9780062235596: Avalon

For fans of Josh Whedon's cult classic television show Firefly comes a fascinating and fast-paced sci-fi thriller from author Mindee Arnett, which New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White calls "a heart-pounding, tense joyride of a novel."

Jeth Seagrave and his crew have made their name stealing metatech: the devices that allow people to travel great distances faster than the speed of light. In a world where the agencies that patrol the outer edges of space are as corrupt as the crime bosses who control them, it's as much of a living as anyone can ask for. For years Jeth's managed to fly under the radar of the government that executed his parents for treason—but when he finds himself in possession of information that both the government and the crime bosses are willing to kill for, he's going to find there's no escaping his past anymore.

With pulse-pounding action, a captivating mystery, and even a bit of romance, Avalon is the perfect read for hard-core sci-fi fans and non-sci-fi fans alike.

Review:

“Avalon will pull you into the darkest reaches of space-and you’ll be glad to be there. A heart-pounding, tense joyride of a novel.” (Kiersten White, author of the New York Times-bestselling Paranormalcy series)

“This is an exciting piece of science fiction that keeps up its energy from beginning to end … it is sure to be one of the most popular releases in the genre this year.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“Arnett’s fast-paced space western combines S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders (1967) with television’s Firefly in what appears to be the beginning of a promising series. Sci-fi fans will gulp it down in one sitting and ask for more.” (ALA Booklist)

“Secrets, betrayal, family, team work, and love are all at the heart of Arnett’s book. It is a plot-filled story with twists and turns that will keep readers guessing about what will come next.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

From the Back Cover:

Millions of light-years, no way out.

Of the various star systems that make up the Confederation, most lie thousands of light-years from First Earth—and out here, no one is free. The agencies that govern the Confederation are as corrupt as the crime bosses who patrol it, and power is held by anyone with enough greed and ruthlessness to claim it. That power is derived from one thing: metatech, the devices that allow people to travel great distances faster than the speed of light.

Jeth Seagrave and his crew of teenage mercenaries have survived in this world by stealing unsecured metatech, and they're damn good at it. Jeth doesn't care about the politics or the law; all he cares about is earning enough money to buy back his parents' ship, Avalon, from his crime-boss employer and getting himself and his sister, Lizzie, the heck out of Dodge. But when Jeth finds himself in possession of information that both the crime bosses and the government are willing to kill for, he is going to have to ask himself how far he'll go to get the freedom he's wanted for so long.
