"[Black Hole Sun] rockets readers to new frontiers…action packed."

- Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins

 

 

The first book in David Macinnis Gill’s popular science fiction series, Black Hole Sun is a masterful combination of great storytelling and impressive character-building. Young Durango is a disgraced mercenary, fighting battles on Mars while trying to save his imprisoned father from an even worse fate. He’s lost everything, and his desperation only makes him more dangerous to his enemies.

 

Durango and his crew are believable and compelling characters, making this more than just a shoot-em-up space adventure. But there’s plenty of fast-paced action, too. If you loved the nuanced complexity of the Hunger Games, this impressive series debut is for you.

 

Continue the adventures with the newest book in this critically-acclaimed series, Shadow of the Sun, available now for NOOK.

 


 

 

This free offer is a great way to start your kids on an exciting learning adventure, and once they’ve mastered the word challenges, they’ll be ready for more skill-building fun in Monkey Preschool Lunchbox & Monkey Math School Sunshine.
