Publisher's Summary

Hell frozen over

Madeline Fathom had miraculously landed the crippled Nebula Storm on Europa. She joined on that frozen moon of Jupiter the stranded crewmembers of the ill fated EU vessel Odin. The Nebula Storm's reactor was ruined in the landing, the Odin's shuttle can't make the trip back home, and the only vessel that could have make the journey to save them has just been destroyed by a renegade crewman, bad luck, and the remorseless forces of nature.

But Madeline, Helen Sutter, A.J. Baker, and the team have one card left to play. All they have to do is survive lethal radiation, vacuum, and ice as hard as steel while they figure out how to make Nebula Storm fly again.

But even as they prepare to make the journey home, Europa has one more discovery waiting for them... a discovery that might be the deadliest trap in the Solar System!

A brilliant end to the trilogy

In my review of the second book of this series, I complained that something was missing. I guess the authors were saving it all up for this book. I just erased my next sentence because I don't want to spoil anything for you. I want you to have a chance to experience this story spoiler-free.

The story is great. It is similar in many ways to "The Martian." (another great listen) But there are several wow moments. In fact, maybe I should say wowee-dowee moments. I am sitting here feeling a little sad because the story of these people has come to an end. It was a great end, but I'm so sorry that I won't be able to spend tomorrow with them.

Read this series. Start with the first book and work your way through in order. You'll thank me.

good, if technical

a lot of dry technical explanations. narrator has improved significantly since the first book in the series. bad accents and mispronunciations are still quite common. however, it's pretty well written.

It gets a bit tedious

It's a little formulaic. So enjoyable, but it seems it's the same sort of plot. Daring space crew reaches out to do something seemingly impossible. They get into deep trouble and improvise a way to work through the trouble and improvise to come out shining in the end. Enjoyable, but kind of like fast food science fiction.

fine story, good characters

enjoyable romp through the solar system, with the familiar characters all doing their bit to carry it along.
