"Thrillingly ambitious and imaginative." —Soman Chainani, bestselling author of The School for Good and Evil, about Last Day on Mars

It is Earth year 2223, but the Earth, along with the entire solar system, is gone.

Liam and Phoebe, having barely escaped our exploding sun with their lives, are in stasis for the decade-long journey to the rogue planet Delphi, where they hope to meet up with the rest of the human refugees, find help for their injured parents, and pass along the devastating things they discovered on Mars: that someone destroyed their world intentionally, and that that someone might still be after them, trying to finish the job.

Phoebe is carrying her own dark secret. One that finds her waking up secretly at various points in their journey, changing their path through space. One that will decide the fate of the human race, and many more besides. One that, very soon, she must reveal to Liam, whether he’s ready for the truth or not.

The second volume in Kevin Emerson's thrilling sci-fi epic is a bold and terrifying quest into the outer reaches of time and space—one that will change our heroes, and their friendship, forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great continuation of the series and now I need book three This sequel begins the task of answering some of the questions that haunted readers of Last Day on Mars. It also opened up some new questions as well. My students and I agree on a few things about this series: we didn't want to stop reading it, we love the changing relationship between Phoebe and Liam, and how both are trying to figure out what the heck is going on, and what they need to do next to stay alive. I love how this series does not dumb anything down for its readers and keeps a complex plot accessible. This was on my Must Read in 2018 list, and the conclusion told me another key fact, I have a title for my Must Read in 2019 list, and it is the third book of this series.

Editorial Reviews

“[A] well-written and exciting sequel. Emerson, who has clearly done his research, uses humor and age-appropriate metaphors to present the science in a way that readers will be able to understand.”
