hickam is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Rocket Boys, which was made into the acclaimed movie October Sky. He is also the author of the bestseller Torpedo Junction, the award-winning memoir Sky of Stone, and the bestseller Back to the Moon. He is married to Linda Terry Hickam.


I absolutely love this series and I hate to see it end, but I’m ago thrilled with the way the author brought about the conclusion.
If you have not read the two previous books in the series, you’re going to want to do that before digging in to this one.
I loved everything about this series….the characters, the action (wow…there were some pretty intense moments!!!) and of course the relationship development.
I have a 3 year old son and plan to hold onto my copies to share with him when he is old enough to understand.
With so many inappropriate books out there for young boys today, we’re blessed to have authors like Hickam who do not compromise, but still bring us stellar fiction like this!!!!
