9780062230201: The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra

Treasure Island meets Battlestar Galactica in book one of the swashbuckling sci-fi adventure series SLJ called "space opera in the classic style" in a starred review, from New York Times bestselling author Jason Fry.

The relationship between Tycho Hashoone, his twin sister, Yana, and their older brother, Carlo, isn't your average sibling rivalry. They might be crew members together aboard the Shadow Comet, but only one of them can be the next ship captain. So when the Hashoones find themselves in the midst of a dangerous conspiracy—one that will pit them against space pirates, Earth diplomats, and even treachery from within the family—each sibling is desperate to prove his or her worth. The only trouble is, if they don't work together, none of them may make it out alive.

Perfect for fans of fantasy adventures like Ranger's Apprentice and such space-age epics as Star Wars, The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra is a wholly original saga about a galaxy on the brink of war and one unforgettable family caught in the cross fire.

Don't miss the action-packed sequel, Curse of the Iris.

From the Author:

The Jupiter Pirates books have been enormous fun for me to imagine and write, and I'm so glad to have the first book out in the world where people can read it. Though I'm not a space pirate and you probably aren't either, we all thrill to tales of pirate derring-do. I hope Huff Hashoone, Thoadbone Mox and other space ruffians prove worthy heirs to the tradition of Robert Louis Stevenson and Howard Pyle, Errol Flynn and Johnny Depp - not to mention real-life pirates such as Blackbeard and Henry Morgan.

I also think we've all felt like Tycho Hashoone - awestruck by legendary grandparents, nervous about making our parents proud of us, and worried that our talents might not measure up to those of our brothers and sisters. But as Tycho learns in The Jupiter Pirates, he has talents of his own and is capable of more than he realizes.

Thanks very much for reading, and I hope you'll enjoy coming along with me on the adventures of Tycho and the other Hashoones.

Best,

Jason

From the Back Cover:

When you're a privateer, running a starship is a family business. For Tycho Hashoone, his twin sister, Yana, and their older brother, Carlo, the family business is far from easy.

For starters, they have to make a living however they can, all while dodging pirates and Earth's dreaded warships. Then they have to please the Jovian Union, an alliance of moons that provides the Hashoones their letter of marque against Earth's merchant fleet. But hardest of all, the siblings have to impress their mother, Captain Diocletia Hashoone, who keeps a log of how they perform on every test, simulation, and mission aboard their family starship, the Shadow Comet. Because while the three siblings might be crewers together, only one of them will be chosen as the Comet's next captain.

Talk about sibling rivalry!

Part high-seas adventure, part space-age epic, the Jupiter Pirates is an unforgettable saga about a solar system on the brink of war and one family caught in the middle of it.
