Young colonists find themselves stranded on an unpopulated moon--and not as alone as they thought--in a series debut from the author of The Red Bishop.
The year is 2221 and humans have colonized Thetis, a planet in the Silver Foot galaxy. After a tragic accident kills dozens of teenage colonists, Thetis's leaders are desperate to repopulate. So Earth sends the Mayflower 2
--a state-of-the-art spaceship--across the universe to bring new homesteaders to the colony.
For orphaned teen Jonah Lincoln, the move to Thetis is a chance to reinvent himself, to be strong and independent and brave, the way he could never be on Earth. But his dreams go up in smoke when their ship crash-lands, killing half the passengers and leaving the rest stranded--not on Thetis, but on its cruel and unpopulated moon, Achilles.
Between its bloodthirsty alien life forms and its distance from their intended destination, Achilles is a harrowing landing place. When all of the adult survivors suddenly disappear, leaving the teenage passengers to fend for themselves, Jonah doubts they'll survive at all, much less reach Thetis--especially when it appears Achilles isn't as uninhabited as they were led to believe.Praise for Greg Boose's The Red Bishop
"Boose's prose is quick, dark, exciting. He's got the thriller element dialed. There are shades of Stephen King in the breathless horror of it all. This isn't your everyday YA novel, there's way more to it." --Lauren Herstik, Nerdist
