It is my understanding that this series was written toward a teen and pre-teen audience. It would be a great book to use in a thematic study with language arts students who were studying, geology, the moon, and astronomy.
Unfortunately, this series must compete against other popular themed series books that have vampires, mysticism, and similar appealing themes with younger readers.
While this book was published by a "Christian" publisher which is part of a major publishing house, I really felt the morality in it was more of a universal nature that would be found in many diverse faiths and religions. .
This series could easily be made into a series of movies for all ages, but in today's age science fiction themed series do not seem to have the broad appeal with today's readers and audiences that they once had.
The weakness in this series is not the quality of writing, the theme, or stories. It is more one of marketing. The marketing of the series just does not reach out and grab the number of potential readers that it might.
I have read most of Mr. Hickam's books, and I have met him twice. This book, like all of his books is extremely well written. I always look forward to his new releases.
The second time I met Mr. Hickam, I told him that I had passed one of his books on to my English teacher mother, and he told me that was a high compliment. If my mother was still teaching, I would be telling her that this series of books would be a good stories to suggest for independent reading and might be an interesting class literature study.
