Description

When the tail of the comet Bhaktul flicks through the Earth's atmosphere, deadly particles are left in its wake, and mankind is confronted with a virus that devastates the adult population. Desperate to save the human race, a renowned scientist proposes a bold plan: to create a ship that will carry a crew of 251 teenagers to a home in a distant solar system. Two years later, the Galahad and its crew are launched. Their training has prepared the young crew for the challenges of space travel, but soon after departing Earth, the crew discovers that a saboteur is hiding on the Galahad. Sixteen-year-old Triana Martell and her council must find a way to neutralize their enemy...for if their mission fails, it will be the end of the human race.show more
