"The Galahad Legacy" - EXCERPT with a giveaway (US/Canada)

Triana shook her head. “No. White light. I know I screamed, and I think it was because of that extreme shift. I expected to plunge into total darkness, and instead was slammed with an almost violent white light. It was like I pierced a veil or something. As soon as that happened, I passed out.”

“And then nothing. But...”

Please visit Truly Bookish for the next excerpt from the second chapter of The Galahad Legacy.  

Book Description:
 Life on Earth is over and it's up to 251 teens aboard the spaceship Galahad to save the human race

The Comet’s Curse, the first book in the Galahad series, was a Spring 2009 Indie Next List selection, an ALAN Pick for August 2009, and a VOYA Top Shelf Middle Fiction selection for 2009.  Now TOR is proud to announce the release of the sixth and final volume of the epic YA science fiction series, THE GALAHAD LEGACY (A Tor Hardcover; On Sale: February 14, 2012; $16.99). 
Council leader Triana Martell has returned from her journey through the mysterious wormhole, but she isn’t alone. She is accompanied by the ambassador of an alien race—the Dollovit. While the Council and crew of Galahad struggle to come to terms with the existence of the Dollovit, the ship begins to flounder. The radiation shields threaten to fail, damaged by the appearance of multiple wormholes. The Dollovit have a proposal for the crew: an offer of assistance that could be their only hope for survival. But their offer comes with an astronomical price. Beset with doubts and surrounded by danger, can Triana and her crew find a way to reach their destination—a new home for the human race?

Widely accessible science fiction filled with action, adventure, and mystery, this standalone follow-up features a diverse cast of characters with a strong female protagonist.  THE GALAHAD LEGACY is guaranteed to satisfy devoted fans as well as attract and captivate newcomers to the Galahad series. Books can be purchased here:
