White Clay Gods: Book Three of the Disciples of Cassini Trilogy based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
White Clay Gods is the thrilling third book of the Disciples of Cassini Trilogy. Author Penny De Byl delivers an action-packed, suspenseful and intelligent story that takes you on a ride you won't soon forget. De Byl brings back the same characters we have grown to love (and hate) and introduces some exciting new ones. In this story we pick up with the team getting ready to populate a development on Titan. Exceptional teenagers have been individually selected to join the mission. An unexpected man has also been granted access to this new colony, Arden Bradford. Arden Bradford is responsible for the death of Marcela and Kian Barret's baby. Bradford had been conducting illegal experimentation and when it was discovered accidentally shot Marcela in the stomach. Marcela and Kian had assumed he was rotting away in a prison somewhere only to be confronted by him on Titan. When Kian discovers that Arden has come to Titan he calls upon Special Agent Zoe Moore along with her team, Nick and Holly to investigate. A clairvoyant, Gwen and a psychologist, Myles are also present to evaluate the teenagers while on Titan. As it turns out there is a deeper meaning to their presence and a shocking secret that the teenagers hold. De Byl weaves a thrilling, engaging and remarkably believable science fiction tale that brings to life space exploration, inhabitation, and the technology that will bring us there. Fast paced and full of mystery, suspense, murder, and revenge, this is one book you don't want to miss. After finishing this trilogy I count myself one of Penny De Byl's fans and I will definitely be keeping up with her work. I highly recommend it!
