Publisher's Summary

The third installment in the Zero G series by Dan Wells. 

Zero, Nyx, and the other Pathfinder colonists have adjusted to life on Kaguya. But Earth has built much faster starships-the Dreamcatcher arrives 10 years early, and the Stargazer arrives so early it actually got there before the Pathfinder did! Now the Stargazer is a lost shipwreck, and the race is on to find it, and who should show up looking for it but Nyx's dangerous family: Big Mama, Jim, and Kratt. Nyx and Zero will face kidnappers, pirates, shipwrecks, warlords, dragons, and maybe a new ally or two on their way to save the day once again.

Full cast of narrators includes Jonathan Davis, Houston Mahoney, Kathryn Grody, and Mark Sanderlin.

Enjoyable sci fi adventure

Good story line with a redemptive flair. Our past doesn’t have to define our future. Enjoyable characters. Geared more towards teens and younger audiences but I liked it as an adult.

Amazing and Entertaining series hope it continues

This is a great third book in this entertaining trilogy. Once I realized the first book was more geared towards younger audiences I was going to turn it off. But it quickly grabbed my attention and this third book is the same. In such a short time the world building is great and there are enough surprises that I am always left wanting more. The soundtrack is too notch as well.

Good But Elementary

This was a very fast read, which also led it to suffer from a lack of story and character development. I enjoyed what I heard, but it’s just written for a younger audience. I also wish the readers would have varied the voices of the characters a bit more.
This was good for a simple book, but it was just a little too simple for me.

What an absolutely delightful trilogy by Dan Wells!

The Zero G Chronicles by Dan Wells (Zero G, Dragon Planet, and Srargazer) may be characterized as a Young Adult (YA) series but as a 71-yeqr-old retired chemist, I was infatuated with the story, the vocal performances, and the unique explanations of the story-forwarders (Zero’s parents and the chief scientist from the Stargazer) to answer questions by the young 12-year-old Zero and 13-year-old Nyx.

The story line of colony ships from Earth venturing out on a 105-year journey to a new compatible Earth-like planet and the story forwarders laying out explanations of the totally non-Earth-type atmosphere, flora and fauna that the youngsters would encounter was very well told.

The ore-teen/teenager angst and desire to be listened to and be taken seriously in an adult world was written quite convincingly!

At the end of Stargazer, I was reluctant to bid the story goodbye.

I can only hope Dan Wells will continue the series within this new and unique universe!

this book was a great end to the series! ❤

I loved this book as much as I did the other ones!
once again, much action, and as intriguing as ever. You'll be hooked by the first few chapters, and you won't be able to stop listening! Quite mysterious, and at some points, tense.

Too much swearing

My children (9 and 11) love this and I think it's a very good story, but I hate the author's overuse of the word 'crap' which is classed as a swear word where we come from.

It’s ok

The audiobook isn’t as good as the past few ones, it isn’t as action packed and really isn’t engaging except for beginning
