Achilles: The Deep Sky Saga - Book One (The Deep Sky Saga #1)

by Greg Boose

Young colonists find themselves stranded on an unpopulated moon—and not as alone as they thought—in a series debut from the author of The Red Bishop. The year is 2221, and humans have colonized a planet called Thetis in the Silver Foot Galaxy. After a tragic accident kills dozens of teenage colonists, Thetis’s leaders are desperate to repopulate. So Earth sends the Mayflower 2—a state-of-the-art spaceship—across the universe to bring new homesteaders to the colony. For orphaned teen Jonah Lincoln, the move to Thetis is a chance to reinvent himself, to be strong and independent and brave, the way he could never be on Earth. But his dreams go up in smoke when their ship crash-lands, killing half the passengers and leaving the rest stranded—not on Thetis, but on its cruel and unpopulated moon, Achilles. Between its bloodthirsty alien life forms and its distance from their intended location, Achilles is a harrowing landing place. When all of the adult survivors suddenly disappear, leaving the teenage passengers to fend for themselves, Jonah doubts they’ll survive at all, much less reach Thetis—especially when it appears Achilles isn’t as uninhabited as they were led to believe. Praise for Greg Boose’s The Red Bishop: “Boose’s prose is quick, dark, exciting. He’s got the thriller element dialed. There are shades of Stephen King in the breathless horror of it all. This isn’t your everyday YA novel, there’s way more to it.” —Lauren Herstik, Nerdist.com

Action At Third

by R. G. Emery

This book will give a rare satisfaction to the person who knows baseball; and even the casually interested will be stimulated to a new appreciation of America's number-one sport. For Action At Third is more than merely sports fiction-- it is an expertly focused portrayal of defensive baseball, illustrated by a power-hitting team that learns, before it is too late, that good hitting will not always guarantee a win. Johnny Hyland, third baseman for the Dallas Hawks, plays common sense baseball; and he also has some unique ideas about how the Hawks can achieve the proper offensive-defensive balance. When manager Mitch Corey suffers from occupational ulcers, Johnny becomes the player-manager and gets his chance to make third base an outpost of strategy. His radical shake-up of the infield seems to defy accepted practice, and his bold defensive techniques are often bewildering--but they work with amazing success. The reader will admire Johnny's originality and applaud his courage, for this is baseball at its best. By the author of HYLAND OF THE HAWKS, etc.
