In the not-too-distant future, in a place call Satellite City, thirteen-year-old Cosmo Hill is unfortunate enough to come into the world unwanted by his parents. And so, as are all orphaned boys his age, Cosmo is dipped in a vaccine vat and sent to the Clarissa Frayne Institute for Parentally Challenges Boys. But when Cosmo attempts to escape, he finds himself caught in a web far worse that he could have ever imagined, embroiled with private police, illegal racing gangs, and a corporation cover-up, until he discovers a horrifying secret that will force him to question everything he knows and everything he believes in.

Listener Opinions

    " I had wanted to read more science fiction this year and this is a recommendation from my fifth graders helping me to achieve my goal. So glad I got my hands on this action-packed adventure! Science fiction will still not become a favorite genre of mine but reading this title has shown me that there is much to gain from including science fiction in my selection from time to time. The science stuff in the story is totally intriguing and I guess that's what makes a really good science fiction: the science has to be believable enough to convince the reader that it could be happening one day. So, yes, I enjoyed going on this adventure with Cosmo Hill and his new-found friends, each one of them an interesting character on a quest to save the world while dealing with his/her own past. As always, Eoin Colfer has done a fabulous job in keeping the reader hooked with several unexpected twists and turns to the story. - However, here is one downside to the book, fortunately one you can avoid: the blurb gives away far too much. It's almost a summary and I would have found it very annoying to read before getting started with the book. Fortunately, several of my fifth graders had recommended it so highly that I hadn't even bothered to look at the blurb. Thanks guys, that was a great recommendation! "

    " This was an nice quick read, with nothing to mentally straining. I enjoyed the characters, but some of the interaction between them was a little predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christian | 1/27/2014

    " This book is great! Great story and interesting characters. It's one of the 'book' books that actually sucked me in! :D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tommy | 1/25/2014

    " It was the first Eoin Colfer book that I had read besides the Artemis Fowl series. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was almost as good as Artemis Fowl. I really enjoyed this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bastien | 1/21/2014

    " Half expecting something of the same magnitude as the Artemis Fowl series, I was disappointed to see this book didn't measure up to the talent Colfer displayed in that previous series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 1/12/2014

    " i enjoyed this very much, interesting premise and is much different from eoin colfers other books, i might even say darker. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zachary | 1/4/2014

    " a thrilling novel complete with action, a bit of romance (not a lot), and it's bound to keep you groping for more info. i demand a sequel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nayantara | 12/5/2013

    " Eoin Colfer is a great writer. This is the first book of his that I read which wasn't an Artemis Fowl. It shows how good a writer Colfer is. He can write about stuff aside from Pre-Teen Criminal Masterminds. It's an excellent book which every teen should read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mickey888 | 12/2/2013

    " this book is about a team of "kids" in a future world.Parasites are everywere, even if you got a small cut they wold be after you sucking your life out.this thrilling book is good for anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isha | 11/24/2013

    " relly cool sci-fi. very fast! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mickey | 8/9/2013

    " This was a really good book. I would recommend this to anyone. It is really well written and would read it again. I liked this so much I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 8/5/2013

    " Not liking this one as much as Airman, BUT Colfer has this gift...Just at the moment you think you've figured out where the plot is going, BAM, he turns it around and twists everything up. In a positive way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charlotte | 5/28/2013

    " We listened to this on the way to California for Thanksgiving. I'm not sure I would have finished it if I'd been reading it on my own. I really liked the reader and the different voices he used, but the story itself was only so-so for me. "

    " A great little sci-fi read. I liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roedburn | 4/20/2012

    " I'm a fan of Eoin Colfer and had some high expectations for this book. It wasn't bad and I did like it but it just didn't seem on par with Artemis Fowl and Airman, both of which I really like. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 12/24/2011

    " Eoin Colfer can do dystopia too, even if it does have a few tastes of Artemis Fowl. I liked that things weren't what they seemed in this book, the characters were interesting, and the dystopian world was perfectly screwed up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rorie | 12/3/2011

    " This was a very entertaining read. My first book by this author and I was impressed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 4/28/2011

    " Stefan died! D: Noes!
    And it ended with Cosmo just kissing Mono on the cheek. :P That sucks. It should've been a longer story, instead of just ending there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 4/11/2011

    " Okay. I like Eoin Colfer's other books better. Interesting take on future energy use and learning the truth about something you are fighting for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 4/10/2011

    " This book is fast paced but predictable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 4/1/2011

    " Different style, I loved it, the story was interesting and I like Eoin's way of writing, like always. It was a fun read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisha | 3/27/2011

    " It was a good read but I didn't think it was as good as his Artemis fowl books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TikiPaws12 | 3/23/2011

    " At first this book seemed like an orphan trying to escape his abusive orphanage, but it was much more than that. It had some turns I was not expecting and overall it was really ingenious book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenzie | 3/18/2011

    " This has been one of my favorite books ever since I read it in fifth grade. I'm too old for it now, but I reread it a year or so ago and loved it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Imajicat | 3/10/2011

    " I read a review that screamed that this was the Harry Potter of the future, space age wonderfulness, great for all ages. It isn't really, in my opinion, but it's cute and I read the whole thing. I don't think I will read any more if it is a series, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roseca | 2/14/2011

    " this book is very fun to read because of this guy that about dies then he sees these "creatures" but then he meets these group of kids and it all changes "
