Review by Jill Williamson for NovelTeenBookReview
Crater is a Helium-3 miner on the moon. He’s also one of the few decent guys left on the natural satellite. When he saves the life of a coworker, he earns a promotion he’s not certain he wants that sends him on a dangerous adventure across the moon to pick up a package that many will do anything to keep him from obtaining.
Moon science fiction for teens? Sweet! This book was sort of a high-tech future meets the Old West on the moon. Many of the characters who live there had never been to earth. I loved Crater’s character and his voice. He was a lot of fun. This type of science fiction is a much needed genre for Christian boy readers, so I’m excited to see it available. Girls who love science fiction will like it too. There is a little romance thread in there, as well, but it’s not mushy enough to bother boys. If you like science fiction or adventure stories, you’ll like Crater.
