3…2…1… We have lift off!
Welcome to the launch of the Scavenger Hunt Book Tour for the sci-fi space adventure The Galahad Legacy by Dom Testa! Starting today, March 5th, through Wednesday, April 11th an excerpt from The Galahad Legacy will be featured by a book blogger which is listed in the guide below. Don’t miss a single stop because when one blog runs a passage from the book, you will then be directed to a different blog where you’ll find the next passage in order. Each day brings a new excerpt!
Here’s a bit more about the scavenger hunt from Dom Testa:
The way I see it, you have three choices for entertainment these days. One, you can watch the presidential debates and campaign speeches. Two, you can ponder whether or not it’s a sign of the apocalypse when Jersey Shore folks begin procreating. Or three, you can join in the way-cool scavenger hunt based on the award-winning Galahad book series from Tor Teen!
After you’ve (correctly) chosen Number Three, here’s what you’ll find. The teenage crew of Galahad has been dispatched to colonize a new world in order to save the human race…but there are no adults aboard the ship. Along the way they grow, they evolve, and they find that life in space is no picnic, especially when you encounter a deadly stowaway, an ancient and bizarre uber-intelligence acting as a galactic police force, and some pretty creepy critters loitering around the perimeter of the solar system. And that’s just in the first few months.
The Galahad Legacy is the sixth and final volume in the series, where all (well, almost all) will be revealed. Get started today by picking up the opening installment, The Comet’s Curse, and by the time you reach The Galahad Legacy you’ll be twisted into knots. Here’s the best news: With all six books now available, you’ll have no down-time between each pulse-pounding episode. I loved writing this series, and I’m especially pleased with how it all wrapped up. Enjoy the scavenger hunt, and good luck! Remember, there are other treats, too, at DomTesta.com. Thanks, and stay in touch!
Her eyes fluttered open for a brief second, but the light seemed harsh, making her reluctant to open them again. The last thing she remembered was sitting in the cockpit of the pod, her heart racing as she again spiraled down into the wormhole. Her first experience doing that had taught her that it would not be pleasant.
But now she was lying on a bed, a sheet up to her neck, while muffled voices floated in from nearby. Her curiosity finally won out and she chanced another glimpse, cracking her eyes, allowing them to acclimate as she determined her surroundings. Of course it had to be Galahad, her mind told her, but her experiences in the past week—Was it a week? Was it a year?—kept her from accepting anything until she could see it with her own eyes.
Although, she had to admit, what she’d recently seen with those eyes was mind-shattering.
