Orion Lost

Publisher: Nosy Crow

This compelling science fiction adventure is set aboard the Orion, a large spacecraft which is transporting people from Earth to a new planet, twenty six light years away. Life on the ship quickly becomes routine for thirteen year old Beth, who attends school, meets new friends and makes an enemy out of Vihaan, the Captain’s arrogant son.

After months of uneventful space travel, the craft is unexpectedly attacked and all adults are incapacitated. Beth is informed by Ship, the Orion’s central interface hologram, that she is now Captain. Although it is a role she has dreamed of since the age of five, the reality of commanding a ship is overwhelming. She appoints Vihaan as second in command, but his obvious scorn for her authority fills her with self-doubt.

If they are to survive, they must put aside their differences and work together to fix the damaged ship and navigate to safety. However, they are surrounded by dangers, from meteor storms and ruthless space pirates to the terrifying, mysterious alien lifeform known as the Videshi.

Full of twists and turns, this thrilling futuristic journey into the unknown will have readers on the edge of their seats.
