Brace yourself for an adrenaline-fueled adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you listen to the captivating voice of narrator Adam Verner.
Set in the 22nd Century, where our beloved Earth is engulfed in war and desperation, a remarkable group of individuals toils tirelessly on the moon to extract its valuable energy source: Helium-3. Enter sixteen-year-old Crater Trueblood, a brave and tenacious young soul, who finds joy in the perilous job of mining this life-sustaining element. But fate has something extraordinary in store for him.
One day, when Crater heroically saves a fellow miner, his life takes a seismic shift. Astounded by his acts of bravery, the mine's owner decides to bestow upon Crater a mission that will push the limits of his courage and resilience. Though filled with self-doubt, our young protagonist realizes that he has no choice but to embrace this treacherous endeavor. The future of the moon, and potentially beyond, rests in his hands.
Guided by Maria, the stunning yet infuriating granddaughter of the mine owner, and aided by his trusty gillie, a delightful and occasionally mischievous glob of slime mold cells, Crater must face an array of foes, both human and altered beyond recognition, on his quest to fulfill his mission. Prepare to witness battles of epic proportions, where the line between ally and enemy blurs, and the stakes are higher than the moon itself.
Bestselling author Homer Hickam, renowned for his masterful storytelling in "Rocket Boys," takes you on a sensory adventure that will leave you breathless. As you journey across the moon with Crater, every astronomical marvel will ignite your imagination and forever transform the way you gaze at the night sky.
