AN UNFORGETTABLE RESCUE MISSION TO THE FROZEN ENDS OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM…
When mysterious lights appear in the night sky and his mother is abducted, RORY HOBBLE is thrown into an adventure of galactic proportions. With his firecracker social worker driving him on, he must outwit a secret human civilisation living on a Martian moon, survive the threat of otherworldly creatures and learn to speak to alien whales.
