The Wilder Voyages - Book 1
For a group of kids stranded, surviving in space is difficult. But when the nearest habital planet is crawling with ginormous insects, it may be impossible.
Space has always been home to Jake and Ashley Wilder. They live with their parents and other crewmembers on a space station. Their mission: to terraform the planet below. Until an emergency alarm sounds. Just before their space-station home explodes, Jake, Ashley, and three other “spacelings” jettison in an escape pod, hoping their parents escaped in time.
They voyage to Santaro–a habitable planet populated with human colonists, and no deadly predators, or so the pod’s computer tells them. But where is everyone? Who demolished the lab? And why did that space shuttle-sized dragonfly just swoop in and chomp down on that enormous butterfly?
Wait . . . what?
They soon discover that normally small, non-lethal creatures have grown to gigantic proportions. The planet is literally crawling with giant ants, spiders, scorpions, and—you guessed it—lots of other ginormous insects and arachnids. They’re creepy. They’re deadly. And they’re hungry.
Will Jake, Ashley, and their podmates find a way to save themselves from becoming a bug’s lunch? Will they be able to blast off Santaro and find their parents? Only if they can survive their Voyage to the Planet of the Giant Bugs. Read it today!
