    A greed driven corporation exploits human desire to discover new

    A greed driven corporation exploits human desire to discover new worlds and species. A relatively fast moving story with some decent characters.
    The reader faces some high tech aliens with vicious nature and some primitive, avatar creatures with tails in a tribal set up on a world that turns out to be created for no reason other than a recreational killing ground for the aliens. The humans turn out to be cunning enough to outwit the aliens, save the avatar creatures and escape the system about to be destroyed by high radiation animating from a dying star.
    Overall, entertaining.

    The target audience for this book is approximately 5-10 years old. I
    stopped reading (in disgust) when the characters started arguing about
    who was going on an EVA and using arguments like "It's my
    Turn!" and "That's not fair." Good thing the book was free.
