Crater Trueblood has to rescue his ex-girlfriend . . . and the entire human race.
Maria Medaris — gorgeous, powerful, and high-maintenance — is the 21-year-old matriarch of the most powerful family on the moon. When she is kidnapped by green-lipped, gene-splicing scientists, Maria’s only hope turns out to be the very man she once spurned: Crater Trueblood.
Crater and the Lunar Rescue Company must rescue Maria before she joins forces with the lunatics who have taken her hostage and aim to make her queen.
Turns out more than Maria is at stake: The planet Earth, majestically rising over the lunar horizon, is in the crosshairs of an asteroid engineered by Maria’s abductors. If Crater can’t stop it, all humanity on Earth will be destroyed.
The fate of two worlds hangs in the balance . . . and the clock is ticking.

* Are you worried about the future of your children, grandchildren, and students? If you are, you aren't alone. Homer Hickam is, too. That's why he wrote the Helium-3 trilogy that began with Crater followed by Crescent and now joined by Crater Trueblood and The Lunar Rescue Company.* These books tell adventurous stories of the future that most young people, even reluctant readers, soon find themselves lost within, turning page after page in eager anticipation of what's going to happen next. Homer has written these tales to not only tell good stories but to also give young people fascinating details of what it will be like to live on the ultimate frontier of space.* How will these novels help your children, grandchildren, and students? Because folded within Homer's fascinating stories are lessons in science that don't seem like lessons at all. We have heard from science teachers nation-wide who love these novels because their students learn science the best way possible. While they are having fun!!! * Homer wrote these books for readers ages 10-18 but everyone will enjoy them. In fact, we think you'll want to read them before gifting them to the young people in your family or classroom! We're also certain you'll agree that there are few books more likely to be enjoyed by young readers while also teaching them some important lessons, not only in science but also on the value of hard work, courage, duty, and honor.* And here is the prodigious trailer video for CRATER TRUEBLOOD AND THE LUNAR RESCUE COMPANY!youtube.com/watch?v=drAl-Rnjwk4About the Author:
