Description

The Galahad Archives Book Two: Into Deep Space is the second of three thrilling two-book omnibus editions in the Galahad Archives series for young adults by Dom Testa. The edition includes the novels The Cassini Code and The Dark Zone.

When the tail of the comet Bhaktul flicks through the Earth's atmosphere, deadly particles are left in its wake. Suddenly, mankind is confronted with a virus that devastates the adult population. Only those under the age of eighteen seem to be immune. A renowned scientist proposes a bold plan: to create a ship that will carry a crew of 251 teenagers to a home in a distant solar system. Two years later, the Galahad and its crew—none over the age of sixteen—is launched.

In The Cassini Code, Galahad is preparing to enter a deadly minefield of asteroids when several crew members rise up against sixteen-year-old commander Triana Martell. Led by the charismatic Merit Simms, the mutinous faction lobbies to abandon the mission and return to Earth. In The Dark Zone, a swarm of unknown organisms affix themselves to the hull of Galahad. Now it’s up to Triana and her Council to uncover the intentions of their unexpected passengers. Can Triana and the crew of Galahad overcome these new obstacles and stay on course for the salvation of the human race?

The Comet’s Curse, now collected in The Galahad Archives Book One: Leaving Earth, is on the American Library Association’s Popular Paperback for Young Adults list.

“What began as a fairly straightforward tale of 251 teens shot into space to escape a ravaging disease on Earth became a deeper, broader, scarier, and more intellectually stimulating journey with every book.” —Booklist, starred review, on the Galahad Archives series
