The heart-pounding sequel to The Lighthouse Land

Jamie O’Neill is back on Earth, where no one but his best friend Ramsay knows he’s the hero of a great war that saved an alien nation. Now he’s back to being a kid with one arm, no girlfriend, and a band that plays bad songs about intergalactic romance. Then news breaks on the Internet: a space probe has picked up a coded message from far across the galaxy. NASA’s best scientists can’t figure out what it says. Only Jamie and Ramsay realize it’s a message from Altair. They’re needed again.

This thrilling sequel to The Lighthouse Land is packed with even more adventure, battles, and humor than its predecessor, and it secures Adrian McKinty’s place as one of science fiction’s most exciting voices.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This thought-provoking sci-fi adventure offers universal appeal, excitement, and a one-of-a-kind hero whose courage and compassion will inspire any reader.”

    Children's Literature

  • “Few readers will be able to resist…teens will enjoy this first book in a planned trilogy.”

    VOYA

  • “McKinty, previously known for adult crime novels, brings an attuned ear for dialogue and a taut pacing to his first YA outing, the launch title in the Lighthouse Trilogy.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The middle book in McKinty’s trilogy offers both a new villain and heart-pounding action... Jamie’s decisions may be complicated by love, but his leadership has matured since his previous adventures, and Gerard Doyle gives his voice a new confidence. Doyle’s tone of cold fury as the Witch Queen of Balanmanik chills the calmest listener. As the story leads to a climax of epic proportions, Doyle’s pacing keeps the listener on pins and needles.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Janet Whalen-Jones | 1/14/2014

    " The sidekick character Ramsay makes this book possible due to his intuitive understanding of science and maths. Books 2 are supposed to be the meat of the triolgy, and McKinty, as usual, delivers. Cliffhanger ending of course. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Diane | 12/31/2013

    " An OK book. I think I liked the first one better. Hopefully the last of the trilogy is more exciting. "

    " This one I had a little harder of a time getting into it until the last 1/3. However, I liked how it ended and it leaves you wanting to read the next one. "

    " Best of the 3 books. Takes place mostly on earth and Jaime has to decide whether to save earth or altar (the other world he goes to.) "
