Revenger is a rocket-fueled tale of space pirates, buried treasure, and phantom weapons, of unspeakable hazards and single-minded heroism… and of vengeance.

Adrana and Fura Ness are the newest crew members of the legendary Captain Rackamore’s ship, using their mysterious powers as Bone Readers to find clues about their next score. But there might be more waiting for them in space than adventure and fortune: the fabled and feared Bosa Sennen, in particular.

The galaxy is filled with treasures… if you have the courage to find them.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Space salvage is no occupation for a proper 15-year-old girl. But Fura Ness, as demurely voiced by narrator Clare Corbett, is no ordinary teen…Thanks to Corbett’s vocal choices, listeners can hear this hardening in Fura. The chameleonlike Corbett also effectively voices Fura’s many diverse crewmates—from burly men to hardscrabble women…The enjoyable result is a layered star-spanning odyssey filled with drama, adventure, and, yes, revenge.”
