I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

Daniel lives on the planet Merwin with his father and younger brother Nickel. Life as a Zukar, a mercenary and thief is the life Daniel has ever wanted, the only one he’s ever known. Things are going really good for him that was until his father got himself killed. Now Daniel faces one crisis after another, first making sure his brother, runaway cousin Faulk, and himself are out of the house before the killer comes back to finish them off. Now Daniel must find out who the killer is and right that terrible wrong, and get to his father’s treasure before they do.

Easy right?

Heck no because nothing is ever as it seem and no treasure has ever been bigger. Daniel turns to the aid of his best friend Gabe but Gabe isn’t around unfortunately for Daniel, Gabe’s beautiful, off limit, younger sister Jade is and she is determined to help. As the four of them set off one crazy and dangerous treasure hunt they soon learn that it is no longer a matter of life and death for them but also a fight to save their planet from being destroyed. Can Daniel save the people he loves, find his father’s killer, save the planet, and fall in love without ending up dead?

Honestly this book was better than I thought it would be, don’t get it me wrong I thought it would be good or maybe average but was pleasantly surprised when I found myself in love with it. Right from the start this book was filled with none stop action and was jam-packed with adventure. This book had me fighting sleep so I could stay up and finish it faster. A constant page turner that didn’t let up. I enjoyed everything about this book. It had something in it for everyone, adventure, treasure hunting, evil sea monsters, other worldly planets, pirates, aliens, some humor, and just the right splash of romance. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a great book.
