    1. E ARC from Edelweiss PlusBenny and his friends managed to save the Earth in Space Runners, But now that Elijah is gone, he and his group of friends are stuck on Taj and are not entirely sure what to do, even with the help of Pinky, the Taj AI. Enter Dr. Austin Bale, who has "appropriated" a lot of equipment from various sources and has been hiding out, but now that the Alpha Maraudi have shown up, he reappears and wants to kill them all. Benny doesn't think this is a good idea, since he hopes th [...]

    2. I really enjoyed reading this book. There's non stop action that I imagine would be awesome to watch in a movie.

    5. This novel is great for young readers who love action or science fiction. From the beginning, it's action packed with plenty of plot twists. (I promise not to give any away!) Similarly to the first book, the action and technological elements were strong, but with the second we find depth in character development.
