Christopher and the MINRS are running low on supplies on the distant planet Perses after the intense battle a few months earlier. Wanting to save his friends he leads them to the surface to collect batteries, food and water. Only to find a new threat to Perses. “Hello rebels of Perses. My name is Major Kirk Thatcher. I am here to hunt you down.” With the help of the Oracle the MINRS have a chance to strike a crippling blow to Thatcher possibly tipping the scales in their favor.
This book is amazing!! Kevin Sylvester has created an amazing book where a young teenage boy valiantly leads his friends against an evil villain despite the impossible odds. Making bases underground, one of their own disappears, and with Thatcher closing inn this book is full of action and intense situations. Each page creating a new twist or turn always keeping you in suspense. Every night I stayed up every night suspensefully waiting for what would happen next.
