The Blue

What would you do with a mysterious starship and a giant housecat?

Alan Michael Wolf is an ordinary 19-year-old boy from a backwater colony world whose only dream was to go to military school. However, when he is sent home to recover from an injury, he finds himself stranded when he recieves unthinkable news: his home planet is gone. Destroyed. He is left with nothing until a chance encounter with an old man at a spaceport leaves him with three things: a mysterious starship, a giant housecat, and the news that his younger sister Katelyn may still be alive.

Alan takes off across the galaxy in search of her but discovers the old man’s ship may have led him to a big secret, one that will lead him to an even bigger truth about why his home planet was destroyed. But there are forces out there who will hunt him down to make sure he is silenced before he can reveal the truth…

If you enjoyed the John Carter novels and Beth Revis’ Across the Universe, you will enjoy The Blue. Also, there’s a giant housecat.

Praise for The Blue:

The Blue is awesome!! I loved that Alan was not perfect, that he was broken and feeling that adventure was beyond his reach,when in fact it was right in front of him. I will also say that because of this book I want my very own Leo!! As to not create a spoiler, I will not tell you who or what Leo is, to find out, you must read. I promise you will not be disappointed! -- A. Aylor

This is a great story following the adventure of Alan Michael Wolf searching for his sister after being given a small starship. Alan is young, and was going through a military/space academy of sorts before the story begins. There are some interesting concepts in the story and some villans that he runs into while searching for his sister. -- From Amazon
