The Web of Titan
A Galahad Book

by Dom Testa


After the tail of a comet skimmed the Earth's atmosphere, the world began to get sick. The comet has released deadly particles that contain a virus that attacks every adult on earth. A renowned scientist proposes building a ship to send 251 teens to begin a new home on a distant world. And so—in book one of this series—the Galahad was launched. In this second book, the ship is nearing Saturn, where it will pick up a mysterious pod that lies in an orbit around Titan. The pod is from the science station there—a station that has fallen silent. Triana and her crew aren't exactly comfortable with their mission, and the little the ship's computer can tell them about it. When the ship brings the pod aboard, crew members begin to get sick. Something on Titan is attacking the ship and crew, changing them. Can Triana and her council learn the cause and stop it in time, or will the Galahad suffer the same fate as the science station crew? Like the first book in this series (also reviewed on Myshelf), The Web of Titan offers a compelling mix of interesting characters, tense situations, and science fiction fun. It borrows from science fiction novels that have come before it, but the young crew of the Galahad helps the author bring a freshness and unpredictablity to the plot. The author has done a fantastic job of creating a series that can introduce young people to science fiction in an exciting and compelling package. I know I'm looking forward to the next books.
