Summary

Summary

When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution humanity has been waiting for. The Undying's advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and their message leads to the planet Gaia, a treasure trove waiting to be explored. For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an ancient alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study... as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don't loot everything first.

Publisher's Weekly Review

In this fast-paced SF adventure from the coauthors of the Starbound trilogy, a scholar and a scavenger reluctantly join forces to unravel the secrets of an alien temple. For 16-year-old Mia Radcliffe, discovering the long-lost technology of an extinct race known as the Undying could allow her to free her sister from indentured servitude. Jules Addison wants to redeem the reputation of his father, who decoded the Undying's transmission and then repudiated his own work. Together, they must solve the Undying's riddles and traps, all while being pursued by a ruthless mercenary team bent on exploiting the temple's supposed riches. As Mia and Jules learn to trust-even care for-each other amid constant tension and brushes with death, they come closer to uncovering the Undying's greatest secret. Mia and Jules have chemistry and work well together, their partnership is entertaining and believable, and the villains and dangers are similarly plausible. A nerve-racking cliffhanger will leave readers eager for the second half of this planned duology. Ages 14-up. Agency: Adams Literary. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
