Overview


The best-selling author of ANIMORPHS and EVERWORLD presents a fresh, exciting, and gritty new science-fiction series that combines a little 2001, a little Armageddon, and a whole lot of action!

Three groups race to gain control of the ship and Mother--the ship’s power source and the Remnants’ only chance to create a new Earth. It’s a race against the clock, each other, and forces beyond human comprehension...it’s a race the humans may not be capable of winning. And it all leads to the ultimate face-off between Billy and the Baby’s true form. Will the Baby prove indestructible? Will Billy be able to tap hidden powers? Their conflict rushes toward an end so finite, so unbelievable, weapons will be dropped in awe, fighting will cease for a time...and new enemies will emerge.

Read an Excerpt

Excerpt from Chapter 12

Tree! Tree! Tree!

Adrenaline coursed through D-Caf's veins. Faster, faster, still faster. He could feel another voice vying for control of the hoverboard, but it was weak. His own voice was strong.

D-Caf rocketed through the trees, making constant little adjustments to avoid their hundreds of swaying limbs.

Left! Left! Right!

He was god of hoverboard pilots. The Riders never went this fast. The wimps. They would never catch him. He was uncatchable.

Then, impossibly, a Rider! Moving much too fast, closing in from D-Caf's left side, all of the joints in his legs bent, rust-colored body crouched low, a black tongue extending from his eating head and nervously tasting the air.

Tree! Tree! Tree!

D-Caf couldn't fight at this speed. His only hope was outrunning the Rider. But the Rider was closing in, taking impossible risks, grazing tree trunks, moving diagonally closer and closer to D-Caf, and pulling out his spear with one hand.

D-Caf urged his board on. Faster, faster, faster. The tree trunks blurred. The Rider threw his spear. Missed by a mile. Then --

A metallic crunch, the squeal of wood under stress, and a high-pitched wail that clearly translated into "Rider in pain." D-Caf glanced back. The Rider had crashed!

D-Caf slowed down to rubberneck. The Rider's board was shattered into half a dozen pieces.

"Yes!" D-Caf shouted have a second before he felt a jaring impact. D-Caf's teeth slammed down on his tongue. His neck snapped forward, back. He sat down hard. His butt hit thin air and he fell, scraping the back of his calves raw on the edge of the hoverboard. He crashed to the ground, feeling the shock in his tailbone, up his spine. Tasted blood. Rolled over in a fetal position. Breathed in and out. Opened one eye and looked up.

His hoverboard was embedded in a tree trunk.

Well, I just read this book and I really liked it.It began to get a little boring and tedious during the middle, with it just being a lot of fighting between Tamara and the shipright with the blue meanies and the squids.But the last three chapters make up for all of that. I especially loved the part when Mo'steel got the super-human powers to battle Tamara. Keep them coming, K.A.!
