By TeensReadToo TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 30 Nov. 2009
Format: Hardcover
THE COMET'S CURSE is about survival and 251 teens sent to save mankind.

When the Bhaktul comet passes through the Earth's atmosphere, many think it is just another beautiful light show. Never would anyone have guessed the devastating outcome this comet would cause.

The tail of the comet leaves deadly particles behind it in the atmosphere, creating a killer virus that affects the adult population of the world. Anyone 18 and older is to get sick and eventually die, and the virus is spreading across the world in all countries at a dangerous rate. The scary reality has many wondering where this will leave humanity.

Then comes a scientist determined to not give up and to save the human race, who proposes a bold, unstable plan that sounds absolutely unethical and ridiculous to many: to create a ship that will carry a team of 251 teenagers to a new planet in a distant solar system. Everyone is shocked and surprised by this plan. Many don't want to go along with the idea, but it is their only hope.

After preparing both the ship and the team of teenage space explorers for the long adventure ahead, the ship, Galahad, finally departs Earth. But soon after this 5-year long trip begins, the crew encounters problems, including the possible hiding of an adult on the ship. An adult who is willing to do anything to ensure that Galahad and everyone aboard never reaches their destination.

Now the council in charge on the ship and every teen aboard Galahad must find a way to defeat their enemy. If they fail the mission, it will mean the end of the human race.....

This is the perfect read for all bookworms, especially those who love science fiction, thrillers, or suspense. A great start to a new series!
