Publisher's Summary

The heart-pounding sequel to The Lighthouse Land

Jamie O’Neill is back on Earth, where no one but his best friend Ramsay knows he’s the hero of a great war that saved an alien nation. Now he’s back to being a kid with one arm, no girlfriend, and a band that plays bad songs about intergalactic romance. Then news breaks on the Internet: a space probe has picked up a coded message from far across the galaxy. NASA’s best scientists can’t figure out what it says. Only Jamie and Ramsay realize it’s a message from Altair. They’re needed again.

This thrilling sequel to The Lighthouse Land is packed with even more adventure, battles, and humor than its predecessor, and secures Adrian McKinty’s place as one of science fiction’s most exciting new voices.

Great writer

I love Adrian McKinty's writing. His Dead novels are among my favorites. I think he is a little out of his element writing a semi young adult SF series. Doyle is a great narrator and the book as a whole was entertaining. I will be finishing the series but hope McKinty goes back to his forte.

Great book for adults too

I loved the time travel and story line. I had no idea it was a young adult book. I can't wait to finish the series
