The Planet Thieves is the first
thrilling installment of a middle-grade series by Dan Krokos.
Two weeks ago, thirteen-year-old Mason Stark and
seventeen of his fellow cadets from the Academy for Earth Space Command boarded
the SS Egypt. The trip was supposed to be a short routine voyage to
log their required space time for summer quarter.
But routine goes out the airlock when they’re attacked by
the Tremist, an alien race who have been at war with humanity for the last
With the captain and crew dead, injured, or taken
prisoner, Mason and the cadets are all that’s left to warn the ESC. And

carrying a weapon that could change the war forever.
Now Mason will have to lead the cadets in a daring
assault to take back the ship, rescue the survivors, and recover the weapon—before
there isn’t a war left to fight. Download and start listening now!
