The Lost Planet by Rachel Searles
This is what the boy is told:
– He woke up on planet Trucon, inside of a fence line he shouldn’t have been able to cross.
– He has a blaster wound to the back of his head.
– He has no memory.
– He is now under the protection of a mysterious benefactor.
– His name is Chase Garrety.
This is what Chase Garrety knows:
– He has a message: “Guide the star.”
– Time is running out.
Chase has a spotty memory, but all details about his own identity are gone. Of course, the mystery surrounding his identity is the focus of the story at first. But when after we find out who Chase is, the bigger mystery is what happened to him and why. And Chase begins to display a strange ability that makes his identity that much more puzzling.
The Lost Planet is a fast-paced, scifi adventure for readers of all ages. The story is light-hearted and fun, yet has plenty of suspense, danger, and intrigue. The characters are colorful and the aliens even more so. I thoroughly enjoyed this author and series debut, and look forward to Chase’s next adventure.
