This is the companion to Invisible Sun and Black Hole Sun, which Suzanne Collins, the author of The Hunger Games, called "imaginative and action-packed."

Characters return, new characters are introduced, and the action never stops. Readers embraced the first two books in acclaimed author David Macinnis Gill's trilogy about Durango, Mimi (his nano-implant with a biting wit), and Vienne (his second-in-command), calling the books non-put-downable, thrilling, funny, and totally satisfying. A surefire bet for fans of dystopian sci-fi, from The Hunger Games to Battlestar Galactica. Cinematic action, rapid-fire dialogue, a futuristic setting on a terraformed Mars, and tragic romance—Shadow on the Sun is an unstoppable adrenaline rush!

Editorial Reviews

Suzanne Collins
Praise for Black Hole Sun:School Library Journal Best Book“Rockets readers to new frontiers . . . action-packed.”
Laurie Halse Anderson
“Black Hole Sun grabbed me by the throat and didn’t let go until the last page. In the best tradition of Heinlein and Firefly, Black Hole Sun is for readers who like their books fast-paced, intense, and relentless. Buy it, read it, pass it on!”
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Action, adventure, sci-fi, and horror buffs will all find this an almost perfect mix of all of the genres.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Kirkus Reviews
In this fast-paced sequel (Invisible Sun, 2012, etc.), ex-Regulators Durango and Vienne are at it again in a race against time on a dangerous Martian landscape. Shocked to have learned that his father heads up the enemy forces who captured him at the end of the previous book, wisecracking teen soldier Durango fights to escape the clutches of his evil dad and to reunite with his ex-assassin sidekick and love interest, Vienne. Meanwhile, Vienne seeks seclusion in a hidden monastery until she's offered a gig transporting fugitives through enemy territory with a team of thuggish hoodlums. Gill's work flips back and forth between the two adventures, punctuated by odd breaks of gibberish that at first read like unintelligible computer coding. Readers will eventually deduce that the code is actually connected to Durango's artificial intelligence, Mimi, whose presence is so strong in this book she's almost a secondary character. The rest of the narrative flows easily, and the action races along with plenty of last-minute saves, narrow escapes, fiery explosions and smart-alecky one-liners. This sequel doesn't stand alone, and Gill inserts just enough left turns and red herrings to keep seasoned series readers guessing. Still, it's inevitable that someone as daring and brazen as Durango will always come out on top in the end--the fun's in the watching. A refreshingly nondystopic sci-fi adventure. (Science fiction. 12 & up)

    The story was very captivating. Gill should continue Durango's story but send them to Earth.
