Welcome back to the place that never takes a weekend off (well, not fully anyway or from books)....Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today we play host to a blog tour celebrating the final installment of a Young Adult that recently made its way into the literary world. What's that you say? Why haven't you heard about the first five novels? Oh, well that's simple....I hadn't either so of course I couldn't share what I didn't know, but from what I've been told, though connected they work as stand alone reads too. You won't have to worry about THAT though. (hehe....keep reading.....)
The series....the Galahad series.
(Sounds all sorts of mysterious, right?)
The book that started it all.....The Comet's Curse (which I'll be reviewing later this year). Here's a look at how it all began....
From the publisher...
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. Desperate to save humanity, 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.Two years of training have prepared the crew for the challenges of space travel. But soon after departing Earth, they discover that a saboteur is hiding on the Galahad! Faced with escalating acts of vandalism and terrorized by threatening messages, sixteen-year-old Triana Martell and her council soon realize that the stowaway will do anything to ensure that the Galahad never reaches its destination. The teens must find a way to neutralize their enemy. For if their mission fails, it will mean the end of the human race….
Now, the book we're here to celebrate and that brings it all to a grand finale....The Galahad Legacy.
From the publisher...
Council leader Triana Martell has returned from her journey through the mysterious wormhole, but she isn’t alone. She is accompanied by the ambassador of an alien race—the Dollovit.While the Council and crew of Galahad struggle to come to terms with the existence of the Dollovit, the ship begins to flounder. The radiation shields threaten to fail, damaged by the appearance of multiple wormholes. The Dollovit have a proposal for the crew: an offer of assistance that could be their only hope for survival. But their offer comes with an astronomical price. Beset with doubts and surrounded by danger, can Triana and her crew find a way to reach their destination—a new home for the human race?
Sounds good, right?
I thought so, and that's coming from someone who doesn't usually do a lot of Scifi reading. As part of the tour, I was granted TWO privileges which I now get to extend to you. First, a special excerpt from the final book that if you've been following the tour should fall right into place with all you've learned so far. Ready for the sneak peek? Here goes....
SPECIAL EXCERPT: The Galahad Legacy
He mumbled an uh-huh, then took a seat at the table. “Of course I’m dying to know what happened to you, but I guess I’ll wait for the others.”There was another uncomfortable silence. Triana wrestled with what to say next, but was spared when Lita and Channy walked in together. Both girls wasted no time in hugging the Council Leader.“I’ll start with this hug, but then I want you to turn around so I can kick you squarely on your tush,” Channy said with a mock frown.“Sleep okay?” Lita said. “Any new aches or pains this morning?”“Nothing new. I was telling Gap that things seem a little scattered, but I’ll catch up.”

Hmmm....curious, very curious....now I'm dying to know what happened to them as well and just who "them" is!?!
The tour continues through April 13th, the full schedule for which can be found HERE.
