Evolved Publishing presents the second book in the Noah Zarc science fiction series by award-winning author, D. Robert Pease for kids 8-13 years old.
Thirteen-year-old Noah Zarc rockets to Venus in a quest to learn more about his past. He refuses to believe his father is really the monster everyone says he is. Could there be valid reasons for everything he's done, including abandoning Noah at birth?
While searching for answers to secrets no one wants to talk about, even those that have remained hidden for over a thousand years, Noah becomes embroiled in a mission that could cause the greatest cataclysm in the history of the solar system. Will his name, Noah Zarc, be forever linked to the most devastating crime in humanity's existence, all because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time?
“Pease's strength as a storyteller lies in his ability to connect multiple time periods imaginatively, as well as Noah's excited, fast-paced narration.” (Publishers Weekly)
“This is another great mind-bender. The wild time jump details are fabulously thought out and cause some unexpected results.” (Michelle Isenhoff - Children's Author)

The series just got even better
Yes, because the story just got a lot more interesting! The first book was kind of the warm up. You know, introducing the characters, the setting, the relationships between everyone, as well as having a good story for the reader (listener).
But this part 2 is really where things get good!
The messing around with time travel. Not too confusing, but just enough to make you think. The clever way the characters return to a certain planet is very well done, not to mention how they keep hopping around to different countries in the past to try to accomplish their goals.
I listened to book 1, and the narrator continues to do an excellent job. Still hard to imagine it's only one guy doing all the voices.
Even better than the first!
