Just a year into their mission, the crew of Galahad has endured a sabotage attempt, alien encounters, and a dangerous passage through an asteroid belt. Now, as unpredictable waves of radiation threaten the very survival of the ship, Council leader Triana has disappeared. Not knowing if she is alive or dead, the crew must hold an election to replace her. Council member Gap seems the most likely candidate—until an old flame shocks him by adding her name to the ballot. Does she want what’s best for the ship? Or are her motivations more personal?
Facing threats both internal and external, Galahad and its crew must confront…a cosmic storm.

“The most satisfying entry yet. It’s a five-year space mission, so at this rate, Testa will write 22.7 more volumes. Excellent.” —Booklist on The Cassini Code
“Grabs readers’ attention with the very first page and never lets go…. Both a mystery and an adventure, combining a solid cast of characters with humor, pathos, growing pains and just a hint of romance, this opener bodes well for the remainder of the series.” —Kirkus Reviews on The Comet’s Curse
“Part space opera, part mystery, the story draws readers in from the beginning with well-placed hooks, plenty of suspense, and a strong premise.” —School Library Journal on The Comet’s Curse
