The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra by Jason Fry

Being a privateer means you follow the rules and have a license to pick up cargoes from non-Jovian ships you can outmaneuver.  Tycho's grandfather is real disappointed they aren't called pirates anymore.

Harper Collins and Edelweiss allowed me to download a copy of the ebook for review (thank you).  It will be published December 23rd, so keep an eye out for it.  This is the beginning of a new series and it has a lot of potential.

Tycho and his sister Yana are twins.  Carlo is their older brother.  All three are vying to become the next captain of their ship.  When their mother, the current captain, steps down, one of them of will be picked.  But only one.  The others will remain as support staff.  As you can guess, all three want to be captain!

This is written for middle graders and is full of action, danger, and espionage.  It will keep them reading and wondering what will happen and how it will all turn out.

This is a good space fantasy that's lots of fun to read.  I'll be watching for more in the series.  I can tell life is going to get even more dangerous and the tests for the aspiring captains are going to get tougher.  It's not a boring series.

Happy reading.
