In Celebration of Avalon's Release . . .

Avalon is an awesome and exciting read, and I'm so happy to take part in the launch today! There's a quote and giveaway for you all to celebrate Avalon's birthday. I also just shared my review of this book in a separate post, so go on over there if you want to know why I loved this book so much.

Enjoy. ☺

Of the various star systems that make up the Confederation, most lie thousands of light-years from First Earth—and out here, no one is free. The agencies that govern the Confederation are as corrupt as the crime bosses who patrol it, and power is held by anyone with enough greed and ruthlessness to claim it. That power is derived from one thing: metatech, the devices that allow people to travel great distances faster than the speed of light.

Jeth Seagrave and his crew of teenage mercenaries have survived in this world by stealing unsecured metatech, and they're damn good at it. Jeth doesn't care about the politics or the law; all he cares about is earning enough money to buy back his parents' ship, Avalon, from his crime-boss employer and getting himself and his sister, Lizzie, the heck out of Dodge. But when Jeth finds himself in possession of information that both the crime bosses and the government are willing to kill for, he is going to have to ask himself how far he'll go to get the freedom he's wanted for so long.





Mindee Arnett is the author of one other book for teens, The Nightmare Affair. She lives on a horse farm in Ohio with her husband, two kids, a couple of dogs, and an inappropriate number of cats. Her dream home, though, is aboard a spaceship.

  2. I'm super excited for this book! This "Confederation" thing sound so much like Star Trek and I'm a huge fan of the series/movies/books of the franchise so I'm hoping I get to being a fan of Avalon too!
