Local author Rob Favre is thrilled to announce the release of his
latest book, A Daring Rescue by Space Pirates, the second volume in The Oldest Earthling series.
13-year-old Tom was one of the first people to leave Earth to start a colony on a new
planet. After nearly being stabbed, starved, and frozen to death, Tom helped save the world –
or at least the colony ship – in the first volume in the series, A Long, Long Trip on the
Hope/Freedom. Now, in the eagerly anticipated sequel, Tom discovers a secret about his new
planet that might tear the colony apart, or even kill everyone. Whew. That’s heavy stuff for a
boy who just wants to impress the girl he likes.
A secret trip off-planet results in Tom getting stuck on another spaceship with a girl he
doesn’t like, and a new friend who is a little too interested in ranch dressing, where hijinks
ensue, danger abounds, and someone commits a little light space piracy.
A Daring Rescue by Space Pirates is great for young adult audiences, or for any readers
who love humor and adventure. It’s 345 pages, available on Amazon for $9.99 as a paperback
or for $2.99 on Kindle. The ISBN is 9781980722298.
