Summary

Summary

Jeth Seagrave and his crew of mercenaries are pulled into one last high-stakes mission in this breathtaking sequel to Mindee Arnett's Avalon, which SLJ called, in a starred review, "an exciting piece of science fiction that keeps up its energy from beginning to end."

Jeth Seagrave and his crew are on the run. The ITA, still holding Jeth's mother in a remote research lab, is now intent on acquiring the metatech secrets Jeth's sister Cora carries inside her DNA, and Jeth is desperate to find the resources he needs to rescue his mother and start a new life outside the Confederation. But the ITA is just as desperate, and Jeth soon finds himself pursued by a mysterious figure hell-bent on capturing him and his crew--dead or alive.

With nowhere to run and only one play left, Jeth enters into a bargain with the last person he ever thought he'd see again: Daxton Price, the galaxy's newest and most fearsome crime lord. Dax promises to help Jeth, but his help will only come at a price--a price that could mean sacrificing everything Jeth has fought for until now.

Booklist Review

Teen spaceship captain Jeth Seagrave and his crew are in trouble. His scientist girlfriend and two sisters support the plan to rescue Jeth's mother, who holds the secret to metatech (space travel faster than the speed of light), but the rest of the crew's loyalties are shifting. When the Interstellar Transit Authority captures their spaceship, Jeth meets the fate he narrowly escaped in the first book, Avalon (2014) the insertion of a brain implant that ties him to the ITA and the leaders who killed his father and imprisoned his mother. While it won't stand alone, the cinematic feel and nonstop action will please series fans.--Carton, Debbie Copyright 2010 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-Picking up where Avalon (HarperCollins, 2014) left off, this novel has Jeth Seagrave, along with his newly discovered sister and his crew, the Malleus Shades-a bunch of teen outlaws working jobs for an intergalactic crime lord-on the run from the ITA, who are still holding his scientist mother captive. Long-thought dead, she had been imprisoned for years by the galactic organization because she and her unborn child were radically changed by their time in deep space, gaining the ability to manipulate time and space mentally. Jeth's otherworldly sister Cora holds the key to restoring the failed Metadrives that hold the Confederation together. In order to reunite his family, and ensure their continued freedom, Jeth must rely on his crew and enter into an extremely dangerous partnership with the galaxy's newest crime lord, as he takes the fight to the heart of the ITA itself. While Arnett's previous volume in the series bore some similarity to Joss Whedon's TV show, Firefly, her extremely exciting follow-up finds its own voice and spirit. With its high-octane plot, multidimensional characters, witty banter, and lots of heart, Polaris will appeal to fans of science fiction and action/adventure alike.-Ryan F.
