Avengers of the Moon: A Captain Future Novel by Allen Steele
Curt Newton has spent most of his life hidden from the rest of humankind, being raised by a robot, an android, and the disembodied brain of a renowned scientist. Curt’s innate curiosity and nose for trouble inadvertently lead him into a plot to destabilize the Solar Coalition and assassinate the president. There’s only one way to uncover the evil mastermind―Curt must become Captain Future.
Curt is a young man who was orphaned at a young age and raised by his parent’s creations and the brain of a former colleague. When his wards reveal the truth of his parents’ deaths, Curt decides to enact justice. However, his plan is foiled by an assassination attempt of the president.
Avengers of the Moon is a science fiction pulp adventure. The clever and colorful characters make for a lot of humor and fun. And the fast-paced plot is full of mystery, intrigue, and suspense. This is an extremely entertaining read from beginning to end. I would love to see this series continue, as I love these characters and the pulp feel.
