I couldn't wait to read this and now it is here! This is the third in Homer Hickam's wonderful science fiction trilogy. Like the two novels which preceded it, Lunar Rescue Company is an exciting, imaginative adventure. Although written for younger readers, probably 11-18, adults will enjoy it, too. The characters are all finely drawn and it was great fun to see their growth over the three novels. In this one Crater is no longer a love-smitten teen trying to figure out his place in the world (or moon). Now, he's got his own company which includes his brother Petro and the bio-engineered female warrior Crescent (who is the titular character in the second novel in the series). Although the first two novels takes place entirely on the moon, this one launches into deep space on a wild rescue attempt to not only save Maria - Crater's lost love - but, as the book progresses, the entire Earth! Highly recommended.

Homer Hickam has written a great variety of books, both fiction and nonfiction, and for a variety of age groups. He is one of my favorite authors of all time and I love everything he writes, including this book. I can't wait to read the others in this series!

It's a little bit sad, but the final chapter really shows how books should be.

Homer Hickam has a knack for writing funny and enjoyable science fiction. His Crater Trueblood series leaves me wanting more and that is not bad! They are good reading with a twisty plot. I highly recommend these books to anyone!

Crater Trueblood is the third in Homer Hickam's Helium 3 series of novels, after "Crater" and "Crescent". The main character in all 3 novels is Crater, who, in the course of the story, transforms from a young man who works as a Moon-based miner to an owner of a search-and-rescue business who ends up saving the world. And in this case, "the World" means what remains of humans, who no longer live on Earth but on the Moon. A young female protagonist, Maria, is an antagonist for part of the story, but it's fairly obvious from the get-go that she and Crater are meant to be. Other characters include Crater's brother and business partner, and then there are litle creatures called gillies, kind of like pets but who have minds of their own. My son read the first Crater book at the age of 10, and now, at the age of 12, has completed the new one. This series is among the very few works of fiction being offered by Christian publishers these days in which the target audience is young pre-teen or early-teen boys. If you have a son in that age range who likes adventure, the Helium 3 series is well-written. -------------- The publisher, Thomas Nelson, offered me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The voyage of this book had more than a few bumps along the way.  When delivered, someone – I’m really not sure who – decided to open the package it came in. And, either they realized it would not bring them much profit to steal or they didn’t like the look of it. Whatever the reason, they left it on the doorstep in a slightly mangled condition. Initially, I was quite upset. But then I read the series and sadly, I’m not so upset anymore. I wanted to like these books. I really did. I actually ordered this book from the BookLook Bloggers program and I was so excited about getting it. I wish now that I had found the time to read the other two first… Oh well. You live and you learn. This book especially, mainstream readers of YA fiction, will LOVE! There is even less Christ-Like writing and more nonsense about the supposed origins of our planet and our species. But that’s what mainstream YA readers look for. They don’t want God. They want fantasy. And it’s definitely in there.
