The Galahad Archives Book Three: A New Life is the third of three thrilling two-book omnibus editions in the Galahad Archives series for young adults by Dom Testa. The edition includes the novels Cosmic Storm and The Galahad Legacy.
When the tail of the comet Bhaktul flicks through the Earth's atmosphere, deadly particles are left in its wake. Suddenly, mankind is confronted with a virus that devastates the adult population. Only those under the age of eighteen seem to be immune. A renowned scientist proposes a bold plan: to create a ship that will carry a crew of 251 teenagers to a home in a distant solar system. Two years later, the Galahad and its crew—none over the age of sixteen—is launched.
In Cosmic Storm, sixteen-year-old commander Triana Martell has disappeared. Not knowing if she is alive or dead, the crew must hold an election to replace her. Council member Gap seems the most likely candidate until an old flame shocks him by adding her name to the ballot. In The Galahad Legacy, the crew comes face-to-face with extraterrestrial life. An ambassador of an alien race comes to them with a proposal that could be their only hope for survival. And it comes at an astronomical price. Beset with doubts and surrounded by danger, can the crew of Galahad find a way to reach their destination--a new home for the human race?
The Comet’s Curse, now collected in The Galahad Archives Book One: Leaving Earth, is on the American Library Association’s Popular Paperback for Young Adults list.
“What began as a fairly straightforward tale of 251 teens shot into space to escape a ravaging disease on Earth became a deeper, broader, scarier, and more intellectually stimulating journey with every book.” —Booklist, starred review, on the Galahad Archives series
